Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was in his 11th season and 32-years-old when Magic Johnson joined the Lakers.

Johnson won three Finals MVP Awards while Abdul-Jabbar won one of his own. The duo would play together from 1979 to 1989, when Abdul-Jabbar retired and two years before Magic would step away from the game because of his HIV diagnosis.
