The three-time league MVP, issued a statement through his agent this afternoon saying he is ready to give up the NBA for good.
Johnson has quit the game twice before, but when he rejoined the Lakers in January of this year he seemed sincere about a long term comeback.
He played in 32 games this year, averaged 14 and a half points, and seven assists a contest.
But he was also suspended for bumping a referee and he spent a lot of time discussing his younger teammates lack of discipline and desire.
In other NBA news today, the CHicago Bulls Tony Kukoc has been named the league's top sixth man.
This award is given annually to the player who comes off the bench on a regular basis and does the most for his team.
Kukoc was a sub in over 60 of the Bulls games this season, and he averaged 13 points a game for CHicago in that role.
