Magic Johnson's 20-year-old son was spotted making the scene on the Sunset Strip with his boyfriend this weekend and it's hard not to see the resemblance to his famous father — especially when he grins. Earvin Johnson III — nicknamed EJ3 — was hand-in-hand with his equally smiling BF when TMZ caught up with the happy couple.  EJ3 is one of Magic's three children and it sounds like the father and son have a great relationship together. The former Lakers star has already told the gossip site," Cookie and I love EJ and support him in every way." he added. "We're very proud of him." And the bond between the NYU student and his wealthy dad — who is part owner of the Dodgers — extends into the world of sports too.  The younger Magic said he caught a sneak peak at the "black print" of the remodeled Dodger Stadium and, from what he saw, said the new bathrooms looked "fabulous." The fur-clad EJ wasn't so enthusiastic about his father's old team's chances for the playoffs. "The Lakers have a lot of work to do," he said. "I'm hoping and praying for my Lakers." When the folks are in New York, it sounds like EJ plans the social agenda. According to TMZ, back in August, Magic tweeted, "Thx to my son EJ for hosting me at NYU. Look forward to taking him to dinner tonight in the city." EJ might want to hope and pray mostly for a healthy Kobe Bryant. Unfortunately your browser does not support IFrames.
