"I've had four opportunities, and I turned them all down... I just couldn't do it. I'm a Laker. I love the Lakers." - Earvin "Magic" Johnson on Ep. 57 of the "Club Shay Shay" podcast

HBO's new show Winning Time: The Rise of the Laker Dynasty is a big hit, but don't count Earvin "Magic" Johnson as one of them. 

Earvin "Magic" Johnson has been successful on the basketball court and in business. But the 5x NBA champ struggled with his son EJ's homosexuality, and he spoke with "Variety" on how his relationship with E.J. eventually transformed into one of acceptance. But the 62-year-old had to unpackage his own baggage first.

Apple TV+ is giving Los Angeles Lakers fans an in-depth look at the life of one of the greatest basketball players ever, Earvin "Magic" Johnson, with its latest sports documentary.
