Businessman, humanitarian, and Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Famer Earvin “Magic” Johnson will speak at the National Restaurant Association’s annual trade show in May. Johnson will address attendees at the National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show on Sunday, May 18, 2014, at Chicago’s McCormick Place. He will share insights into current issues and events, based on his 30-year journey toward becoming a top brand in Urban America.

"Mr. Johnson…didn’t let where he came from dictate where he could go. He has spent his life overcoming challenges and giving back to his communities. He is the embodiment of the American Dream in general, and the spirit of the restaurant industry in particular,” said Sam Facchini, Convention Chair for NRA Show 2014 and co-owner/co-founder of Metro Pizza.

Magic Johnson grew up in Lansing, MI, and attended Michigan State University, where he led the Spartans to the NCAA Championship in 1979. He was selected by the Los Angeles Lakers as the first overall pick of the 1979 NBA Draft and played for the Lakers for 13 years, during which time he enjoyed five NBA Championships, three MVP awards and 12 All-Star designations. He was part of the 1992 U.S. Olympic Basketball team that won the Gold Medal in Barcelona and returned to the Lakers as coach for the 1994 season.
