MESSY! Were These Shady Emails Magic Johnson Was Accidentally BCC'd On The Cause Of His Abrupt Resignation From The Lakers?

Magic Johnson shocked everyone when he decided to quit being the Los Angeles Lakers president. Now, we may know why. Find out inside...

Earlier this month, Magic Johnson pulled a move no one saw coming.

The former Lakers player (who played for 13 years in the organization) abruptly quit as the Los Angeles Lakers' president of basketball operations after serving in the role for nearly two years. At the time, he explained he made the move because he wanted to go back to enjoying life as a wealthy businessman. He also said he got tired of being fined by the NBA for 'tampering" when he would tweet his thoughts about basketball on Twitter.

Check it:

Magic didn't tell anyone - including owner Jeanie Buss and general manager Rob Pelinka - about his decision before the press conference, which went down right before the final game of the Lakers’ sixth consecutive losing season. Oop.

Turns out, there may be more to the story.

According to new reports, some shady emails exchanged between Buss and Pelinka may have had something to do with his exit. Apparently, management was trashing Magic's performance as president. And since he somehow was copied on all the emails, he decided he was DONE.

USA Today reports:

On Colin Cowherd’s show on Wednesday, Bleacher Report senior writer and Fox Sports 1 analyst Ric Bucher detailed a story involving Rob Pelinka and Jeanie Buss.

“My understanding is that there were some emails that were exchanged between Rob and Jeanie…about Magic and about what Magic was and wasn’t doing. They were critical emails. And somehow, someway, Jeanie, from what I understand, was CC’ing or blind CC’ing Magic on everything. That was sort of protocol. Standard issue.

"Somehow, the exchange between Rob and Jeanie ended up on that string of the blind CC’s that were going to Magic. So, Magic now is seeing emails from Rob to Jeanie that were critical of what he was doing and maybe most important in all this is that there was no indication that Jeanie was backing Rob up in terms of either going to Magic and letting him know this was going on or going back at Rob and defending Magic. That was not happening and so when he talked about the backstabbing, to me, my understanding that’s what started it. The fact that Jeanie waved goodbye and said ‘Thank you for all that you did’ was that she didn’t necessarily disagree with what Rob was saying.”

Chile, those accidental BCC's stay ruining lives.

Well, that could certainly explain why he dipped without notifying anyone. Sounds like he left where he wasn't really wanted.

Today, Magic posted a cryptic tweet about how the truth will always come out: 

 

Confirmation of the new report.  Sounds like it...
