Earlier this week. LeBron James said who his top three players of all-time were in an interview: Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, and Julius “Dr. J” Erving. Who did he leave off of his list? Earvin “Magic” Johnson. Magic had a few things to say about that.

I can definitely agree with Magic putting himself ahead of Dr. J, and even Bird, but if rings matter, why is he better than Bill Russell? Magic has some explaining to do.

What do YOU think? Is Magic right with his comments? How about LeBron? Let us know in the comment section down below!
