Magic Johnson has been characterized as one of those retired players that generates controversy, and on this occasion, he joined the GOAT debate, which Michael Jordan and LeBron James have been disputing for years, and although the current forward of the Los Angeles Lakers has incredible records with his active career, he seems not to be Magic’s favorite.

In an interview with NBAlive.com, Magic emphasized that both characters have different mindsets. “Bron came more to the Los Angeles Lakers for me, he has my respect and he knows it, but it would be great that his 4 rings were from Cleveland, from the team that selected him in the draft,” said the former player.
“I’m not saying I’m not happy that he’s a Laker, but it was great to give 4 championships to whoever chose you, Jordan did it differently, I even felt jealousy when he came back from his first retirement, Lakers offered him a super contract that he never offered me me, and he told management my home is the Chicago Bulls, it’s not about money, it’s about loyalty.”

Jordan’s greatness seems to exceed the limits of any theory, for Johnson it meant the understanding of his greatness in the world of basketball and the legacy that “His Majesty” left forever.
In this sense, Magic preferred Jordan, who was a unique player and undisputed winner, and despite the fact that LeBron has left memorable moments, for the former Laker, it does not compare to what MJ did.
