Magic Johnson Booking Agent Details

Former Los Angeles Laker point guard, Earvin "Magic" Johnson is considered one of the all time greats who ever played basketball. After being drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers in 1979, Johnson's first season included a championship and a Finals MVP award. During his career, Magic achieved five NBA championships and three Most Valuable Player Awards. In 1994 he began his first year as the Lakers' Vice President. In 1996 he was voted one of the 50 Greatest Players of All Time by the NBA, and in 2002, he was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame. ESPN's Sports Century ranked Johnson #17 in their 50 Greatest Athletes of the 20th Century. In 2006, ESPN rated Johnson the greatest point guard of all time. In March 2012, Johnson was part of an investment group that won the bid to own the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Magic Johnson has taken successes on the court and translated them into creating the #1 urban brand in America today, Magic Johnson Enterprises. MJE is deeply involved in fostering economic and community empowerment by giving access to quality entertainment, services, and products to multicultural communities.

Johnson gives attendees an insight into the drive and passion that complemented his entrepreneurial skills that created one of the nation’s most beloved athletes and successful businessmen. His stories span his careers, both playing and business, to inspire audiences to embrace his pure passion and business acumen.

Few basketball players experience career longevity the way Magic Johnson did. The prominent point guard played for the Los Angeles Lakers for nearly 13 years— a major feat when you consider the fact that the average professional basketball career lasts just 4.9 years.

In addition to his impressive stretch in the NBA, Johnson has been celebrated for his unparalleled passing skills, his brilliant ball-handling and his record-breaking number of assists (retiring with an incredible grand total of 10,141 throughout the span of his NBA career).

But Magic Johnson is more than just a phenomenal point guard. He is also a massively successful businessman, an HIV activist, a sports franchise owner, a father and a husband.

His fascinating life experiences, both on and off the court, make him a magnetic and insightful speaker— one Sports Speakers 360 is proud to support and book on a frequent basis.

Let’s take a closer look at what makes Magic Johnson such a valuable addition to any event.

1. His Sports Career

When it comes to the reasons why people seek out a Magic Johnson contact, nothing compares to his chart-busting basketball career. Whether or not you are a basketball fan, you’re most likely familiar with Magic Johnson’s name and the far-reaching impact he has had on the sport. His basketball journey began at Everett High School in Lansing, Michigan, where he led his team to an overtime victory in the state championship game during his senior year. From there, Johnson went on to play college ball at Michigan State University and was the driving force behind the school’s championship campaign during his sophomore year. In addition to winning the NCAA Championship, Johnson was named MVP, which bolstered his notoriety and gave rise to him being drafted by the Lakers,  making him the first underclassman to be drafted first overall. This is when Johnson gained superstar status, winning the MVP award in his first season (another first-time record for a rookie) and helping lead the Lakers five NBA titles.

2. His Sports Achievements

Johnson holds a number of records that have yet to be broken, including being the only player in NBA history to win the NBA Finals Most Valuable Player Award in his rookie season, holding the all-time record for most assists in the playoffs and securing the most steals in a single season (208). Additionally, Johnson was a key member of the United States Olympic men’s basketball team known as the “Dream Team” that won a gold medal at the 1992 Olympics. The team is considered the greatest compilation of basketball talent ever assembled. It is difficult to summarize the magnitude of Johnson’s professional life since there are so many achievements to choose from, but one thing is for sure— he is an unrivalled talent who will forever remain in the history books.

3. His Post-Sports Career

Part of what makes arranging Magic Johnson speaker engagements so exciting is how inspiring Johnson is as an entrepreneur. His investment company, Magic Johnson Enterprises, owns multiple businesses, including movie theatres, restaurants, real estate developments and a diversity hiring startup. In total, his company is worth approximately $1 billion— a testament to how savvy and commercially intelligent Johnson is as an individual. He is uniquely qualified to speak on a range of entrepreneurial topics, from leadership and business strategies to innovation and investing.

4. His Legacy

One of the most compelling aspects of Johnson’s life, and one of the greatest reasons Sports Speakers 360 is proud to partner with Magic Johnson agents to coordinate public speaking engagements, is his HIV diagnosis and the inspiring work he does to raise awareness about the condition and support those who have been impacted by it. Johnson established the Magic Johnson Foundation in 1991, the same year he received his diagnosis. The foundation does incredible work to support those who have been impacted by the virus, including providing free HIV/AIDS testing to more than 38,000 Americans in 16 major cities and educating nearly 280,000 people about HIV, it’s risk factors and the importance of HIV testing.
