El Laker del Dia: Pass the Buck on the Left Hand Side

Earvin “Magic” Johnson

Why? Because his impact was transformative and his game remains timeless.

The nucleus of the basketball revolution that was Showtime, Magic led the Lords of Inglewood in their quest to not only win championships but to redefine the concept of “champion”. Keepin his socks high and his Cons tight, Magic’s skill, sportsmanship, creativity, versatility, and class were and will likely remain unparalleled in the sport. As the NBA enters the 2011 Playoffs, I’d like to take a look back at Earv and some of the other iconic figures that helped him to create a Basketball Renaissance in the 1980s.

 As for Buck and and the crew, I’ll let the Chili Peppers say the rest

l.a. lakers, fast break makers

kings of the court shake and bake all takers

back to back is a bad ass fact, a claim that remains… in tact

m-a-g-i-c, see you on the court

buck has come to play his way and his way is to thwart

m-a-g-i-c, magic of the buck

other teams pray for dreams

but he don’t give a fuck

penetrating the lane like a bullet train

comes the magic blood a telepathic brain

knucklehead suckers better duck

when the buck comes through like a truck

scott stops, pops, and drops it in

on his way back gets a little skin

from the hand of a man named a. c. green

slam so hard break your t.v. screen

worthy’s hot with his tomahawk

take it to the hole, make your mamma talk

i hate to burst your bubble but triple double trouble

is coming to your town and he’s going to make rubble

l. a. lakers, fast break makers

kings of the court shake and bake all takers

back to back is a bad ass fact, a claim that remains… in tact

m-a-g-i-c, see you in purple and gold

you can swim, but you won’t get far so you might as well go home

m-a-g-i-c, in buck we trust

re–storing order to the court and justice is a must

lakers are the team that i watch on the telly

cause they got more moves

that a bowl full of jelly

the buck stops here – pops – then cheers

a roar through the forum

that deafens my ears

the one and only known, of his kind

sits in a throne

not for the records that he holds

but for being bald and bold

kareem abdul jabbar

all time great super super star

i hate to burst your bubble but triple double trouble

is coming to your town and he’s going to make rubble

does anybody want some – magic johnson!

does anybody want some – magic johnson!

l. a. lakers, fast break makers

kings of the court shake and bake all takers

back to back is a bad ass fact, a claim that remains… in tact
