Young kids now a days don't appreciate what real legends is all about. They grew up watching Jordan and thats all they know about. If a person can't dunk over people and make people say "dayam!" i guess they are not good. Its a different generations of fans. So I understand why he doesn't think Magic is that great.
I did noticed on your avatar that you just a fan since 1989. That is the very tail end of Magic's career. Probably catch the 92 all star game which to me is still the best all star game of all time. I was only 5 when I started to become a lakers fan so I had to watch all the old videos of magic to appreciate and remember how great he was. Watch him live once when I was 7 years old in 87.
Nah ...its because he wasn't a complete player.
