Lonzo Ball supports mentor Magic Johnson's decision to step down

Magic Johnson cites Westbrook as he shockingly resigns from the Lakers

There's another part that wants to compete for an National Basketball Association championship before he's too old.

"Something like that, in terms of who I am and the person that I've become, and people that know my story and how I came up, that would mean a lot just because that's me". I know that it's a possibility that next year I could be here as well. Vucevic leads the Magic with 20.8 points and 12.0 rebounds in 31.4 minutes over 80 games this season and he's posted 60 double-doubles. "This would have been a great team for him to be out there for". The Hornets have only been to the postseason twice during that time and have never gotten out of the first round.

After his announcement, Johnson took to Twitter and thanked the franchise for giving him the opportunity. "I cried before I came here", the NBA Hall of Famer said as he fought back tears.

"I think all of us want to win, get to that promised land".

If he does not re-sign, though, then that would signify a major rebuild for the Hornets.

"I'm going to be around whenever she needs me", Johnson said. "I want to win".

It's safe to say that Johnson had mutual respect for Ball, considering he once dubbed the 21-year-old point guard the new face of the Lakers' franchise.

"I just want to play", Boucher said. "This team, this organization, has done so much for my career. Whether it was on the court or off the court, he was always there for me".

Neither does coach James Borrego. They looked like the season was over at the end of January.

Smart averaged 8.9 points, 4.0 assists and 2.9 rebounds this season for the Celtics, who will be the fourth seed in the East after posting a 49-33 regular-season record.

"I'm happy with what we did in two years".

Johnson said he wanted to be available to players who seek his mentorship, something he could not do in his position with Los Angeles. The Magic will have to make some adjustments if they're going to be able to break down the Raptors pick-and-roll defense and have the success that they need to to be able to score the ball. He later told ESPN's Rachel Nichols that he didn't tell Buss first because he was afraid she would have talked him out of it. Whether the other young players - Miles Bridges, Dwayne Bacon and Monk - will be on the summer league roster is still to be determined. Serge Ibaka has emerged as one of Leonard's closest friends on the team and tested his loyalty on Thursday afternoon. Their nickname: "Kemba and the Avengers".

"They're fun", Walker said. The Raptors have also lost three series over that same period in which they had home-court advantage, even though National Basketball Association teams have a win probability at home of about 65 per cent in the playoffs.

Williams said there's no way he intends to opt-out.

The former Lakers star, who has been part of the Laker family since he was drafted first overall out of Michigan State in 1979, took over as president of basketball operations a little more than two years ago.
