Magic Johnson out at ESPN
The latest shuffle on "NBA Countdown" involves Michael Wilbon and Magic Johnson leaving and Doug Collins and Doris Burke (on a limited basis) arriving.
Johnson's surprising announcement prompted a report on Deadspin.com that Johnson left in a huff over the departure of Wilbon and the alleged influence of Bill Simmons.
Lon Rosen, Johnson's agent, refuted that in an interview with USA Today, saying Magic "likes Bill a lot."
So it goes. Somewhere Sir Charles is laughing.
