Magic Johnson quitting on LeBron James and Lakers reminds Paul Pierce of Rick Pitino | The Jump



Rachel Nichols, Ramona Shelburne and Paul Pierce discuss the comments made by LeBron James on “The Shop” about Magic Johnson not telling anyone he was stepping down as Los Angeles Lakers president. Shelburne says she thinks Magic “just got selfish,” while Pierce compares the situation to when he signed with the Washington Wizards because of Sam Cassell, and also when Rick Pitino quit on the spot as coach of the Boston Celtics.

  1. NEED YOUR THOUGHTS::::::;;HOW EVERYTHING ELSE FROM THE LAKERS GET LEAKED BUT MAGIC RESIGNATION DOESN'T……DOES THIS MEAN MAGIC IS BETTER AT KEEPING A SECRET THAN EVERYONE ELSE THAT WAS INVOLVED IN THE ANTHONY DAVIS TRADE????💡👍💡💡💡

  2. Pretty sure Lebron had his house in LA and enrolled his son to a school in LA and refused to opt back into Cavs before Magic Johnson showed up to his house at 12:01am.

  3. Can’t believe they had him on the show and didn’t mention Celtics losing 3 games in a row after Paul said stupidly the series was over

  4. Magic quit because he made some of the stupidest moves I’ve ever seen with this team !! He doesn’t know how to build a basketball team he’s clueless he messed up signing an old man instead of developing players !! Under valuing players and replaces them with trash vets!! THIS MAN IS TRASH AT FRONT OFFICE OPERATIONS!!

  5. Magic did wonders only as a player otherwise he failed as a coach and an executive within Lakers
    Thank God he is leaning to his business partners otherwise he would have failed and b broke by now

  6. Always making LeBron the victim; just like when Clyde Frazier said he was not really being a good teammate, sitting all alone on the bench. Magic left because LeBron is just like Jerry Jones. He has to be in charge of every move.

  7. Magic behind the scenes: MAN BRON GARBAGE!!! If I can’t get somebody to commit by the end of this season IM GONE!!!

    Lakers staff: I don’t think we can guarantee anybody to commit wit LeBron and we have him 3 more seasons.

    Magic: IM GONE!!!!

  8. I heard a week ago that Magic had got a group text he wasn't supposed to see on accident and it was saying he couldn't do his job per Mrs Jenny Buss …. then after seeing that he quit. Espn still act like thru in the dark about it smdh …. this network is a joke more every day with they soap opera

  9. When paul pierce heard saying lebron blablabla..lebron his going crazy and his face is angry too much ..he tells everybody that he did not love lebron always hates lebron

  10. LeBron doesn't deserve a phone call foh this is the same man who left Cleveland on TV , didn't give Riley a phone call before his exit and now his feelings are hurt lmfao

  11. Magic is one of the greatest nba players ever but as a coach and president of a team he does a horrible job

  12. Lol Ramona fatberg was trying to get them to say it was Hollywood that brought LeBron. Yeah dude it's fax, Hollywood and magic helped.

  13. 🤔 Didn't Dwyane Wade lose about $10 million when Lebron UNEXPECTEDLY left Miami because Wade didn't resign with Miami in an effort to keep the squad together??

  14. Magic don't owe Labron ish. Play fat bank take skinny bank? Magic wins. Play who got the most rings? Magic wins. Play the who's more popular game. Magic wins. FOH Rachel.

  15. Maybe dont talk trash on someone behind their back and cc them on the email. He owes no one anything, they didnt back him up.

  16. Stop making excuses for iconic players. Magic refused to grow and learn in the position he was hired for. Period! Evolution is key in today's world no matter the field. And those who refuse to evolve will get their ass kicked or quit. Ironically, the person he wants to go back to cannot be separated from this guy who refused to grow. So good luck Magic

  17. I love when you guys talk about the Lakers and Lebron all the haters come out and in that they still mention Lebron's name..😂

  18. What gets me is we already knew LeBron didn't find out directly from Magic. So why is the media acting like we didn't already know he went out like that? Stop scrutinizing LeBron's show.

  19. Queer- People who practice strange or unnatural behavior. Erving "Magic" Johnson & Isaiah "Original Detroit Pistons Bad Boy" 👦 Thomas displayed queer behavior by kissing 💋 prior to the start of a nationally televised N.B.A. game 🎮". A.I.D.S (As I Die Slowly) is a man 🚹 made 💉😷 disease. Perversion will destroy humanity!  If we love 💘 the GOD that resides in us, we must keep our temples clean. Including the mind, body, & soul.

    All praises are due to the most high ☝! THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE🌌!
