A film created in honor of Earvin "Magic" Johnson and Chick Hearn. Bill Simmons wrote that Magic was one of the major superstars for whom no one has made a definitive video "mix" or compilation. This is my attempt at correcting that.
--I don't prefer "mix" style videos that are set to music, so I tried to edit clips while using the original play by play. My intent was to demonstrate Magic's intelligent court awareness and passing ability; his cleverness and showmanship, his left and right handed traditional hooks (a shot that retired along with him); and his uncanny knack of hitting big shots and long bombs even on occasions when he just heaved the ball up.
--Props to my friend Davo (YT nym DavoBirmingham2) for necessary post-production work. Props to fans of any age and any affiliation who appreciate this era of basketball. Thanks to Larry B, Mike B, and Jim B.
