  1. Magic Johnson was one of the very best and at the top of the best of all college players at Michigan St and in the NBA as a Laker and to this day, has a very great sense of humor and likeability or personality and I still see him occassionally on TV talking basketball or making a special appearance. Top shelf-all the way! He knows basketball as well as anyone alive!
