In his first public comments about Johnson shocking the Los Angeles Lakers organization when he stepped down as president of basketball operations moments before the Lakers' season finale April 9, James said he was given no warning or heads-up on Johnson's decision.

Despite everything that happened, LeBron remains committed to the franchise and he is hoping that team owner Jeanie Buss and general manager Rob Pelinka will be able to make the right moves this summer to make the team better. 'Nah, I'm out of here, ' " James said.

"So it was just weird for him to be like, 'I'm out of here, '" James said.

When the Phoenix Suns announced Friday morning that they would be hiring Monty Williams to be the next head coach, it became clear who would take over that position for the Los Angeles Lakers. 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. "Kiss my ass. I'm gone.' Not even that", LeBron said on the show.

"I came here to be a part of the Lakers organization, having a conversation with Magic and really kind of breaking it down and saying how we was gonna make this Showtime again, and I wanted to be part of that process". 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'm not playing but my team is still playing. 'Hey 'Bron, it's Magic.

James revealed that he found out about Johnson's resignation from his business partner, Randy Mims, and then confirmed the news browsing his phone.

James, who missed the playoffs for the first time in 14 seasons, believes injuries played a big part in the Lakers not reaching the postseason for a sixth consecutive season. Magic was bailing on Los Angeles.

"We all knew that it was going to be kind of tough, But I was OK with the process". At year 16, you aren't really supposed to be anxious about no d-- process.
