When it comes to the NBA GOAT discussion, Michael Jordan and LeBron James are always in the thick of it, and justifiably so. Jordan truthers will give M.J. the nod, noting his 6-0 record in the NBA Finals. James believers will counter with The King’s longevity and consistency. Everybody can agree, however, that Jordan and James are two of the most talented, culturally-relevant athletes in professional sports history, for their work both on and off the court. Earvin “Magic” Johnson, a legendary Los Angeles Lakers star, is considered one of the best players and playmakers in NBA history and credited with redefining the point guard role. Renowned for his dazzling skillset, “Showtime” style, ability to play all five positions and larger than life persona. Magic’s career accolades include 5x NBA champion, 3x NBA MVP, 12x All Star, 9x NBA All-First team, and 2x Hall of Fame inductee.
