Some guides say that you have to pick the correct takeovers to make a replica build work, in our experience that isn’t the case so pick whatever ones you’d prefer. It is possible this changes based on the console (i.e current gen vs. next gen).

This is all the information you need to unlock the Magic Johnson replica build. Upon completing the build you will be rewarded with an easter egg showing your player has shades of “magic”.

Play Style

I hope you like passing because Johnson’s build is custom made to spray the ball to your teammates all game long. Much like the real “magic” you can chip in with scoring smart shots even if you won’t be an unstoppable shooting machine in the modern NBA. Now head out there and recreate the beauty of the showtime Lakers.
