Magic Johnson Returns to Lakers

At 36, Magic Johnson rejoined the Los Angeles Lakers during the final 32 games of the 1995-96 NBA season. The Lakers went 22-10 in games Johnson played and he averaged 14.6 points, 6.9 assists and 5.7 rebounds per game. Not bad! The Lakers wound up losing to the Houston Rockets in the first round of that season's playoffs. (Photo: Getty Images)
