20 Magic Johnson-like tweets you may see during the playoffs

The 2016 NBA Playoffs have been lackluster, to say the least. Being outperformed by the NHL Playoffs, “Game of Thrones” and the presidential race, the NBA has taken a surprising backseat during a time where it usually stands tall against the competition.

35 years later: Magic Johnson's Game 6 performance

By Joseph Nardone Magic Johnson wasn’t always a household name.
