Magic Johnson Said He is the Second Best Player Ever


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!

    Magic/Kobe tie #1, then reopen the argument when KB24 obtains his 6th.

  • Tim Martindale

    Magic is the second best and it doesn’t have to do with the rings. Magic was the lakers without him no championships. He is the best all around player ever

  • Rodger J Scarbeck

    Best all around player and one of the best that understands how to win and get his teammates to play together and at their best! and doing this from day 1 in High school,College,and in the NBA says volumes that the other players only wish they could have…. Magic was by far the best player ever! LBJ and Jordan have not and could not have done that…. but LBJ is gaining fast on Jordan in the ranks we will see if he has learned anything from being in Miami.
