After his Los Angeles Lakers were awarded the No. 2 overall pick via the NBA Draft lottery, Magic Johnson was mobbed by a swarm of selfie-seeking fans when leaving the New York Hilton, the hotel where the event was held.
But unlike many executives in his position, this all-time great stopped for a moment to oblige those in search of their photographic piece of history.
Though it’s sad that the selfie has taken over where the autograph once ruled, it’s always nice to see a famous individual do something beyond his or her requirements for the sake of the fans.
Maybe Magic and the Lakers will get lucky and Lonzo Ball will turn out to be more than just his father’s favorite subject.
