Magic Johnson Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Earvin Johnson Jr. was born on 14 August 1959, in Lansing, Michigan USA. Earvin, is a famous retired basketball player known world-wide as Magic Johnson. He is known for playing exclusively for the “Los Angeles Lakers”, and during his career won numerous awards. Some of them include, NBA Most Valuable Player, NBA Assists Leader, NCAA Final Four Most Outstanding Player, J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award. What is more, Magic has been inducted into the “Basketball Hall of Fame”. Despite the fact that Johnson has ended his career as a basketball player, he is still a very active personality. He is involved in several business activities, so it can be said that Johnson remains very influential and his fans might admire his work off the basketball court.

So how rich is Magic Johnson? Sources estimate that Magic’s net worth is an impressive $500 million. The main source of this sum of money has been his career as a professional basketball player, although even not playing basketball anymore, his net worth still grows as he is involved in business, including having released several instructional books, and is an active philanthropist. If he continues involving himself in the business world, there is a high chance that Magic Johnson’s net worth will become higher.

Magic Johnson became interested in basketball from the very young age. His favorite players were Earl Monroe, Bill Russell and Marques Haynes, and Magic trained very hard to be like them, and soon became one of the best players in school. On the other hand, not all his memories from high school are pleasant ones, as when attending the Everett High School he experienced bullying and racism. Johnson then studied at Michigan State University, where he was able to continue playing basketball and improving his skills. Soon Magic’s ability was acclaimed by his teammates and he added a lot to team’s wins. In 1979 Johnson began his professional career and became a part of the team called “Los Angeles Lakers”. This had a huge impact on both the start and the growth of Magic Johnson’s net worth.

Regardless of his successful performances, Magic was not able to avoid injuries and in 1980 he was not able to play for a certain period of time. After his recovery, Magic again showed good form and helped the team to win important matches. In 1991 another unexpected thing happened to Johnson as he announced that he had HIV. After this discovery Johnson announced that he would retire from his career as a basketball player. Despite the fact that he retire, Magic was asked to play in the 1992 Summer Olympics, where his other teammates included Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, and Charles Barkley. In 1993 Johnson came back to the Lakers as a coach. This also added to Magic’s net worth. During this time, Johnson was able to show that he was not only a good basketball player, but a good coach as well.

Overall during his playing career, Magic scored over 19,000 points, averaging 19.5 per game; won five NBA Championships with The Lakers (MVP three times); and was nine times an NBA First Team selection, one of the most impressive basketball careers on record.

In 1999 Jonson had an opportunity to play in Swedish team, called “M7 Boras” for a short period of time, and then played basketball more rarely. As Magic had more time for other activities he became involved in business and even created his own record label. He also has his own company, called “Magic Johnson Enterprises” and this adds to his net worth. There is no doubt that he will continue his various activities and will inspire others.

To talk about Johnson’s personal life, in 1991 he married Earlitha Kelly. They have three children and reside in California. All in all, Magic Johnson is one of the best basketball players of all time. During his life he had to experience a lot but he was able to overcome all of his problems and became acclaimed by many. Despite the fact, that he does not play basketball anymore, he devoted his life to other activities and tries to help others as much as he can. Hopefully, he will be able to continue this for a long time.

2 Everyone should have the opportunity to get affordable, quality health coverage.
3 My family is a praying family, a Christian family.
4 I thank Him every chance I get - on my knees praying.
5 I'm from there. You know, when you grow up with these people and see them every day and then you look at the numbers it was easy; it was a no-brainer. And when Sony took a look, it was a no-brainer to them, too.
6 It's a burden trying to keep a secret. It's hard. It probably takes more out of you trying to hold it and keep it than it does for you to really let it out.
7 Sometimes friends move apart from each other for whatever reason.
8 Research your idea. See if there's a demand. A lot of people have great ideas, but they don't know if there's a need for it. You also have to research your competition.
9 When a woman is frustrated, and it's your wife, you as the husband get that frustration.
10 Athletes don't like to get up early, but it never bothered me.

