Yesterday, we showed a video of LeBron James' interview with Bill Reiter of FOX Sports where Bron Bron reveals his top three NBA players of all-time. Surprisingly, James listed Magic Johnson on the outside looking in at No. 4. Since that revelation, people have hounded Magic on Twitter to get his reaction and earlier today, he finally responded.
First, Magic gave the nice, friendly, politically correct response.
Lebron is entitled to his opinion, but I still think that he and I have a similar game and that’s why I LOVE to watch him play!— Earvin Magic Johnson (@MagicJohnson) August 22, 2013
Then, right after that, he offered a little jab at King James, as well as Larry Bird and Dr. J.
NBA Championship rings are all that matter; Jordan 6, Me 5, Bird 3, LeBron 2 and Dr. J 1.— Earvin Magic Johnson (@MagicJohnson) August 22, 2013
Ooooh, BURN! Even though LeBron has won back-to-back championships after going ringless for nearly a decade in the league, he's still got a ways to go before he catches up to the guy he left off his top three all-time in the NBA list, Magic. Men lie, women lie, chips don't.
