LA Lakers legend and NBA Hall of Famer Magic Johnson has continued to remain involved in sports even after retiring from basketball in 1996. However, instead of playing, his involvement in sports is limited to the business end of things, as he is a part-owner of several LA-based sports franchises.

One of the teams that he has a stake in is the Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC), which plays in the Major League Soccer (MLS).

LAFC recently played one of its most important games as it faced the Houston Dynamo in the MLS Conference Finals. LAFC won 2-0 to clinch a spot in the finals where it will face the Columbus Crew.

Magic was in attendance Saturday along with his wife Cookie Johnson. The couple took the time to snap some photos, which Johnson later shared to his Instagram page. He congratulated his team for advancing to the finals for the second year in a row.

Take a look at some of the photos that the LA Lakers legend shared on his Instagram page:
