Earvin “Magic” Johnson, Jr. is an American former basketball player.
He called Homer to congratulate him on averting a nuclear disaster. Homer asked him what if people think someone is a hero, but he was really just lucky. Magic replied that people like that are soon exposed as the frauds they are. Later at the basketball game, Magic had the ball, but slipped. The ball flew out of his hands, hit the referee and ended up in the basket. Magic then said that he "pulled a Homer".
