I’ll admit my bias up front — Magic Johnson is my favorite player of all time. We talk all the time about the next Jordan or the next Bird (although there will never be anyone like them), but we can’t really talk about the next Magic because 6’9″ point guards with impossible court vision do not exist. Magic was one of a kind.
We should talk about his accomplishments off the court, those will be his greatest legacy, but for us hoop fans we should not forget just how great a basketball player he was. So via my man Darius at Forum Blue & Gold, I give you maybe the best Magic compilation ever.
