2nd greatest lol. I'm not going to make a pointless argument with the sentiment - just not worth it, smh.
You aren't going to make a pointless argument because it's not in your favor, which deems it pointless for the both of us. Magic has nothing over Kobe, aside from passing the ball and rebounding. He's not a better scorer (not even close), not a better defender (not even close), not a better shooter (not even close), doesn't have the Lakers records that Kobe does (which includes the steals record), played in an era where scoring was extremely high and defense was actually rated lower than it was in the Kobe era (which is a FACT, easy to prove), and instead of having just Shaq, or just Gasol and Odom, on his championship teams...he had Kareem, Worthy, Cooper, Scott, Green, Nixon, Wilkes, McAdoo...six of those eight being all-stars, Cooper being a former DPOY in 1987.
Please don't bother, dude. Once Kobe got his fifth ring, he shook off Magic by being the better overall player. Magic took a backseat, and up until that night in June 2010, that's all he had on Kobe anyway.
