Measuring basketball IQ now? By the way, Magic Johnson was a piss poor coach and has never had the responsibility of drafting players. He was a minority owner with little say on basketball operations. To judge someone's basketball IQ based on their decisions as an owner/GM is foolish and misguided. Drafting and scouting is an imperfect science and few are very good at it. You also need to put in the work and many around Jordan have suggested he hasn't, which reflects poorly on his work ethic as an owner and not on his basketball IQ.
