The man in this video TRULY needs no introduction. An HBO documentary “Bird & Magic: the Courtship of a Rivalry,” focusing on him (and his friendly collegiate/NBA rival Larry Bird) is currently dominating water cooler conversation everywhere.

Earvin “Magic” Johnson led the Michigan State Spartans to the 1979 national title, in a championship game that revolutionized interest in March madness. To this day, it’s still the most watched title game in history.

In the NBA, he had a career that places him unquestionably within the game’s all-time top 5. His professional resume includes 12 All-Stars, 5 championship rings, 3 MVPs, the highest assists per game average in league history, and the co-captaincy of the greatest basketball team in history (’92 USA Olympic Dream Team)

In retirement, he’s become the most successful and well known spokesperson for HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention in history and an entrepreneur with a personality and charisma unlike anyone you’ll ever meet!

Without further ado, I give you two videos of Magic Johnson:


  1. Charley Davis says

    Magic is the best.

  2. Loved the upclose with Magic!

  3. paulmbanks says

    he has so much more charisma than Michael Jordan. Obviously M Jeff was the better player, but Magic is the nicer guy

  4. paulmbanks says

    LOVE the fact that he hangs around the program too

  5. Is that David Axelrod in the background.

  6. paulmbanks says

    It certainly looks like him…..
