MAGIC SHOW ON "TODAY"
Published November 3, 1994
MAGIC JOHNSON was a guest on NBC's "Today Show." Johnson, who owns 5% of the Lakers talked of the rookie salary cap. Johnson: "I want the players to get as much as they can get. ... If you deserve the money and you earned it. Here it is." But he was critical of the high-priced demands of rookie. On Glenn Robinson's demands: "No way, the franchise of Milwaukee is worth only $90 million. ... Nobody is worth a $100 million." Johnson jokingly said, however, that he, Michael Jordan and Larry Bird would be worth that much if they were still playing Magic. More seriously, Johnson said Jordan would have been the first $100M player if he had stayed in the NBA (NBC, 11/3).
