EAST LANSING, Mich. Magic Johnson was home Tuesday night.
He just had to remember not to get too excited about it.
"I have to be a professional tonight," Johnson said before joining ESPN's broadcast of No. 1 Indiana vs. No. 4 Michigan State. "I'd be lying if I didn't say I wanted Michigan State to win I hate it when they lose but I've got a job...
While Lakers Nation and the NBA mourns the passing of owner Jerry Buss, let’s hop in the CS Time Machine and head back to 2002, the last time a who’s who of Lakers legends gathered to mourn one of their own — the late broadcaster, Chick Hearn. Speaking at Hearn’s funeral was Magic Johnson, who, in wrapping up his eloquent eulogy, turned and thanked “Colonel” Roger Mahoney...

Alright fantasy fanatics the Los Angeles Lakers are down by one with 3.4 seconds left in Game 7 of the NBA finals. If both players are in their prime whose hands do you want the ball in, Magic Johnson or Kobe Bryant?
For those who argue Magic he is without a doubt one of the Top 5 players in the history of the NBA. A 6-9 point guard with cat-like reflexes and eyes in the back...
Magic Johnson shared his memories Jerry Buss during NBA Countdown on ESPN on Wednesday night. “He touched my life in such an incredible way, I owe him a lot,” said an emotional Magic who will be speaking at Thursday’s memorial service.
Many people were shocked to find out during their lunch breaks Monday afternoon that longtime Lakers owner Jerry Buss had passed away after his long fight with cancer.
Buss touched many lives since purchasing the Lakers in 1979. The purchase price of $67.5 million was the largest transaction in sports history at the time. Buss produced 10 championships for the Lakers during his reign...
Why did ESPN have Magic Johnson working last night’s Michigan State-Indiana game with Dickie V. and Mike Tirico? Because that’s what you do in mid-February to make a #1 vs. #4 much more important. The Hoosiers won, 72-68, and now have the inside track to a Big Ten title.
Who, besides dorks at Indiana, give two ***** about a Big Ten basketball title? Yeah, you get to hang a banner...

We thought this little piece of information was interesting considering Steve Nash's struggles this year, the Los Angeles Lakers' struggles, and Nash's leg injury earlier in the season. The Lakers' point guard has passed another former Lakers' star, Magic Johnson, on the all-time assists list.Nash was able to do so in the third quarter of last night's win...
Steve Nash has been really good for a long time. If you asked me in 1996 when he was drafted, I would have struggled to believe he would arguably have a better career than Marcus Camby, Shareef Abdur-Rahim, Stephon Marbury, Kerry Kittles and so on.
It’s debatable whether or not his career was better than Iverson or Ray Allen. Last night Nash eclipsed another milestone, when...
Steve Nash (10,142) passed Magic Johnson for fourth on the NBA’s all-time assist list in a 113-99 win over the Celtics Wednesday.
Magic Johnson, Shaquille O'Neal, Kobe Bryant and Jerry West were
among a host of basketball greats who gathered to remember the life
and legacy of Los Angeles Lakers owner Jerry Buss.
This game was supposed to be about Michigan State. At least that’s what we were led to believe. This was the Spartans chance to take control of the Big Ten race, to make a case for a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament, and to do so in front of their beloved hero, Magic Johnson.
Nobody, it seemed, wanted the Hoosiers to win this game. Few believed they could. Not the broadcasters...
