One of the Los Angeles Lakers showtime era legends was no other than Earvin "Magic" Johnson, and he took to Twitter to write about the eventful night alongside the basketball royalty cast.

"There were a lot of Laker greats and basketball royalty in the building for the game, including Byron Scott, Michael Cooper, Robert Horry, Pau Gasol, Lakers Head Coach Darvin Ham, USC women's basketball head coach Dawn Staley, and Jim Jackson. Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass and tennis great and Hall of Famer Billie Jean King came to support our Sparks, and the most decorated American track-and-field athlete in Olympic history, Allyson Felix, was also in the building!" Wrote Magic.
