Final Four WATN - Magic Johnson Lakers

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. The Lakers' star retired in 1991 after learning he was HIV positive. He later returned to the league before retiring for good during the 1996 season. 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.
