    dear tony, can you lose yr magic juice? 

    johnson

    no.

    anything magic is a gift from above that we have zero control over.

    not that control is not an illusion

    but we have less control over gifts.

    sometimes you get a tie

    sometimes you get a sweater

    and sometimes you get the exact same thing youve always wanted.

    more attention should be made about

    how will i use this incredible tool i hope to one day have

    and will it help the most amount of people?

    instead of omg i want i want.

    i have been in situations where i was waiting and waiting for the ball

    and then i dropped it.

    fortunately there were few spectators.

    but still.

    and others i got it

    and not only did the right thing

    but added a little soul.

    those things all were boosted by magic from above

    but i was even ready for that.

    dear reader you will never lose your magic juice

    but sometimes like in exodus theres gonna be feast

    and theres gonna be famine.

    its great to be prepared for both.

    but today i heard there were blackouts all over town because of the heat.

    so i say, hey baby, lets make sure we know where all the flashlights and candles are

    she said i threw out all your candles.

    and i looked around and

    she wasnt lying.

    sure glad we had that discussion tonight

    and not in the middle of a blackout.

    you can’t say you beat LA in 7 games unless you lose 3 first 

    i was sick yesterday. from the wind? from the stress of the game?

    from the lady this weekend who sat behind me coughing as i snapchatted our panels?

    who knows. all i knows is i lazed around yesterday not thinking of nothing and i feel better today.

    you know whats weird about life? no matter how old you get there will always be someone who thinks they know about what you know better than you.

    look no further than no drama obama.

    my man took us from the depths of a recession into so much prosperity that even after he is gone the stock market is booming and unemployment is lower and lower.

    but do people run around saying OMG OBAMA THANK YOU?

    no. in fact they LET all the fakers and liars say the opposite.

    so if that happens to someone who so clearly turned the ship around, imagine what theyre saying ’bout you willis?

    and trust me, i know i throw a lot of curveballs. i dress humbly the way the bible says. i live humbly as the gospel preaches. but i work hard, i skate fast, and i leave behind a path of smiles and laughter.

    meanwhile those who leave in their wake heartache, confusion and misery are held higher because they wear a dress shirt.

    i wore a dress shirt at the LA Times and that didn’t keep me from getting canned even after i took top of the ticket from a half million to a million to two million to three million month after month.

    if people dont want you around theyre not gonna care what you do to the scoreboard. theyre gonna make up lies. theyre gonna say that wasnt really a recession theyre gonna say those numbers are fake news theyre gonna say

    republicans woulda turned it around faster.

    so heres the good news. you do move the needle. you do make things better. you are the i in team.

    you are the magic in the makeup

    so stop making up negativity.

    you can live through anything if Magic made it 

    johnson

    saw that Magic Johnson special on ESPN

    nearly made me cry

    made me choke up a bit.

    i highly recommend it if you havent seen it.

    doesnt even matter if you dont care about sports or basketball

    magic transcended all of that. he was a star in a city that has all the best stars.

    im still amazed that while Eazy-E and all those others died of AIDS,

    the Lord wanted Magic to stick around and show us that anything is possible

    even beating something that we once thought was unbeatable.

    God bless life. God bless science. God bless hope.
