If I am biased in this matter, I am definitely biased in Magic's favor.....but have to be honest.....Kobe has beat him out. I NEVER thought I'd see the day that I would say that.
I can't believe anyone who has watched the Lakers since 1980 or earlier
wouldn't say Magic is the best....
I do agree that Magic and Kobe are the two at the top of the list. If Magic
had played 5+ more years, and set the assist record, this choice might
be easier... But they both did their whole careers with the Lakers, both
brought ships, but I still think Magic's role was more important... Kobe
started slow and created some turmoil along the way... Just because
he's the second coming of MJ doesn't push him above Magic IMO.
