Happy Birthday to the GOAT! :bow:

Here's the Magic video montage from 1989's NBA Superstars, the VHS tape I watched approximately 435,402,971 times when I was a kid:

Happy Birthday. Magic! Glad you are here to enjoy life...especially now that the Lakers are gonna be BALLIN' again :-)
The End is nigh. Time for a total Cut and Shuffle. Kobe contract was a mistake...time to avoid making more. The future is here, whether we want it to be or not. An era is over, but for the death rattle, and it's time for the cycle to begin anew. Growth and change are scary and painful, but alas...nothing worth achieving comes easily.

Happy Birthday to Johnson. It's been a long journey from that fateful day in November 1991. Good to see he's healthy, active and having them.
Nor can the Lakers get blamed for always making the right decisions over decades. At some point its not just luck or "gamble", its superior management and superior ownership.

^^ For sure. Great to see those clips, too. It seems like so long ago, now. Magic was the man. It was such an incredible era to be a Lakers fan. But now is pretty good, too!

We've got the next best passer in a Laker uniform coming up this season... hopefully he can bring some of that fun back. :jam2:

Happy Birthday, Magic. It was always a blast to watch you play.

MAN, if there's one regret I have about the Lakers during the Van Exel era is him not getting a ring. I miss those Van Exel, Eddie Jones teams. We were just a player or two away from championship caliber. Look at Van Exel out there, leading the Lakers even with Magic on the team. I loved how he played with no fear.

And yes, HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAGIC!!

Oh is it a true legend and all time great's birthday? I hadn't noticed what with ESPN celebrating 25 years of human greatness today since it's Tim Tebow's birthday more importantly.

Seriously though, that Magic is still alive and going strong is a miracle and I'm sure he's one of the most grateful people in the world to be alive, I wish him many more years.

...still amazes me how a player of his size without the prerequisite blazing speed of his position could navigate a gauntlet of defenders and pick out a cutter or an open teammate on the perimeter for an easy score.

It really is amazing. On that .gif, he fakes three players, small and big by doing pass? (no), step, layup? (no), pass -- all while doing it almost in one elegant fluid motion. And the best this is: he doesn't even look like he's in a hurry or anything. Almost like he executed a scripted event for a movie.

Happy Birthday to the Best Athlete of the World (in the sense of leadership, competitiveness, respectful, good sportman, great winner, etc.).

Most of current sportmen lack of these things. He was Great in the Court and he is Great out of the Court. A perfect example in the Sport World.

Thanks for your SMILE. Thanks for the SHOWTIME (Best Basket of the History).

HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!!!
