LeBron was asked who the "Best 3" Players were. I don't know if his answer changes if he's asked who the "Greatest 3" are, but I think a distinction could be made between "Best" and "Greatest". Surely LeBron knows Magic's legacy is more illustrious than Dr. J's even though Dr. J may arguably be more talented.

I don't see this as news worthy. Was expecting more when I came in the thread.

Not exactly a tweet, but that's what Magic responded too.

What I love about him picking Dr. J is that he obviously doesn't spend time on the internet on internet forums, else his picks would have been polluted.

Magic responded, saying that rings are what matter and then gave the ring counts of himself, Lebron, and the 3 players Lebron mentioned as his Top 3.

Good eye. Even I wasn't noticing that. He's talking about the people involved in the dumb controversy.

It's somewhat newsworthy, but there had to have been a thread made on this when the story first broke.

It makes some sense if LeBron was talking about non-bigs, since I'd imagine they're who he compares himself to/is compared to the most often. In that case, I don't see anything wrong with his top 4, if he's counting ABA=NBA (which was true when Dr. J played in the ABA, most likely) and ignoring bigs (you'd expect him to name Oscar too and maybe Kobe if he named two more players).

Shaq was the same way iirc. He always compares himself to the great centers (and PFs, since he's mentioned Duncan) we've seen. Not surprising, and it makes sense.

Pauk called Magic Johnson a ring chaser by being drafted by the Lakers

Come on, let's get serious. I respect Bill Russell and all he accomplished but you guys believe those 60's Celtics would beat any of the modern era champions? Heinsohn, Cousy wouldn't even be starters nowadays

Russell's 11 rings have about the same weight of a threepeat today, IMO.

When inferior white basketball players didn't take black players spot because of racism...maybe early 70's? I wasn't around back then but if you watch hoops from that era, looks really goofy.

Admit it.
