Magic Johnson, once he arrived on the LA Lakers, quickly became the heart and soul of the team.
Johnson’s career achievements include three NBA MVP Awards, nine NBA Finals appearances, twelve All-Star games, and ten All-NBA First and Second Team nominations.
One thing Magic Johnson did better than arguably anyone else in NBA history is seeing the court. Johnson’s court vision added with the Lakers’ offensive weapons made nearly every team look miserable on defense.
Johnson led the league in regular-season assists four times, and is the NBA’s all-time leader in average assists per game, at 11.2. He played in 906 NBA games, holding career averages of 19.5 ppg, 11.2 apg and 7.2 rpg in 36.7 minutes per game.
He was a member of the “Dream Team”, the U.S. basketball team that won the Olympic gold medal in 1992. He also is a 5-time NBA Champion.
