Born in Lansing Michigan Magic Johnson chose to play his college ball close to home rather than the top-ranked colleges that wanted him like Indiana & UCLA. After narrowly losing in the Elite 8 during the 1978 NCAA Tournament Johnson led a hungry Michigan State team back to the tourney in 1979. Facing Larry Birds Indiana State squad in the finals in what was the most-watched college basketball of all time Johnsons Spartans were victorious 75-64. Johnson was voted Most Outstanding Player of the Final Four for his play.
