The whole "Who's Most Like Michael Jordan" discussion can be a tiresome one. Everyone has an opinion, but when an NBA legend like Magic Johnson puts in his two cents, we can't help but hear him out. A couple days ago, Magic posted a series of tweets, saying "I played against Larry & Michael who both had a warrior's mentality," as well as "For the last 17 seasons I've watched Kobe play with that same mentality!" Then, he broke out the following claim:
Laker Nation: Kobe is the closest thing to Michael Jordan that I have ever seen.— Earvin Magic Johnson (@MagicJohnson) April 13, 2013
Of course, there's a caveat to what Magic said. He'll probably see LeBron James have an incredible game during the playoffs and then say that Bron Bron is the closest thing to MJ that he's ever seen. So...there's that.
