Video: Magic Johnson Takes Shots at LeBron James During Roast

Magic Johnson took the stage in Albany, New York and took a few shots at LeBron James. While Johnson was certainly joking around, there were a few that are sure to entertain Lakers fans.

“There will always be great players in basketball. There’s always going to be guys who win championships in the NBA. Except LeBron.”

That certainly got a rise out of the crowd, but Johnson went on to add a few more jokes.

“Everybody’s always asking, ‘who is better between Kobe and LeBron’? I’m like ‘are you kidding me? Kobe five championships, LeBron zero. I love the young man though. I know he’s going to get better this year in the fourth quarter.”

To quickly clarify his joking demeanor he stated he has nothing but love for LeBron, and that this is all in good fun.

“No, I’m not hating on LeBron. He’s a triple-double threat every single game and he’s going to get better.”
