I was there", like some old coot lol.. Have you heard of ESPN Classic?? The internet?? Yes, I've actually sat and watched many games from the past, including old Lakers games. I'm a student of the game. You'd be surprised how much basketball I've watched. Stop w that nonsense..

    Comparing the pieces those Lakers teams had to that of the Bulls is silly. The Lakers had four big time players: Magic, Kareem, Worthy. You put Rambis up on the poll, but Byron Scott was better than him. One year they had Mc Adoo coming off the bench. They had some dominant squads and overall better teams than the Bulls.
    OK dude, watching a few espn classics and some clips on youtube doesn't qualify as really experiencing the games. So, don't try to compare the 2... It's like when I hear people older than me talk about Julius Erving, Chamberlain, Bill Russell... Yeah, sure I have seen some classic games on TV but nothing like when you hear from the people there talk about an ordinary game that Russell scored just a few points but dominated the paint....
    I saw Magic in the garden!!! I saw those no look passes and his trademark scoop layup in person. Just like I saw Jordan dominate at the Garden... Same with Larry Bird... The problem with guys like you is that you play a video game and think you understand the game... Yeah sure, your team does great on NBA 2k11...
    You guys confuse the most marketable guy in the history of the NBA with guys that were greatest with out the hype. Just remember years ago the game was much more physical... Even before Magic's time!
    Would you put Jordan above Wilt Chamberlain? The guy scored 100 points on his own.... 100.... That is insane! Chamberlain dominated like no other player in the HISTORY OF THE NBA!!! I never saw him play but from what I did see on video, the stats and listening to people that saw him play in person... By far the most dominate person ever... You cling onto Jordan because he is within your era but guys like Elgin Baylor, Oscar Robertson, Larry Bird were all dominate players that changed the game... I never saw George Mikan play but from what I understand he dominated the game...
    But, I speak from what I have seen with my own eyes.... I will say it again; Magic Johnson was the greatest!

    Also, apparently you didn't see Horace Grant play because if you did you would know just how great of a player he was, from Chicago and with Orlando.... I love STAT and glad he's on my team but he is not atthe level of a LaBron James, Kevin Durant or Dwayne Wade... Not to mention Karl Malone, James Worthy.... He is great for todays game that the rules have changed over the years to open up scoring... 25/30 years ago... STAT would be driving down the lane and Bill Lambeer would of step out hip checked him into the next century... Just ask Scottie Pippen about Anthony Mason's right hooks!
