“He talked so much trash. He thought he had a real jump shot,” Johnson recalled. “I had to remember it was Prince that I was playing against, so I had back off. But he really thought he could play basketball.”

“He called me up and he said, ‘Magic, I want to come to the Theatres … “So we opened it up, my manager and projection guy, he brings this big bus full of people. Jimmy, when they get off, they’re all in pajamas.”
