Magic Johnson RumorsAll NBA Players
First, Magic Johnson was having a power lunch with ex-Disney CEO Michael Eisner Thursday — and teased that they might be working on a project together. Next, despite the fact he’s a HUGE Hillary Clinton supporter, Magic says he’s still open to doing business with Donald Trump — and wants to be friends with the guy — as long as Hillary is president.
Magic Johnson was on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday. The segment started with Kimmel airing an old commercial of Magic pitching doughnuts and cider at a local grocery store. From there it pivoted to stories about Prince, who had a different opinion of his own basketball prowess than Magic did. However, they were still close enough friends that Prince could impose on Magic to open up his movie theater at 2 am for a busload of his pajama-wearing companions. If ever a time machine is invented, this evening may have to be one of the stops.
Dwight Howard made the claims Tuesday night on “Inside the NBA” — telling Charles Barkley that naysayers like Magic Johnson have motivated to be a great player for years. “I’ll never forget the day I came in here and you [Charles Barkley] told me I wasn’t going to be good in the NBA. And I’ll never forget the day that Magic Johnson said I wasn’t going to make it to the NBA when I was in the 10th grade. And that stuff drives me every day to want to be one of the greatest players to play the game.”
