Top Customer Reviews
The included footage of Johnson's career is stellar, and interspersed throughout the story are comments by family members, coaches, teammates, and rivals. Also included is Johnson's February 1992 jersey retirement ceremony at The Forum.
This DVD set contains three full-length games. No games from the peak of Magic's career in the mid-to-late Eighties are included, but all three are memorable--Johnson's first game as a pro in October 1979; Game 6 of the 1980 NBA Finals, in which Magic led the Lakers to their first of five titles in the decade; and the 1992 NBA All-Star game, which Johnson played three months after he announced he was HIV-positive. Viewers of the 1980 game will be surprised at how much running and fast breaking was done in a Finals game back then, and the '92 All-Star game was memorable for the three 3-pointers Magic hit at the end of the game.
The set would be a solid addition to any DVD collection of NBA history.
It would have been great to have an additional DVD like Larry Bird's or Ultimate Michael with actual games of the great man, not just highlights. While a good addition, not essential.
