Magic Johnson's game is the most similar to LeBron's. Both were forward size, yet could handle the rock with precision and make pinpoint passes to open teammates. Truly a magician with the ball (hence the nickname), Magic was the floor general of the Showtime Lakers in the 1980s.
But while Magic showed he could step up and be the dominant scorer for the Lakers, it wasn't always his responsibility. He was the facilitator of the offense and had Hall of Famers Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and James Worthy on his squad.
During his seven years in Cleveland, LeBrons best teammates were Delonte West and Mo Williams. Nothing against those two players, but they aren't going to the Hall of Fame. The Cavaliers relied on James to score, pass, rebound and play defense, all at a high level. If he had the quality of players that Magic had, we would be talking about LBJ in a different light.
