You need to watch this. It’s seven minutes of Magic Johnson talking, which admittedly sounds torturous, but I promise you it’s worth it. Between stories about the best shots ever, a Michael Jordan 360 on David Robinson, those legendary Dream Team scrimmages and a Christian Laettner diss, it’ll be the best seven minutes of your day. Someone needs to give this guy a talk show.

  1. As far as I’m concerned, if there’s no talking basketball the interview didn’t happen

  2. Wish they had cell phones with cameras in 92… then we’d see this

  3. Best 14 minutes. Watched it twice.

  4. I love the diss on the new generation at the end, although it’s unfair given the difference in competition.

  5. Was ready for Magic to have grasped his chin and gone to a flashback at any point during that.

  6. At the same time it seemed like I was watching a “where are they now” special with the cast of fresh prince of bel-air or the cosby show or something.
    But in a good way.

    And here he is, bring him on out….CLYDE DREXLER!!!

  7. magic did have a talk show…it was horrible. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_GQX4i8B30

    great story though.

  8. Oh, Taku… You’ll eventually get there. Someday.

  9. Decent stories, still unbearable.

    Magic is just a bad talker. I don’t know what the hell the deal is, but he emphasizes funny, has weird little idiosyncrasies like “it was THE East vs. West” and takes tangents at weird times. And it’s not stupidity, because he was pretty damn clever on the court and he’s been really successful off of it.
