Magic Johnson, Lakers teammates bet AC Green he couldn't remain a virgin in the NBA: Book excerpt
Magic Johnson use to throw "Get Busy" parties in the 80's
On Magic Johnson's house parties, to illustrate the culture that surrounded the team Green entered: Johnson fancied himself not merely an entertainer, but a maestro. "If you ever die and go to heaven, you want heaven to be Magic's house parties," said Frank Brickowski, a future Lakers teammate. "He would have the finest girls in L.A. there. The absolute finest.
