Magic showed us he wasn't scared early in his career, leading the Lakers past the Sixers in the 1980 Finals as a rookie. In Game 6, Magic started at center, played every other position on the floor and dropped 42 points and grabbed 15 boards in a performance for the books. During the 1987 Finals vs. Boston, Johnson averaged 26 points, 8 rebounds, 13 assists and 2 steals. And don't forget the baby skyhook he hit in Game 4 after erasing a 16-point deficit. He led the Lakers to nine Finals appearances and five titles in 11 years.
