Magic Johnson : always showtime( Visual )

4 editions published between 1993 and 2005 in English and held by 17 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
