Magic Johnson and the Showtime Lakers..


Well the Lakers just got hammered out of the playoffs in a most decisive way. With that in mind I though I'd share one of my all time favorites. I grew up loving Magic Johnson and his no look pass. He was a 6'9 guard!

The Showtime Lakers were butter! I even met Magic once but he wouldn't give me an autograph as he was playing pool. Yeah I was kind of pissed but he is still one of my favorites of all time!

  7. Guys who act like that with their fans kind of annoy me, to be honest. But, I guess, at the same time they might be sick of all the fans swooning them. It's cool that it didn't really change your opinion of him though. That shows devotion as a fan.

  13. Ballers are arrogant pricks. But probably this is the best sport here on earth.

  14. Boston ftw indeed, but this was actually the only period were they were likable. Magic was a genious!

  16. The best thing about basketball is the helpless faces the other team makes when that ball is JUST about to go through the hoop, I'll follow this one

  17. I know how that feels with the favourite player. A soccer player wouldn't sign my autograph card and I was so pissed as I was a little kid, but on the way to holiday we met another player in our plane who had to sign autographs for pretty much 75% of the plane. Man was he mad when leaving the plane :D

  21. I'm amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that's equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which not enough people are speaking intelligently about. Now i'm very
    happy that I stumbled across this during my hunt for something relating to this.
