Today in Sports History: January 30

On January 30, 1996, in his first game since the 1991 NBA Finals, Magic Johnson led the Lakers to a win against the Golden State Warriors, recording 19 points, eight rebounds and 10 assists. He would go on to play 32 games that season, starting in nine of them, averaging 14.6 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 6.9 assists per game in just 29.9 minutes per game, the lowest minutes per game in his career. Magic would retire for good after the season, ending the legendary career of one of the greatest point guards in NBA history.
