Earvin “Magic” Johnson’s winning streak is unstoppable. From his 12-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers — where he clinched five NBA championship rings — to earning an Olympic gold medal as a member of the original Dream Team, plus partnerships with Starbucks, Sony Theaters, and TGI Friday’s, Magic is no stranger to success. The trademark tenacity that secured three MVP awards and a spot in the NBA Hall of Fame took him straight to the top of the business world, where he built an empire that spans sports ownership, entertainment complexes, restaurants, retail centers, film and TV production, publishing, and media and entertainment management.
