"As a young man, Earvin "Magic" Johnson admired his father and other small-town entrepreneurs who created jobs and served as leaders in his Midwestern community. He worked for them, watched them, and his interest in building communities through economic development grew even while his basketball career flourished. His fame as an NBA star gave him access to some of the most successful business leaders in the country. It was Earvin's own entrepreneurial spirit that inspired them to serve as his mentors." "Earvin made the transition from great athlete to greater entrepreneur through hard work and by avidly pursuing opportunities. He recognized that densely populated urban communities were ripe for commercial and residential development. He partnered with major brands like Starbucks, 24 Hour Fitness, and T.G.I. Friday's to lead a major economic push in these communities. The success of his businesses proved that ethnically diverse urban residents would welcome and support major brands if given the opportunity. Earvin continues to be a leader of urban economic development that provides jobs, goods, and a new spirit of community." "32 Ways to Be a Champion in Business will inspire and enlighten readers who wish to make a similar impact with their careers and business endeavors."--Jacket

Magic Johnson always showtime ( Visual )
5 editions published between 1996 and 2012 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Few athletes are truly unique, changing the way their sport is played with their singular skills. Earvin 'Magic' Johnson was one of them. He was what Bob Cousy was to the 1950s, what Oscar Robertson was to the 1960s, what Julius Erving was to the 1970s. Johnson accomplished virtually everything a player could dream of during his 13-year NBA career, spent entirely with the Los Angeles Lakers. Johnson did all of this while maintaining a childlike enthusiasm born of a pure love of sport and competition. As the interviews with family, former coaches, friends, and opponents in this film illustrate, beyond all the money, success, and fame, 'Magic' was just happy to be playing basketball
My life by Earvin Johnson ( Book )

My Life gives fresh and revealing insights about Magic Johnson's legendary basketball career. He takes us inside his championship season at Michigan State, the "Showtime" years with the Lakers, and his most recent triumphs in the 1992 All-Star Game and with the "Dream Team" at the Summer Olympics in Barcelona. Magic writes candidly of his teammates, coaches, friends, and rivals, including Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Pat Riley, Larry Bird, Michael Jordan, and Isiah Thomas. My Life is also a deeply personal book. With his inimitable frankness, Magic reflects on his boyhood in East Lansing, Michigan, the loneliness of his early years in Los Angeles, his relationships with women, his life on the road - and his fight against HIV and for AIDS awareness. And he writes movingly of his wife, Cookie, whom he has known since his college days
