Not long ago when the magic was on court...

Showtime was a time in Los Angeles Lakers history when the National Basketball Association (NBA) team played an exciting run-and-gun style of basketball. Led by Magic Johnson's passing skills and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's scoring, the team relied on fast breaks and won five NBA championships. It was such an explosive style that it became a sports phenomenon which brought many Hollywood stars to the Lakers games. It was a spectacle never seen in basketball before.

Earvin Johnson (Magic Johnson) was born on 14th August, 1959. He was a basketball player and also a basketball coach. Magic Johnson studied at the university of Michigan, but in 1979 he left the university to play with Los Angeles Lakers. He won with Los Angeles Lakers five titles of the NBA. He helped the Lakers to become one of the most famous teams in the NBA. He was three times the Most Valuable Player of the NBA.

In 1993 he left the Lakers, because he was diagnosed with AIDS. One year later he won the golden medal with the USA basketball team in the Olympic Games of Barcelona. His last season was the 1993-1994, when he showed again his talent.
