The first trailer for the upcoming four-part docuseries They Call Me Magic follows the career of Earvin “Magic” Johnson on and off the court.
The first trailer for Earvin “Magic” Johnson’s long-awaited docuseries They call me magic is here. The NBA legend spent thirteen seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers, where Johnson helped win the NBA Championship and Finals Most Valuable Player award just during his rookie season. The five-time NBA champion announced in 1991 that he had contracted the HIV virus, which catapulted the star into an activist role both on and off the court before officially leaving the NBA in 1996.
The docuseries will see interviews with famous Johnson rival Larry Bird, as well as Michael Jordan, Shaquille O’Neil, Dwayne Wade, Jerry West, Cookie Johnson, EJ Johnson, Snoop Dogg, Samuel L. Jackson, LL Cool J, the President Barack Obama, Fred Stabley Jr., Michael Wilbon and many more. With the hype around HBO’s latest scripted series Buying Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty, which focuses on Johnson and the 1980s Lakers, an April 22 release date for Apple TV+ They call me magic will be perfectly timed for fans of one of the greatest sports dynasties the world has ever known.
