*During a visit to “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Thursday, Magic Johnson talked about playing basketball with Prince, who, according to the Lakers legend, could talk a better game than he played.
“He talked so much trash – he thought he had a real jump shot,” Johnson said. “I had to remember it was Prince that I was playing against, so I had back off. But he really thought he could play basketball.”
Magic also recalled the first time Prince wanted him to arrange a private screening for him and some friends at his Magic Johnson Theaters.
“He called me up and he said, ‘Magic, I want to come to the Theatres,'” Johnson laughed. “‘OK, what time do you want to come?’ ‘2 a.m.’ I said, ‘Prince, we’re closed at 2 a.m., but OK, I’ll open it for you.’ So we opened it up, my manager and projection guy, he brings this big bus full of people. Jimmy, when they get off, they’re all in pajamas.”
