Magic Johnson

NBA Basketball Star

Magic Johnson was a star player in the ‘Dream Team’ – the U.S. men’s basketball team in the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, Spain.  Did you know he is also dyslexic? From a young age, Magic (whose real first name is Earvin) struggled to read and write, performing poorly in school. He says that this early challenge spurred him on to work harder to be the best “The looks, the stares, the giggles . . . I wanted to show everybody that I could do better and also that I could read.”
