Happy Birthday to Magic Johnson | Ultimate Video Compilation
I could go on for hours about Magic Johnson – my favorite player from when I started watching basketball in the 80s until he retired (the first time). But I won’t. Today i’m just going to say, Happy Birthday Magic, thanks for all of the great childhood memories and 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 not only the greatest Laker of all-time but arguably the most valuable player of all time. You had skills as unique as Bird and Jordan, the leadership quality of Bill Russell, the dominant presence of a Wilt or Shaq, and that rare intangible that made everybody better. That intangible is something that separates the greats from the greatest and that’s why you are a GOAT.
Now let’s enjoy the highlights of the man more players in the 80s and early 90s would rather play with than MJ.
