Magic Johnson hasn't played for MSU since 1979, but he's still a favorite.

In athletics, players become fan favorites for a multitude of reasons. 

Some of them are logical, some aren't. 

Michigan State Spartans followers have certainly had their favorites, and those athletes were vaulted to campus fame because of who they were, not necessarily what they did on the basketball court. 

Some were stars who cut down nets and captured the university with their personalities, while others were simply role-playing underdogs who fans couldn't wait to see take the floor in the waning minutes of a decisive victory. 

From big men who hardly played to passing dynamos who lit up the floor, the Spartans have suited up several memorable faces that earned a place in the hearts of fans. 

In this slideshow, we'll cover them all.
