HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MAMA JOHNSON!

Magic would not have been the man he is today without his mother and he knows that. In a heartfelt Instagram post, the former president of the NBA expressed his gratitude towards the matriarch. He wrote:

"I thank God for each year we are able to spend with you and may he bless you with many more."
