"Who Wins In A Game Of 2-On-2 To 16? Kevin Durant And LeBron James vs. Magic Johnson And Larry Bird?' Quinn Cook Asks Fans

Hypothetical matchups and comparisons have always been part of the league but in the past 12 months, fans have taken things to the next level, always trying to compare two or more big figures from different eras to spark a debate and see what other people think.

The GOAT debate is the prime sample of that but it's not the only comparison we've seen in recent times. We have seen people trying to figure out who would win between the 1992 Dream Team and the 2008 Redeem Team, between the 1996 Bulls and the 2017 Warriors, and many more showdowns.

Quinn Cook took to Twitter to present a very good challenge between four players that will go down as the best of the best in the league. He put Kevin Durant and LeBron James face to face with Magic Johnson and Larry Bird.

"Who wins in a game of 2on2 to 16?!?! Kevin Durant & LeBron James vs Magic Johnson & Larry Bird?!?! Who wins and why?! Y’all know who I’m rolling with!!" He asked fans on Twitter.

As expected, this created a big debate with fans making the case for KD and the King and others explaining what Magic and Bird would win the hypothetical matchup.

We are talking about four of the best players in NBA history and they have a lot of similarities. KD is a great scorer, just like Bird, while Johnson and James are famous because they're incredible passers and facilitators.

This would be a very entertaining and close matchup but it always comes down to the same conclusion. You can't compare eras and that's what makes this so hard to settle.
