The Best Reactions To Magic Johnson Stepping Down As Lakers President

Magic Johnson

It was a random Tuesday night, but a night the NBA community will be sure to remember for quite some time. It was the final game for Dirk Nowitzki and the final home game for Dwyane Wade. Meanwhile, 39-year-old Jamal Crawford made history by putting up 51 points, and Paul George helped the Thunder secure their playoff position on a crazy comeback game-winning three against the Rockets.

More so than anything else, however, it was Magic Johnson's resignation from the Lakers that really grabbed the headlines last night. In a shocking and sudden move, Magic blindsided the team by quitting in front of the world without so much as a phone call to Jeanie Buss.

It was a wild night to say the least, and here are the community's best reactions to the news.

Clearly, nobody was expecting the announcement.

Others took a more comedic tone...

Where the Lakers go from here is anyone's guess, but their first step will be having to decide what to do with Rob Pelinka and Luke Walton.

It is a very interesting time to say the least, but one the community will not forget for some time.