12 I respect women to the utmost.
13 My work ethic is from sports.
14 My father is my idol, so I always did everything like him. He used to work two jobs and still come home happy every night.
15 My having HIV has no bearing on my business.
16 The real story is that I had unprotected sex. That's that. That's easy.
17 When I grew up, my family, we sat down, all of us to watch 'Good Times,' 'Sanford and Son,' all those shows that were out at that time.
18 I get up 5:30-6 every morning. I'm in the gym. I run a couple miles.
19 I love putting people to work of color.
20 I grew up a Detroit Tigers fan, and now to be an owner of the Dodgers is amazing.
21 I got blessed from my mom. She's the personality; she's the one who smiled, so I took on part of her, and who also wanted to help and save the world. Then I took on part of my dad, who is tough.
22 I do not have bad days. I don't wake up in the morning and think that I'm going to get AIDS. I don't dream bad dreams about it. If I did, I'd be giving in to the negativity.
23 I want to be here for a long time, so I am going to do everything I have to do to be here. And I want to walk my daughter down the aisle and give her away to somebody some day. I want to make sure I am still here to make sure my two young sons become men.
24 I'm the one who started redevelopment in South Los Angeles, not Jan Perry. I did it. I love Jan. She's a good person, and she did a wonderful job with what she did downtown, but in L.A., South L.A., I'm the one.
25 I met wonderful people playing in the NBA. Whether it is the officials, the scorekeepers, all the people who work for the NBA, not just for the Lakers, but I'm talking about just for the league itself.
26 No one plans to get sick or hurt - I certainly didn't - but most people will need medical care at some point in their lives.

