15. Magic Johnson
Years in the Booth: 2001-Present
Networks: ESPN, TNT
We know what you're probably thinking, Magic is nowhere near most of the other vets on this list, but there's one reason he makes it. Magic Johnson states the most obvious basketball facts ever known to man every time he speaks. And if you think about that before you listen to him, it makes it ten times as entertaining. Plus, he just has that Magic voice. The inflections make it seem like he's telling the most interesting story ever and his child like excitement makes you want him to be right.
