Tyronn Lue and Le Bron James

The latest edition of the show, which stars LeBron James and Maverick Carter (both of whom serve as executive producers, too), featured a conversation regarding Magic Johnson's stunning resignation from his role within the Los Angeles Lakers' front office. Johnson resigned in an impromptu (and fairly bizarre) press conference, during which he admitted he had yet to tell the team's owner, Jeanie Buss, about his decision. He had no clue something out of the ordinary was about to happen. He said he was stretching in a room near the locker room when his longtime assistant and business partner Randy Mims approached him with the news that Johnson had stepped down. So it was weird for him to just be like "I'm out of here" and not even have no like 'Hey Bron, kiss my ass.

Magic Johnson announces his decision to step down. Some reports have surfaced that he was accidentally CC'd on some disparaging emails, leading to his decision to depart and go back to being just a multi-millionaire businessman. "And not even have [a heads-up] like: 'Hey, Bron. kiss my a-". And yet, LeBron may have the former Lakers and Bulls coach to thank for helping carry Ty Lue's candidacy for head coach across the goal line. Right now?' It was literally 70 minutes on the clock. In an episode recorded on April 11, but released on Saturday, teammate Lonzo Ball joined James and the departure of Johnson was a natural topic of discussion. I feel like there's a time and place for things, and I believe that you knew you were going to make that decision. It came at the heels of a disappointing regular season performance from the squad when an injury resulted in James' absence.

Trump Says It Directly: "Mueller Should Not Testify"
He declined to make a decision on whether President Donald Trump should be charged with obstructing the investigation. In one instance, the report said McGahn defied an order from the president to remove Mueller from the investigation.

The past few weeks of the Los Angeles Lakers' coaching search has created an unlikely alliance in Laker Land. He explained to me Year 1 is going to be tough ... At year 16, you aren't really supposed to be anxious about no d-- process.
