Magic Johnson falconer

It’s arguably the most anticipated game in Audi MLS Cup Playoffs history, so who better to release the falcon before the first El Trafico showdown between LAFC and the LA Galaxy than one of the biggest names ever in all of sports.

Magic Johnson, who has been known to provide an assist or two in his days playing for the Los Angeles Lakers did the honors Thursday night at Banc of California Stadium.

The legend is an LAFC part-owner.
