Johnson stepped down from his position as Lakers head of basketball operations last night.
Johnson made ambivalent comments about Pelinka that led some to wonder if their relationship played a role in the decision.
Johnson was publicly frustrated during talks with New Orleans, even going as far as to tell reporters that he felt the Pelicans didn't act in good faith. Once Walton's most vocal advocate, Buss stopped short of recommending his return to Los Angeles following the Lakers' disappointing season. "And what's important to me is, I get to help everybody within the Lakers". And I don't want to disappoint her.
Johnson also said he missed being available to players who wanted him as a mentor.
Johnson said part of the reason he made the decision was to maintain his relationship with Lakers owner Jeanie Buss. A year and a half later, he had landed his top free agent, LeBron James, and promised to bring in many more stars. Los Angeles was 37-44 heading into its game against Portland, missing the playoffs yet again despite the offseason addition of LeBron James. Johnson said. "That's a decision Jeanie has to make".
"Her and I have such an unbelievable relationship", Johnson said of Buss, the daughter of the late longtime Lakers owner Dr.
"I thought about [Miami Heat star] Dwyane Wade retiring [Wednesday], and I can't even tweet that out or be there", Johnson said. Magic Johnson was supposed to make the Lakers fun again. A person familiar with Buss' thinking said Johnson's decision did not guarantee Walton's job was safe.
"She doesn't know I'm standing here", Johnson said.
Since making his National Basketball Association debut in 1979, Johnson has been affiliated with the Lakers as a player, coach and minority owner, in addition to his run as president.
