Magic Johnson Sculpture in LA – Sports Commission Bronze Statue

The Magic Johnson Sculpture in Los Angeles is captured in a charging position with his fingers guiding his teammates. He assumes his unique ‘no look pass’ stance that successfully misleads his opponents about the direction of his next pass. The final effect on the patina of Magic’s jersey suggests the color of the Lakers’ uniforms while retaining a traditional rich bronze finish. You can see this statue at The Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA.

 

 

Four abstract objects jut out of the base to commemorate four of Magic Johnson’s major professional accomplishments:

  •  Winning the championship at his alma mater, Michigan State University

 

  •  Becoming a legend in the National Basketball Association for many years

 

  •  Playing an important role in the NBA’s All-Star games; and

 

  •  Organizing and playing in the 1992 U.S. Olympic basketball team.
