 Johnny “Magic” Dadzie


History  

 

The Harlem Rockets were very fortunate in signing Johnny “Magic” Dadzie, who looked quite impressive while trying out for the Connecticut Pride CBA team.  This sensational, flamboyant and exciting young player is exactly what The Rockets were looking for to fill their point guard position.

Brig. Gen. George Mitchell, President/General Manager of The Rockets, was responsible for signing this outstanding blue chipper.  In fact, The Harlem Globetrotters also expressed an interest in this electrifying player.

Dadzie is an outstanding dribbler, passer, penetrator, rebounder and an excellent scorer.  In fact, this all-around player can do anything with the basketball, but make it talk.

Johnny Dadzie, at the age of 17, was selected to be a member of the Zimbabwe National Basketball Team.  Two years later, he received a scholarship to attend Milligan, a small Christian college in northern Tennessee.  At Milligen, he excelled in basketball and academics, and after two years transferred to Southern Illinois University, a Division One school where he started as point guard in his senior year.  There, he averaged 10 points, five assists and five rebounds per game.

After graduating from Southern Illinois, he toured the Ukraine, New Zealand and South Africa with the Athletes in Action Basketball Team.  He later played professionally in Israel, averaging 20 points, nine steals, and eight assists per game.  His last tour with the team took him to Korea and New Zealand during the 1998-1999 season.

Johnny Dadzie, a born again Christian, is an outstanding student of the Bible, and has even had some experience delivering sermons.  After his basketball days are over, Johnny plans to be a full-time minister.

Don’t miss your next opportunity to attend a Harlem Rockets game – Johnny “Magic” Dadzie is worth the price of admission!
