Earvin “Magic” Johnson has joined ESPN as an NBA studio analyst and will mainly work with Stuart Scott, Mike Wilbon and Jon Barry on ABC's GMC NBA Countdown. He will provide analysis on Christmas Day – when ABC and ESPN combine to showcase an NBA tripleheader (beginning at 12 p.m. ET on ESPN) – and contribute to the networks' post-season studio coverage. The announcement was made by Norby Williamson, executive vice president, production.

“Magic has always been one of the most accomplished people in every field he has endeavored. He was an incomparable player and has become one of the best NBA analysts in the business. His unique insights, perspective and personality will be the perfect complement to Stuart (Scott), Mike (Wilbon) and Jon (Barry),” said Williamson.

“I am thrilled to be able to be a part of ESPN, where I will work with a great team and cover all the big NBA events,” said Johnson. “Christmas can’t come soon enough for me.”

They don't need him. Kenny, Chuck and EJ are the best team ever.

Now ESPN will try to force their LeBron love to Magic, I wonder if Magic will jump on the wagon...

NOOOOO! TNT was so good with Chuck and Magic, but this will help ESPN/ABC. They don't even come close in comparison to TNT, and well Magic will help them out. But I hope he shuts them up when all the ESPN guys continue to have their wet dreams about the Cavs and LeBron.

Oh no. This sucks. I love Magic, and want to watch him, but that Charles/Ernie/Kenney combo was sooo good. Oh well, I just watch the TNT postgame because of how funny it is.

Now i know why the other nets fan doesn't like him either. Get over that comment, you guys are the only ones who seem to have a problem with it. Everyone else agrees.

honestly, i never really cared much for magic. that doesnt mean that he wasnt acceptable or that i was against him, but he is replaceable. chuck definately isnt. and kenny is good so they are fine if you ask me

magic wasn't that important in my opinion. the TNT crew is mostly entertaining, Magic didn't do much anyways. I love him, but he wasn't clicking with Chuck, Kenny, and ernie.
