You can add Magic Johnson to the list of sports personalities that have toyed with LeBron James’ psyche.
According to Dime Magazine, the former Lakers point guard said,”There will always be great players in basketball. There’s always going to be guys who win championships in the NBA. Except LeBron. Don’t be mad.”
“Everybody’s always asking, ‘who is better between Kobe and LeBron’? I’m like ‘are you kidding me? Kobe five championships, LeBron zero. I love the young man though. I know he’s going to get better this year in the fourth quarter,” added Magic.
There’s no question that LeBron is more physically gifted that Bryant, but when you look at the only stat that matters — championships — Kobe leads 5-0. That pretty much settles that debate.
