Magic stepping down was relatable on a level

Marquette, MIApril 10, 2019 – A bombshell dropped in the NBA last night. Lakers GM and former Lakers and Michigan State star Magic Johnson abruptly announced he is stepping down as Lakers GM during a press conference.

Magic made a comment, after making his decision but not telling anyone, of him sitting in meetings planning the future of the franchise and him thinking to himself “I’m not going to be here next year.”

I had a similar thought process while working one of my college years jobs. I worked as an outdoor guy at Red Fox Run golf course, and toward the end of one year someone was talking to me about improvements we can make the following year. But knowing I probably wasn’t going to be back, I just smiled and agreed while thinking the same as Magic was.

So while it’s a bit smaller scale, I get it.
