VIDEO: Magic Johnson on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno


Earlier this week, Magic Johnson appeared on The Jay Leno Show, and of course, the five-time NBA champion talked about the Lakers.

Magic’s assessment of the Lakers next season seemed fair – he basically said that the purple and gold will only go as far as Kobe Bryant takes them, so it’s vital that he’s healthy – and he also doesn’t expect Kobe to be ready to go for opening night.

“Laker fans,” Magic said, “we’ve just got to pray.”
