“I was at my computer doing some work, and then I had some orders come in online for the actual t-shirt...About 47 minutes into the show, I see the character who plays Magic Johnson wearing the t-shirt.” Helton told media partner WILX-TV 10. 

Helton, took to his companies Facebook page, not too long after his shirt made its debut on the HBO series.
