If you ask him the secret to his success he will be quick to tell you “practice” and “understanding and utilizing the fundamentals of the game.” This legend is one of the few players who have changed the way the game is supposed to be played.
The same principles of hard work, sacrifice and discipline that translated into success on the court have again proven to be his most valuable tool in becoming a successful entrepreneur. His is one of the African-American community’s most influential businessmen and his considerable charitable work through The Magic Johnson Foundation has resulted in millions of dollars being donated to underprivileged youths.