30 Magic is who I am on the basketball court. Earvin is who I am.
31 ObamaCare is working. I talk to a lot of CEOs of hospitals. It is working.
32 My dad was my hero. And I got my personality from my mother.
33 Urban America is like a foreign country in a sense.
34 I'm building shopping centers and movie theaters in the inner cities. So that means supplying jobs and letting blacks understand that we have to build our communities back, not looking to anybody else.
35 The gay community has taken care of their issues and problems in terms of HIV/AIDS. They have done an incredible job. We as heterosexuals need to learn from the gay community because they have rallied together. They have sent a lot of information out there. They go get tested.
36 I'm far from being a homosexual.
37 For a long time, I'd work until 10 or 11. When I work, I'm on. I'm 'Magic.' I love it, but it takes a lot out of me.
38 I'm the one who will take chances, not worry about the backlash.
39 I am and will always be a Laker for life.
40 A woman always remembers. Remember that.
41 The audience likes their emotions to be touched. They want to laugh and cry and feel good.
42 You know I was a shy guy and people didn't know that and still don't know it today. I'm sure basketball brought my shyness out because of the fact that you have to do interviews, and that people are always talking to you in terms of the fans and everything.
43 My diet is mostly chicken and fish. I make sure I get a lot of vegetables, a lot of fruit. I am a big fruit man, I am a vegetable man anyway. And I also get a lot of rest. That's the key I may be up early, but I'm in bed early too.
44 The first year was hard for me to deal with. The second year was a little bit easier, but still difficult. It took me five years to get it out of me. It was a difficult moment, a difficult time.
45 My first and only experience in baseball, the coach signed me up; he didn't tell me there's a thing called the curveball. I didn't know that. So the ball's coming at me and I start backing out, and then it broke inside. And the umpire says, 'Strike one!' And I'm saying, 'How is that a strike? It almost hit me!'
46 I make sure I get a lot of vegetables, a lot of fruit. I am a big fruit man; I am a vegetable man, anyway.
47 I don't care who is attacking my son. I still support him; I still love him.
48 I'm the biggest music lover in the world. I mean, I have seen everybody. I went on tour with Michael Jackson and the Jacksons four or five times.
49 All students should have the opportunity to receive their high school diplomas and be fully prepared for college or the workplace.
50 I'm glad that Gov. Scott down in Florida accepted ObamaCare, because it will work.
51 I am a businessman. This is what I do each and every day. I love it. I love coming to work. I never have a bad day.
52 I love to be in the ballpark. I love to just go in and enjoy a great baseball game, a great pitchers' duel.
53 The important thing is this Just because I'm doing well doesn't mean that they're going to do well if they get HIV. A lot of people have died since I have announced. This disease is not going anywhere.
54 Every kid, every minority kid can be so successful if they focus on their education.
55 A lot of black guys always ask me, 'Did Larry Bird really play that good?' I said, 'Larry Bird is so good it's frightening.'
56 I like to take walks in the park by myself, where no one can bother me and I can think.
57 Life doesn't stop because something happens to you.
58 People don't stop eating, and they don't stop drinking coffee.
59 People see me high-fivin' and smiling on the court, and they don't think that's me. But it is. I just want to go out and be myself.
60 I'm a businessman, and what I know is numbers and business.
61 When you are a successful business person, you are only as good as your team. No one can do every deal alone.
62 I have a fond place in my heart for Seattle, so I hope that an NBA team comes back to this great city, this great sports city.
63 I guess when people ask what is the biggest transition to the NBA from college, it is definitely defense and the mental part.
64 I often tell people when you make a mistake, you not only hurt yourself, but you hurt the ones that love you.
65 Young people want you to be real with them.
66 When you think about the NASCAR brand, it resonates everywhere. They have the No. 1 sports brand.
67 I wanted to do two things when I was growing up, about your age. I wanted to play in the NBA, and I wanted to be a businessman after my basketball career was over, and that is what I am doing now.
68 Magic is crazy. He is that crazy wild guy on the basketball court that is very intense and very serious. He is the guy who lives and eats and breathes basketball.
69 I'm not cured, but the HIV is asleep deep in my body.
70 I'm gonna love my son until the end.
71 If somebody says no to you, or if you get cut, Michael Jordan was cut his first year, but he came back and he was the best ever. That is what you have to have. The attitude that I'm going to show everybody, I'm going to work hard to get better and better.
72 I tell you, it's funny because the only time I think about HIV is when I have to take my medicine twice a day.
73 Ask not what your teammates can do for you. Ask what you can do for your teammates.
74 Manhood is taking care of your family and being able to bless other people. Not yourself - but whether you can bless other people.
75 I tell people to look at me and understand that everybody first told me that I couldn't be a 6-foot, 9-inch point guard, and I proved them wrong. Then they told me I couldn't be a businessman and make money in urban America, and I proved them wrong. And they thought I couldn't win all these championships, and I proved them wrong there as well.
76 To me, everything is wonderful. Life is wonderful.
77 I'll hear people say every so often that having HIV must not be so bad - 'Just look at Magic and how well he's doing.'
78 Magic is crazy. He is that crazy wild guy on the basketball court that is very intense and very serious. He is the guy who lives and eats and breathes basketball. Magic is a guy who would stand for nothing but winning and really prepared himself as well as he prepared his team. Earvin is the complete opposite.
79 I look three to five years ahead, not 10 years behind.
80 My father was a great example of a strong and good man and Christian man, and my mother taught all my six sisters how to be young ladies and mothers and how to take care of your family. And so I think they were - they still are - great examples for all of us to their kids and to the world, too.
81 I like things going on in my life. I don't want to be on a beach somewhere just relaxing.
82 I enjoy being the messenger for God in terms of letting people know about HIV and AIDS.
83 You can't get AIDS from a hug or a handshake or a meal with a friend.
84 I motivate others by making sure that they understand to go after their dreams and don't let anyone tell you you can't. If you are motivated enough and put the work in that you can achieve anything in life that you set your mind to.
85 All kids need is a little help, a little hope and somebody who believes in them.
86 I have to tell you, I'm proudest of my life off the court. There will always be great basketball players who bounce that little round ball, but my proudest moments are affecting people's lives, effecting change, being a role model in the community.
87 Just celebrate the life you had, not the life you could've had.
88 Everyone thought I was going to die like a year later, they didn't know. So I helped educate sports, and then the world, that a man living with HIV can play basketball. He's not going to give it to anybody by playing basketball.
89 When you face a crisis, you know who your true friends are.
90 When I first found out I had HIV, I had to find somebody who was living with it, who could help me understand my journey and what I was going to have to deal with day-to-day. I found out that a person named Elizabeth Frazier was living with AIDS at the time, and so I called her up, and she took a meeting with me.
91 The best doctors and medicine in the world can't save you if you don't do what you're supposed to do.
92 I'm at peace with myself. The main thing is not letting people dictate what I do or what I am.
93 God blessed me with two unbelievable parents, and I am just like both of them. I have the smile and charisma of my mother and the big heart of my mom, because she wants to save the world and help the world, so I am just like her.
94 If you're a competitive person, that stays with you. You don't stop. You always look over your shoulder.
95 As an athlete, I understood the value of my health insurance. I knew that in my profession, injuries were common and could happen at any time.
