Magic Johnson Once Claimed That Michael Jordan Would Wreck LeBron One On One


Magic Johnson and LeBron may be on the same side nowadays, but there was a time when Magic was all about Jordan.

In fact, it was just a few years ago that Johnson claimed Jordan would stomp LeBron if they ever played 1-on-1.

In a series of tweets, he wrote that it was an “easy” decision and that if MJ and LeBron played 1-on-1 10 times, Jordan would win all 10.

Of course, one has to wonder how these comments would change today. At 34, he is still somehow playing at his highest level, something nobody (including MJ) has done.

His durability, strength, and basketball IQ would no doubt serve him well in a match with Jordan. And as time goes on, people seem more willing to give LeBron the benefit of the doubt.

Sadly, the argument will have to stick to our imaginations, but it’s one that will only heat up as James closes out his career.
