Earvin "Magic" Johnson is without a doubt one of basketball's greatest players and one of the greatest winners of his era! This video has some of Magic Johnson's greatest plays and achievements. Follow Magic Johnson as he wins a high school, NCAA, and NBA championship in a four year span, including his legendary performance as a rookie in game 6 of the '80 NBA finals. Follow him in his first historic meeting with Larry Bird in the '79 NCAA championship! Watch Magic run the fast break in showtime fashion from his days with the Lakers making spectacular passes like he can only make! From 1980-1991 (eleven years) Magic has been to the NBA finals nine times and won the championship five times. See how Magic helped revitalize a once dying NBA into one of the most successful franchises it is today. If you are a basketball fan, then this is the film for you!

I have this one since 1994, and I watch it from time to time and I always get the same good feeling. An outstanding video for all the fans and no-necessarily-fans of the NBA and Magic. Extremely well filmed and narrated -voice of Danny Glover-, this is much much more than just a sports video. I have it on "my golden shelf". If you are a lover of the game or just curious about it or about him, you can't miss this one.

Magic Johnson is the greatest to ever play basketball. I haven't seen this video, but I've seen Magic playing and I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy seeing him destroying every defense in the league as he always did.

Magic Johnson Always Showtime DVD vs. VHS June 24 2005
By Karl Ma - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This review is for those who are deciding whether to upgrade from the videotape version to the DVD version. It's not worth it. That was the reason I bought the DVD, I already had the videotape, but was intrigued by the additional footage of Magic's comeback to the NBA in 1996. The only difference between the two is the additional 10 minutes at the end of the DVD. The rest of the program preceding the end of the DVD is the same. The extra scenes on the DVD version goes as followed: Magic announcing his retirement from the NBA in 1991 due to HIV; his 1992 All-Star Game performance in Orlando, Florida; the 1992 Dream Team in the Summer Olympics in Barcelona, Spain; Magic's work within the community with his Magic's Theatres; Magic's comeback to the NBA in 1996; the end. That sounds like a lot of material, but each segment was shown in minimal time, giving only a brief description of each event. I bought this DVD with the intention of watching additional footage of Magic's comeback to the NBA in 1996, but all I saw was a minute or two of interviews and game footage, too short for this DVD to worth buying to replace the videotape. The additional footage on the DVD are too short to enjoy, I felt cheated. It's almost as if NBA Entertainment put together that part at the last minute before release and didn't give enough thought and time into it. If you already own the videotape version, I wouldn't bother buying the DVD version because you are not really missing anything.

Extra footage is worth the price. Jan. 3 2007
By M. R. Lawry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The actual DVD itself is the same old showtime it has always been, which was a bit of a shame. They really could have done with some more and better footage of Magic's return to the game. There really wasn't anything ): However the full games that come with this new version are priceless for any Magic fan especially the All Star game filled with the games greatest players(Minus Larry Bird who was injured) all having a last shot at him and then paying tribute by stopping the game. Truly a fitting tribute to end a Magic career.

Good Retrospective of a Magic Career Feb. 9 2012
By Eric Mayforth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Magic Johnson was the best point guard ever to play the game of basketball. He was a leader and champion at all levels of the sport, winning titles in high school, college, and the NBA. "Always Showtime" is narrated by Danny Glover and looks back at Magic's career, starting in childhood and high school and then moving on to his years at Michigan State and with the Los Angeles Lakers.

The included footage of Johnson's career is stellar, and interspersed throughout the story are comments by family members, coaches, teammates, and rivals. Also included is Johnson's February 1992 jersey retirement ceremony at The Forum.

This DVD set contains three full-length games. No games from the peak of Magic's career in the mid-to-late Eighties are included, but all three are memorable--Johnson's first game as a pro in October 1979; Game 6 of the 1980 NBA Finals, in which Magic led the Lakers to their first of five titles in the decade; and the 1992 NBA All-Star game, which Johnson played three months after he announced he was HIV-positive. Viewers of the 1980 game will be surprised at how much running and fast breaking was done in a Finals game back then, and the '92 All-Star game was memorable for the three 3-pointers Magic hit at the end of the game.

The set would be a solid addition to any DVD collection of NBA history.
