A big thank you to Lyle Spencer and Marvin Gapultos for contributing this week as we remembered Magic Johnson and how his announcement 20 years ago changed not only sports, but the world.
Sounds brash, but it’s true. Magic taking the torch and being the face of HIV and marching towards a cure has helped change the world. The fact that he is still alive, 20 years later, and looking good – he does not look anything like Tom Hanks in “Philadelphia” – has only helped his cause.
As we wrap up The Week of Magic, we take a final look at how great of a player he was and why he still remains loved in the hearts of Lakers fans, and basketball fans.
