No, this isn’t ESPN attempting to re-create the mystique that was “The Decision.” It’s actually something far greater and a program every person – regardless of sports affinity – should consider viewing. Magic Johnson and ESPN Films are set to air “The Announcement” on Sunday, March 11, at 9 EST.

I’ll be watching from an educational standpoint seeing as how yours truly was only five at the time. For those old enough to remember what the pulse of basketball, but more so the country, was immediately following the revelation, use this a time machine. Either way, tune in. This has the makings to be something we can all learn from.
