Video: Magic Johnson “I’m The Biggest Lakers Fan.”

Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters catches Earvin “Magic” Johnson off guard when she let’s him in on a little secret: current Lakers player Darius Johnson-Odom was actually named after the legend.

“What a compliment. Wow it blows me away….I’ve got to find Darius in there and say hello.”

Magic Gives High 5 to Serena Winters

Magic continues to talk about his love for the Lakers organization. If you ask us, he sounds almost as giddy as our Lakers Nation fans!

“I tell you I’m the biggest fan. I can’t wait for the Laker season, I’ve been going crazy ever since they made the trade for Steve Nash and Dwight Howard.”

When asked about Mychal Thompson claiming his looks over Magic, the Hall of Famer even jokes around with our Lakers Nation reporter.

“He can have the looks, I’ll take the money.”

If you ask us Magic, you’ve got both. Check out our exclusive interview with Magic Johnson below.
