Johnson led the league in assists per game four times, with 10.5 in 1982-83, 13.1 in 1983-84, 12.6 in 1985-86, and 12.2 in 1986-87, and set a record for most career assists. He also led in steals with 3.43 per game in 1980-81 and 2.67 in 1981-82. Unlike most guards with high assist totals, however, Johnson was also a prolific scorer, four times averaging more than 20 points a game.

Johnson coached the Lakers very briefly during the 1993-94 season, winning only 5 of 18 games, and attempted a comeback with them in 1995, but retired again after playing in only 32 games.

The Magic Johnson Foundation was established in 1991 as a single-disease organization that worked to raise funds for community-based organizations dealing with HIV/AIDS education and prevention programs. In addition to health programs, MJF also provides programs to meet the educational needs of urban residents.  The programs include scholarships and technology grants to individuals and community-based organizations that have demonstrated a commitment to the communities which they serve.
