WATCH: Magic Johnson Remembers Playing Basketball With Prince

By Sarah Carroll

Magic Johnson is one of the greatest athletes this world has ever known, but that didn’t stop the late and great Prince from talking some major trash on the basketball court!

The five-time NBA champion and three-time MVP stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live last week and shared some hilarious memories of one particularly amusing pick-up game.

“He talked so much trash. He thought he had a real jump shot,” Johnson recalled. “I had to remember it was Prince that I was playing against, so I had back off. But he really thought he could play basketball.”

Prince was also a huge fan of movies and Johnson once opened up his theater in the middle of the night for a private screening for The Purple One and his entourage.

“He called me up and he said, ‘Magic, I want to come to the Theatres … “So we opened it up, my manager and projection guy, he brings this big bus full of people. Jimmy, when they get off, they’re all in pajamas.”
