      Not only is Earvin ‘Magic’ Johnson Jr. one of the greatest basketball players to ever don an NBA jersey, he is also one of the biggest and brightest personalities the NBA has ever seen. He is charismatic, energetic, kind, and truly wise about the game. As a point guard myself, like all other young point guards growing up in the 80’s, Magic Johnson was truly a hero and the type of baller.
