I could go on and on about Magic Johnson – my favorite player from when I started watching basketball in 1988 until 1991.  Not today,  today i’m just going to say Happy Birthday Magic and thanks for all of the great childhood memories.  To most people 30 and younger you are probably underrated.  To most people 30 and above you are always mentioned right up there with Michael Jordan.  To me, you are in the argument with MJ as not the best player of all time but as the most valuable player of alltime because of skills as unique as Bird and Jordan,  Bill Russell’s leadership quality, Wilt/Shaq’s presence on the court and  that intangible that made everybody better.  That intangible is something most greats can’t claim.
