Following the airing of the most recent episode of Winning Time, we examine Dr. Thomas Day, Magic Johnson’s agent, and what is known about him.
With episode 6, “Momento Mori,” of Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty, the series continued this week. The HBO sports drama traces the Showtime Lakers’ ascent during the 1980s and presents a number of intriguing historical moments.
Jack McKinney’s severe bicycle mishap in the previous episode is continued in episode 6. Along with his contacts with a mysterious Dr. Thomas Day, we also see Magic Johnson reject a lucrative shoe deal with Nike. Who is Dr. Day from Winning Time, though?
Episode 6 of Winning Time Features Dr. Thomas Day.
We first meet Cindy Day in the second episode of Winning Time. She dates Magic and later hires him as a publicist when he relocates to Los Angeles. Dr. Thomas Day, who plays the role of Magic’s manager and financial overseer on the show, is Cindy’s father.
The focus of Episode 6 is Magic’s shoe deal and the offer that the co-founder of Nike Phil Knight made to him. In addition to $100,000 in stock options, Knight offers Johnson $1 for each pair of shoes shipped. But in the end, Magic decides to sign a $100,000 contract with Converse, which is exactly what happened.
We observe how Magic uses Dr. Thomas Day’s assistance as his notoriety and status rise. But when it becomes apparent that Thomas’ daughter Cindy is just concerned with Magic’s popularity, the basketball player cools things up with her. (In the episode, the shrewd father dumps his own daughter in favor of Magic.)
Even though he broke up with Cindy, Magic still consults Dr. Day and makes sure their professional relationship endures. Dr. Day even makes a special flight to Michigan to hand-deliver Magic’s future bride, Cookie, a pair of Lakers tickets.
Dr. Day: Is She Real? This Is What We Do Know
Fans of Winning Time were curious about Dr. Thomas Day after seeing the most recent episode and wanted to know if he was real.
Dr. Thomas Day appears to be fictitious and not a real-life person, despite the fact that this hasn’t been formally established.
How do we understand this? Because Cindy Day isn’t a real person either; rather, it appears that she is a composite of the several women Johnson was associated with at the time.
In the early 1980s, Magic had a brief relationship with Melissa Mitchell; in 1981, she gave birth to his son, Andre Johnson. Another person who claims Magic is the father of her kid, Chauncey, is a woman by the name of Renee Perkins. These women seem to have served as Cindy’s potential role models in Winning Time.
As a result, if Cindy Day is a fake character, it is almost certain that Dr. Thomas Day, her father in the series, has also been created just for the show.
Additionally, there is no evidence of Dr. Thomas Day working with Magic Johnson anywhere. Unfortunately, we are unable to identify the individuals who may have had an impact on his character at the time.
