Magic Johnson RumorsAll NBA Players
He was the target of some of Donald Sterling’s most racist and disgusting comments — but Magic Johnson says he’s forgiven the former Clippers owner … telling TMZ Sports, “I don’t keep grudges.” Not only did Sterling single Johnson out in his racist rant to V. Stiviano and order her not to be seen with Magic or any black people at Clipper games … but he went on to say he’s a terrible role model because he has HIV.
Johnson said James raised his game to a new level, as he became the first to lead all players in an NBA Finals in points, assists and rebounds. “This is as good as we’ve ever seen. It won’t be the top because he did lose. So we’re going to have to still go with (Michael) Jordan as one, but now he can probably take number two spot. It will be 1-A Jordan and 1-B LeBron,” Johnson said.
According to a source familiar with the matter, Johnson’s appointment is expected to help Square reach out to a more diverse audience that goes beyond Silicon Valley and New York and into more urban and underserved small business areas.
Square is bringing in Earvin “Magic” Johnson to its board of directors this summer. The former basketball player is one of the most successful business leaders in America and a great get for Square’s board. He is not only an NBA Hall of Fame legend but also a formidable business leader, running the multi-billion-dollar Magic Johnson Enterprises, as well as the Magic Johnson Foundation – a well-recognized philanthropic organization for its work with urban communities. “I am ready to get to work as a member of Square’s Board of Directors so that any business, in any community, can compete and win,” said Johnson in a Square company release.
