Magic Johnson's son EJ is BLOWING UP as a reality star on "Rich Kids of Beverly Hills" ... and the NBA legend tells TMZ Sports he couldn't be PROUDER!!!

In fact, Magic says he thinks the shameless E! reality show will springboard EJ into a TV superstar -- and predicts it won't be long before the kid has his own show.

Magic really couldn't be a more supportive parent -- especially after the way he had EJ's back when his son revealed he's gay.

There's more .. Magic also talks about recently buying the L.A. Sparks and also takes another shot at the Lakers. Check out the clip.

Ugh this guy makes my skin crawl. Hes from my home town, went to high school with my sister, and lived around the corner from my family. He always has been and always will be an arrogant jerk! The fact that he had the gall to complain on that commercial about having to go to everett h.s. where the hell is ur michigan pride?!?! We may not have much, but we have that! Man, how i can say more, but ill get off my soapbox now.

Find something to be famous for EJ besides being rich or a celebrities kid or you will never get respect.

Magic has fooled himself. What is he proud of? What makes EJ3 a star? What is his talents?
