A sorely disappointing 2018-19 season for the Los Angeles Lakers culminated in team president Magic Johnson abruptly resigning.

Since then, it has not been great for LeBron James and Co. Johnson’s recent comments calling out Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka coupled with uneasiness within the front office only add to this.

This could be a franchise-altering offseason in Hollywood. Unfortunately, it might not end up in the Lakers’ favor. LeBron is certainly worried about that possibility.
