Johnson was the ideal big point guard—the only player to ever excel at all five positions.
Magic was the best player of all-time on a fast break. He either drove hard right toward you to make the layup, or would kill you with a fancy pass to either side of the court.
When the Lakers made the finals in Magic's rookie year, they were forced to play the Sixers, led by high-flying Julius Erving.
In that game, Kareem was injured and the Lakers moved Johnson up to center. Magic had 42 points, 15 boards, seven assists, and three steals to clinch the NBA Finals. That's how good he was.
