Earvin 'Magic' Johnson
PHOENIX -- I love basketball, both playing and watching it. Now that the NCAAs are over, it is time for the pro NBA playoffs.
I'm really enjoying the Suns-Lakers series. I'm a big fan of both teams. The Suns just won game 1.
Magic Johnson is from my hometown of Lansing MI, and I grew up as a kid watching him at Michigan State and with the Lakers. I still have a picture I drew of Magic with a big afro from 1979 signed "Earvin Johnson, #33," which was his number at MSU before taking #32 with the L.A. Lakers because Kareem Abdul-Jabbar already had 33.
I'm favoring the Suns over the Lakers this series, in 6 or 7 games.
My fave teams in the east are the Detroit Pistons and Chicago Bulls.
