Magic is just a huge fan of basketball in general and gets overly excited when anything happens. No harm, no foul. He'll be back to normal come game 1 when lebron has an average game.

Lebron is the closest thing to Magic. A more athletic version. Not surprising he would like his game.

Because he see's himself somewhat in Lebron. Lebron's mindset of the game as far as being unselfish and being all around is more Magic than Michael. Lebron doesn't really go out looking to score 30 pts a game like MJ..KObe is more in that vein.

Yea Lebron has said many times he patterned his game after guys like Magic/Penny..... but Magic also admitted even before that (2003) that seeing Lebron "reminds me of my younger self".... he was excited to see that gamestyle HE started (you know, 6'8, versatility, point-forward)... to perhaps transcend... with all this Jordan talk Lebron was actually compared/hyped as "The next Magic Johnson" coming in to the league, not next Jordan... so he is kindof like Magics pupile and with all this success from Lebron he cant help but commend him anyways...

Pippen is kindof like that to, with his gamestyle/versatility on both ends he kindof relates to Lebron...

For the same reason Jordan relates more towards Kobe... similar size/position and gamestyle... and if the player is successful then its even easier to relate...

Unless he is actually gay, there is no reason to say things that he says and in the way he says them.

Yeah, I def think there are business motivations behind Magic's praise of young players, and I think he's gay.

Yup. I think it's pretty obvious.

It was actually very creepy, freaked me out to the point that I had to turn it off.

It was very uncomfortable. It was like being in a sports bar and watching a guy who had too many drinks trying to holla at one of your boys.

Yeah, Magic only wants to ride the nuts of winners.
