Magic Johnson Responds To LeBron James Ranking His Top 3 Players

Earlier this week, LeBron James named his top three basketball players of all time — and Magic Johnson was not included. James listed Michael Jordan, Larry Bird and Julius Erving. James then asked to add a fourth player, and listed Johnson as his fourth.

Today, Johnson took to twitter and responded with the rings argument.

Johnson clearly respects James, but seems a bit offended that he wasn’t included in his top three players of all time, especially considering how great and accomplished Magic was during his career with the Lakers.

On top of his five titles in the 80s, Johnson was the winner of three MVP awards and three Finals MVP awards. Johnson was named to 12 all star games and won the MVP in two of them. He was named to nine All-NBA First team selections and led the NBA in assists four times during his career.

Johnson has a case to be in anyone’s top three players of all time, but everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and in James’ opinion, Johnson is fourth. Check the video of James ranking his top three below.
