Another Side of Magic Johnson

FOX19's Tricia Macke went one on one with NBA Legend Earvin "Magic" Johnson Jr. 

Magic Johnson is the former point guard of the Los Angeles Lakers and won so many awards in his basketball career, it's impossible to mention them all. Plus, there's one milestone that Magic really wanted to achieve, and it'll bring a smile to your face and surprise you.

He's very open and honest when it comes to his choices - How hard work and determination have lead to his huge successes on the basketball court. He's also a big proponent of giving back, freely offering up scholarships to kids. He speaks warmly to kids, especially inner city kids he can relate to.

Magic was in Cincinnati as a guest of Mercy Health and Catholic Health Partners.

He also isn't shy about talking about his HIV status, and how it is imperative to take your medications.

And finally, Magic doesn't shy away from talking smack about his former nemesis, Larry Bird!
