Johnson, 59, announced he was stepping down at an impromptu news conference about 90 minutes prior to the Lakers' regular-season finale against the Portland Trail Blazers.

"There is no greater Los Angeles Laker than Earvin Johnson", it said. Los Angeles is lucky to have him. During his conversation with reporters, he said, "Somebody's going to have to tell my boss because I knew I couldn't be face-to-face and tell her. ..." "The draft is not here".

"(On Wednesday) I would have to affect somebody's livelihood and their life", Johnson said.

"What's tough for fans to understand is there's going to be misery before you can get good", Johnson said.

"Tomorrow, I would have to affect somebody's livelihood and their life", Johnson said, apparently referring to Walton.
