195019 * Magic Johnson

Magic Johnson joined Larry Bird as the two marquis players of the 1980s. They were forever linked after Magic's Spartans defeated Bird's Indiana State team to win the NCAA title in 1979. Magic was later named tournament MVP. Magic was the Number One pick in the draft in 1979 out of Michigan State, leaving as his school's all-time assists leader. Lakers' owner Jack Kent Cooke signed Magic to a 5 year deal worth 500,000 a year, the highest salary of a rookie to date. He had an immediate impact on the league, but Larry Bird won rookie of the year honors. Magic led his Lakers to 5 NBA Championships in 1980, 1982, 1985 and back to back World Championships in 1987 and 1988.
