Happy Birthday, Magic Johnson!

Magic Johnson
Johnson, 6'9", strolls the MSU campus, wondering why his ankles are slightly colder than the rest of his legs. 
"To me, everything is wonderful. Life is wonderful." - Magic Johnson
Today in 1959, Earvin "Magic" Johnson was born in Lansing, Michigan to Earvin, a General Motors assembly worker and Christine, a school janitor. In 1979, Magic helped win an NCAA national championship against Indiana State and some guy they called "The Hick from French Lick". Larry Bird and him would go on to the NBA as one of the best rivalries ever.
"A lot of black guys always ask me, 'Did Larry Bird really play that good?' I said 'Larry Bird is so good it's frightening.'" - Magic Johnson
