At Magic Johnson’s request, the Los Angeles Lakers have eliminated his honorary title of vice president and removed his name from the staff directory. On Saturday, the team said the change was made to clarify confusion about the Hall of Famer’s involvement with the club.

“Earvin will always be a revered and beloved member of the Lakers family, but he does not have a position or role with the organization at the time,” Lakers spokesman John Black said in a statement. “He is not an adviser or a consultant, and his opinions, comments and social media posts are solely his, and do not represent or reflect those of Lakers ownership or management. Hopefully this will eliminate any confusion over this issue in the future.”
