Kareem played with Magic when Kareem was past his prime and not the same player.

Bullshyt. Kareem was still top 5 during several of their championships and better than Magic at least during their first.

Magic and Kareem no longer top 5!

Kareem won FMVP at the age of 37 among other things.

Lebron has won a grand total of


0 finals games.


Don't compare a mere all star to the GOAT.

So how come these threads didn't pop up all those years Kobe was getting discredited for winning with Shaq?

Ahhh.... I love double-standards/hypocrisy...

F*ck off troll. Either come with some knowledge or be ignored.

Kareem and Magic no longer top 5 all time cause they played together.

Can't have it both ways.

Kareem was past his prime and please, it's not like Magic decided to join Bird and Jordan.

Magic was not playing at the level of a top 10 player all time for the first 4-5 years. Kareem wasn't playing at the level for his last 4-5. They didn't call each other up and decide to combine together in their PRIMES along with another guy who is the best at his position to chase rings. This is an unprecedented move.

A. Shaq was clearly the best player during those titles.

B. Remains to be seen how Wade and Lebron play together.

C. Cry about it.

They still played together when both were considered top 5 in the league. FACT.

Kareem and Magic no longer top 5 all time. Right?

Just like how Kobe and Shaq aren't in the top 5 since they played with each other.

Kareem already won a title elsewhere, and went to the Lakers before Magic was even drafted onto the Lakers. That said, Magic was drafted to the Lakers, he didn't time warp back in time after he established himself as a great player and demand he be drafted to the Lakers or something.

LeBron chose to go play with Wade because he failed on his own.

Don't compare the two situations. They couldn't possibly be more different.
