The MaJic Touch: Daryl Dorsey continues to shine - Feb 8, 2018

MaJic Dorsey
GHASSANBASKET | JANUARY 29, 2018

Few athletes are truly unique, changing the way their sport is played with their singular skills. Daryl "Magic" Dorsey is one of them.

Just how good a basketball player is Dorsey? So good, perhaps, that future generations of hoop fans may see that he was the modern day point guard 10 years ago -- just to watch MaJic play in person instead of watching him only on highlight reels is a site to see.

If we used NBA comparisons he is what Jason Williams was to the 2000s, what Rafer Alston was for the world of streetball.

Still, MaJic Dorsey (185-PG, college: S.Indiana, agency: 3Eye) was even more than a revolutionary player, who, at 6-foot-1, became an international icon.

Whether it was a behind-the-back pass in Latin America, a half-court swish at the buzzer in the NBA G-League or a smile that illuminated an arena, everyone who saw Dorsey play took with them an indelible memory of what they had witnessed. From the moment he stepped onto the court, people pondered: How could a man so small score the basketball the way he did while dissing out 10 assists? It was MaJic.

Dorsey accomplished virtually everything a player could dream of during his 13-year professional career, all of which was spent in over 15 countries (NBA G-League, Mexico, Venezuela, Ecuador, Cyprus, China, Taiwan, Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Colombia, Egypt, Qatar and now Morocco). He was a member of five championship teams. He won the Most Valuable Player Award and the Finals MVP Award three times each. He was a 12-time All-Star and a nine-time member of the Eurobasket.com All-Import Team. He set the all-time career assists record in Mexico, a mark he later relinquished his best effort in 2012 where he averaged a league best 31.0 points per game along with 10.0 assists per game (Aguilas Rojas de San Juan). He won a bronze medal with the USA National Select Team at the 2015 FIBA Jones Cup in Taipei.

Dorsey did all of this while maintaining a childlike enthusiasm born of a pure love of sport and competition. Beyond all the money, success and fame, Majic was just happy to be playing basketball.

If there was one aspect of Dorsey's game that awed people the most, it was his brilliant passing skills. He dazzled fans and dumbfounded opponents with no-look passes off the fastbreak, pinpoint alley-oops from halfcourt, spinning feeds and overhand bullets under the basket through triple teams. When defenders expected him to pass, he shot. When they expected him to shoot, he passed. And shoot he would!!!!!!!!

Said former NBA scout Harold Ellis: "There have been times when he has thrown passes and I wasn't sure where he was going. Then one of our guys catches the ball and scores, and I run back up the floor convinced that he must've thrown it through somebody." He deserved a shot in the league training camp.

Summer of 2007 MaJic Dorsey would see all of his dreams start to come true as he was invited to several NBA mini camps. His best shot came from the LA Clippers where he made it to the final cut before joining NBA G-League affiliate Anaheim Arsenal. In 38 games Dorsey averaged an impressive 12 points, 3 rebounds and 5 assists per game.

Dorsey was first called "MaJic" when he was a star at Dunbar High School. He was given the nickname by a sports writer who had just seen the 15-year-old prepster notch 36 points in a game as a sophomore. The two sport star was rated as the number one football player in his class. Off the field issues would cost Dorsey his life as he was charged with murder. He was later released and given a fresh start at life. "To me it was a new start", said Dorsey. I took life for granted and never appreciated what God was doing for me. So now I am grateful for everyday I get to play this game. As a senior, Dorsey led Gwynn Lake Prep (Florida) to a 27-1 record and the state title while averaging 35.8 points and 6.8 assists.

Dorsey wanted to attend college close to his new found home in Florida, so he enrolled at Brevard CC in Florida. He put up impressive numbers in two seasons (25.0 ppg, 5.9 rpg, 8.4 apg), leading the NJCAA in scoring as a sophomore. As an All-America sophomore Dorsey was being recruited by Florida & Florida State University. He shocked the world skipping his final two years in the NCAA to go professional. And boy was it a good choice.

Majic Dorsey is currently playing in Morocco for Fath US de Rabat under head coach Outail Aouij . "Coach Aouil has been great for me", said Majic. He is by far one of the best coaches and he pushes me to be great everyday.

Life isn't about how you start, its about how you finish. MaJic Dorsey went from almost losing life to a 13 year professional career. From the Eurobasket family we commend your hard work and professionalism.
