After leading Michigan State to the 1979 NCAA crown, beating Larry Bird's Indiana State squad for the title, Magic Johnson became one of the greatest NBA players of all time.

Johnson has worked as an NBA commentator and also owns Magic Johnson Enterprises, which includes a movie studio and a nationwide chain of movie theaters.
