Magic Johnson quit on the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night, which could mean a lot of things for the iconic National Basketball Association franchise, though the biggest immediate one might be the future of head coach Luke Walton.
After failing to pull a deal for a superstar to pair with LeBron James out of his hat during the offseason or before the trade deadline, Magic Johnson abruptly resigned as Lakers president prior to LA's last game of the franchise's sixth straight losing season.
When Johnson resigned yesterday, he said, "I like to be free".
It's with all this in mind that we should consider the latest odds from Bovada on who will run the Lakers, with Griffin as the betting favorite at +175. "Magic Johnson feels betrayed by folks within the Lakers organization".

Walton would have been replaced during the year if Johnson had his way, but Buss was reluctant to make the change until the season had concluded, according to Haynes.
"That annoyed him. You've got Rob Pelinka, the general manager, pivotal in all this, because he was the individual who was talked about at Lakers facilities constantly joking around asking the question 'Where's Magic?' - to bring attention to the fact that Magic Johnson was perceived as being an absentee executive". "Wish him the best. I don't want to disappoint her". I honestly didn't question it one bit.
The Lakers have won 16 National Basketball Association championships, second only to the archrival Boston Celtics, but have not made the playoffs since 2013.
Walton participated in exit meetings with players Wednesday, sources told Shelburne. "I wasn't as healthy as I wanted to be this year, but I couldn't say I would have this type of season in the beginning of the year, you know, the way things have started and how I felt".
