Magic Johnson cryptically tweets 'the truth will always come to light'

Magic Johnson cited a desire to tweet more as one of the reasons he decided to resign as the President of Basketball Operations for the Los Angeles Lakers. Just a few weeks after that proclamation, Johnson has definitely lived up to that promise.

Like an NFL wide receiver in the offseason, Johnson has already become a master of the cryptic tweet.

That could refer to a number of things. Given that Johnson ended his tweet with a smiley face emoji, we’re going to guess he wasn’t talking about a serious issue.

It’s also clear Johnson doesn’t expect a bombshell of an announcement to happen anytime soon. Johnson quickly pivoted to giving some NBA playoffs “analysis” minutes after firing off his cryptic tweet.

He also gave everyone his exciting plans for the night.

Many were shocked by Johnson’s surprising resignation, especially considering he held such an important role with the organization. Aside from the occasional cryptic message, Johnson’s Twitter page seems to indicate he’s got no regrets about that decision.
