NO hangtime no crossover no fadeway no fakeshots no inteligence simply no ART just run and gun
Smaller player like N8 can easly superpass Lebron Nate can jump higher than Lebron
if some1 dont understand it simply just watch his game 6 vs Jazz in 1998 especially what he did to Russel or game 1 vs Blazers 1992
Thats why even MJ is taking Kobe over Lebron Kobe do same things as MJ
You know when Magic played the Lakers had a moniker style of play...it was called...."SHOWTIME"
What's the Heat style of play?
Once again Magic never choked away a series in the fashion Lebron has vs Celtics right before he left to South Beach and then got throughly outplayed by Dirk in the Finals. Winning 2 chips does not catapult you to G.O.A.T. status.
I also wonder what Magic would do playing next to Wade and Bosh because Lebron didn't accomplish much until he left Cleveland. He couldn't even beat the Dwight Howard led Magic. I wonder how many other good/great players would have accomplished had they had a chance to gimmick up the playing field, by super power colluding?

Oh and Magic has 5 titles
beat Doc twice(Prime)
beat Bird twice(Prime)
beat Isiah once(Prime)
And when looking those players he beat 3 of them make most fans Top 20 All Time G.O.A.T. list. He went to 3 more Finals totaling 8 and lost to Isiah/Bird/Jordan still G.O.A.T.S.
Now tell me who has Lebron beat in the Finals Duncan(Past Prime) and Durant.....1 more than likely Top 10 G.O.A.T. the other underdetermined.

I hate LeBron but he is better then magic. His vision is on par. He's a way better defender, he's stronger faster his offense is way better.... Yeah magic had 42 at c but he gave up close to the same amount in that game. Bron over magic is a no question

LeBron is never coming here. Ever.
Also this is not close to prime Wade that he's playing with. Wade and Bosh were looking more like liabilities than assets at times this year and he carried them to the title.
Magic didn't have to collude because his team was stacked and better than any team Lebron has ever played with.
Lebron is bigger, stronger, faster, more athletic, better shooter, way better defender, better rebounder, better shot blocker, better scorer, and almost as good as a passer and we still haven't seen the best of him.
Was Kevin Johnson better than Steve Nash?
Is Chris Paul better than Isiah Thomas?
Is Russell WestBrook better than Gary Payton?
Is Derrick Rose better than Jason Kidd?
Was Shawn Kemp better than Kevin Mchale?
Is Vince Carter better than Paul Pierce?
Is Tony Parker better than John Stockton?
Will Blake Griffin be better than Karl Malone?
Is Chris Webber better than Dirk?
Is Garnett better than Tim Duncan?
You see what I did there right? Which shows you I'm not stuck in any particular era
The very last part of your sentence is subjective...until we see the best of Lebron he's not better than Magic overall. Not many in the NBA family would rank Lebron ahead of Magic as an All-Time great. Now if Lebron goes on to be what many think he will sure give him that crown but as of now he's still not there.

CP3 was playing with Tyson during Hornets time n they were shut down by Spurs easly.
he is called as king of traveling and most know as fouls complaining mentioned by Rodman so some1 who wana compare him or talk about as the best of the best is very wrong
i saw some comment that Lebron is not better player than MELO Lebron was just playing in better teams and have/had allways 2nd allstar scorer in Cleveland and now Miami.
Cavs was in finals in 2007 Knicks since 99 just 2 playoffs apperances 2 sweeps
LeBron already played 10 NBA seasons compared to Magic's 13, and LeBron is only 28 years old.
LeBron has 4 MVPs in 10 seasons
Johnson has 3 MVPs in 13 seasons
LeBron has 5 all defensive first teams.
Magic Johnson has 0.
LeBron already scored 21,081 points in his NBA career.
Magic scored 17,707...so how hasn't LeBron passed him?
LeBron's career isn't even over, and he has about 5-6 more prime years left.
Most likely, LeBron will pass Magic in the all time assist list and LeBron doesn't even dominate the ball like Magic did.
Magic is an all time great, but LeBron is just better.
the struggle? LeBron took the Cavs to the Finals and before LeBron they were one of the worst teams in NBA history.
What struggle is there in Los Angeles playing next to James Worthy, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Kurt Rambis, A.C. Green, Michael Cooper and Bryon Scott? The best player LeBron played with pre-Miami was probably Varejao.
and Magic Johnson is 6"8 and 210lbs.
He would never play center in today's NBA, not even on a Mike D'Antoni team.
LeBron physically would be the biggest guy in the 80s standing at 6"8 and 260 lbs. Even when Patrick Ewing was drafted he was only 240 lbs.
Don't bring up Magic playing center like it matter, the Showtime Lakers were loaded with enough big men and bangers like Rambis, AC Green and Worthy grabbing rebounds left and right. LeBron would body Johnson.
LeBron's rebounders consist of Chris Anderson, Chris Bosh and Joel Anthony, with Udonis Haslem...please. Miami's supporting cast isn't even physically intimidating.
They dwell off of LeBron's talents and get open for 3 with guys like Allen, Battier and Miller landing big shots come playoff time.
It wasn't well researched I mean what did he actually do in his post? He posted overall pt differential compared to seasons played, MVP's, AD Teams.
Let's keep it real MVP honors do not mean the same these days as they did back in the day. Hence you have fans still griping over Steve Nash's and Derrick Rose's Top Honors.
Really how hard was that to accomplish.....keep glossing over I've posted more body of work facts
- Magic went to 8 Finals with many different squads...
- Magic has more Finals MVPs than LeTraveler...
- Magic has more Chips(5) than Letraveler
- Magic has more career assist(10k almost double) then Letraveler
- Magic has an NCAA Championship Letravel doesn't
- Magic Defeated multiple All-Time Greats during their Prime in Finals, Letraveler hasn't
- Magic has a better overall FG% than Letraveler
- Magic's career was cut short because of the HIV disease, otherwise his accumulative numbers would be better
- Magic Won a Chip as a Rookie and was MVP of that Finals, Letraveler hasn't and never will
- Magic revolutionized the way the point guard position was played decades to follow, patterned much by Letraveler
- Magic never lost a Gold Medal opportunity in the Olympics, unlike Letraveler
- Magic played in a hand checking era LeTraveler hasn't
- Magic never choked away a playoff series, 1 with Elbow Gate and and another being afraid to shoot wanting a teammate to save him in (Wade)
But if you want to idiotically henpeck stats I can do the same and say Karl Malone is better than Duncan based on total pts scored and Tim is light yrs behind Malone in scoring. They both won MVP 2 times in their career. But wait I bet you'll say Tim is better because he has rings and Malone doesn't and Tim has played in more Finals?
Well that would destroy the Magic vs LeTravel agenda oriented posting from you
