Magic Johnson: If You Are Going To Talk Betrayal, It's Only With Rob

Magic Johnson made an appearance on First Take today and did not hold back any feelings he had in his time as the President of Basketball Operations.

Johnson says he started hearing bad rumors about himself which he was able to trace back to Rob.

"We drafted Lonzo Ball number 2. I think he's an outstanding all-around point guard. Then Josh Hart. So things got going in the right direction.
"Then I started hearing 'Magic, you're not working hard enough. Magic's not in the office.'
"So people around the Laker office was telling me Rob was saying things and I didn't like those things being said behind my back that I wasn't in the office enough.
"So I started getting calls from my friends outside of basketball saying those things now were said to them outside of basketball. Now, not just the Lakers' office anymore. Now it's in the media and so on.
"People got to remember something. I've been in this business for over 40 years. I've got allies. I've got friends everywhere.

Magic Johnson resigned on before the last game of the season when the Lakers were taking on the Portland TrailBlazers.
