I'm so sick of Magic as a mouthpiece.
1) He says rings are all that matters, and yes, I understand that in his tweet, he's talking about JUST those in the discussion...but prior to all of this, he has said multiple times that MJ is the greatest player to ever play the game. I agree that Jordan is, but that's contradicting his statement. Regardless of who's in the discussion, making a statement like that basically means he believes Bill Russell is the greatest...which he does not.
2) LeBron is more Magic than Mike, in regards to style...but he has separated himself from both over the years. He doesn't push the break to dish an assist...he pushes to finish it. He is an outstanding help defender. He will hold the ball in ISO, pull up and take any shot. He has more range than Magic. He looks to score almost twice as often. He may facilitate, but they don't even play the same natural positions.
3) Magic has to get off LBJ's jockstrap. Sometimes, the way he words his statements, he makes it sound like he's sticking LeBron in the top five NBA players of all time, as he continues to say he and James are very comparable. There was a segment on one of the halftime shows last season where Magic talked about how much he loved watching LeBron play in the post, then he did this weird thing where he seemed to get a chill from it...and it's just so ridiculously scripted, it seems, that it makes me want to turn off my television.
