No hard feelings: Magic Johnson and Jeanie Buss have dinner
Magic Johnson may have abruptly quit his job as Los Angeles Lakers president and not given Jeanie Buss prior warning, but their relationship seems to be intact. In fact, the two seemed to make a point of proving that on Thursday night.
Both Magic and Buss shared photos on Twitter from a dinner they had together.

Magic made headlines for stepping down as president of basketball operations on April 9. One of the most surprising aspects of his resignation was that he shared he hadn’t told Buss, the team’s owner, about his actions ahead of time.
Magic said one of the reasons for his decision was he didn’t like the backstabbing that was going on. A report later suggested some emails behind Magic’s back that involved Buss and GM Rob Pelinka may have been what he was alluding to.
Despite the drama and the emails, Buss and Johnson seem to have put things behind them and remained close.
