Five Minutes With: Magic Johnson
By Dave D'Alessandro/The Star-Ledger, The Star-Ledger - Seated courtside watching the Nets and Sixers Wednesday night at Wachovia Center was the greatest point guard in NBA history, who was in town for a speaking engagement.

Q. Did you ever think in your lifetime that you’d see a 7-61 team?

MAGIC: No. No. It’s not good for our league,and it’s not good for the Nets. And the worst part of it is they may not even get the first pick. So I’m hoping those lottery balls fall

LAist - Los Angeles, CA, USA - On a mid-summer night every year for two decades, some of the biggest names in basketball and Hollywood were summoned to the hardwood by Magic Johnson and a good cause.

The night kicked off with the celebrity basketball game which included the likes of Scrubs' Donald Faison, boxer, Sugar Shane Mosely, Superman

Relationship marketing is a team effort
Bizjournals.com - Charlotte, NC, USA - Relationship Marketing is vital for business success. We long ago passed the era of the "derby hat and cigar puffing used car salesman" type of mentality. Today's buyers want someone they can trust, rely on and have confidence in to build a relationship and do business.

Due to the fast-changing nature of today's world with technology we also need relationship marketing for our team. You really need to "sell" yourself to your team to have them part of your marketing.
