Magic Johnson is the best point guard

The greatest point guard of all time.  I had to put this on my blog.  The last sentence pushed me over the edge.  I agree with it.  I know, I’m a Laker fan, but I agree.  What does this have to do with God?  God is better than Magic Johnson and Christ (in his life, death, and resurrection) is Magic’s only hope before our Holy Creator.

Magic Johnson

Team: Los Angeles Lakers (1979-91, 1996)

Titles: 5 (1980, 1982, 1985, 1987, 1988)

Honors: 12-time All-Star, three-time MVP (1987, 1989, 1990), three-time Finals MVP (1980, 1982, 1987), Hall of Fame

The player: The prototype big point guard. The only player in NBA history who could dominate — not just play — all five positions.

Magic was the best ever in transition. He led the break and shoved the ball down your throat or backed you down and carved you up with a pass or drive.

He was unselfish — but not to a fault (he’d take over and score when necessary) — and he made passing cool.

Given his age (a rookie at age 20), the stakes (NBA Finals), the opponent (Dr. J and the 76ers) and the fact that he moved to center to replace injured legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic’s 42-point, 15-rebound, 7-assist, 3-steal effort in the title-clinching Game 6 of the 1980 NBA Finals was probably the best individual performance of all time.

It could be argued that he’s the one player in NBA history who was better than Michael Jordan.
