Jeanie Buss responded to Magic Johnson’s unexpected resignation on Tuesday with nothing but love for the Laker great. She sent out a tweet following his press conference making it abundantly clear that there are no hard feelings.
Earvin, I loved working side by side with you. You’ve brought us a long way. We will continue the journey. We love you 💜💛 https://t.co/ofmQl6BtBz

The Lakers official statement on Magic stepping down as the team’s President of Basketball Operations was just as complementary as Buss’:
There is no greater Los Angeles Laker than Earvin Johnson. We are deeply grateful to Magic for all that he has done for our franchise – as a player, an ambassador and an executive.
We thank him for his work these past two years as our President of Basketball Operations and wish him, Cookie, Andre, EJ and Elisa all the best with their next steps. He will always be not only a Lakers icon, but our family.
As we begin the process of moving forward, we will work in a measured and methodical fashion to make the right moves for the future of our organization.
Johnson pointed to several personal reasons as to why he decided to step down, but you have to believe all of the drama surrounding LeBron played a huge part as well. The franchise is in a lot of trouble.
