Magic Gets Support for MVP, Commentary

February 27, 1993

Larry Stewart (Feb. 19) can find something better to do than critique Magic Johnson's poor diction and his street-and-hoop jargon. Magic does not need to be modulated and homogenized like the rest of these smoothies. What he says and how he says it is what he is about, and that, along with his special personality, is what sets him apart and endears him to the public.

We don't want to change him any more than we do an Ali, or any of the great characters in sport; it's a cautious and colorless enough lot out there as it stands.
