Bird had a lot of success in the NBA, winning three titles as well as multiple Most Valuable Player awards. However, I think his greatest achievement was leading
Magic is the greatest Los Angeles Lakers' player ever. For a long time, I thought that honor should go to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, but Magic's overall versatility now gives him the nod in my book. If you disagree, check out Magic's performance in Game 6 of the NBA finals in 1980. As a rookie, the 6'9" Johnson filled in for the injured Abdul-Jabbar and scored 42 points with 15 rebounds and seven assists. Not bad at all.
Like I said, this book is worth it. It should be coming out in paperback soon.
