How do you define greatness? It’s a topic that’s never had a true answer, though clearly former Los Angeles Lakers great Magic Johnson thinks greatness should be defined by the amount of championship rings one has.
Case in point? From Magic’s Twitter account:
NBA Championship rings are all that matter; Jordan 6, Me 5, Bird 3, LeBron 2 and Dr. J 1.
Now, I’m not exactly sure where Magic is going here (also take note he leaves out Kobe who has five rings. Ouch) considering there are a ton of players with far more rings than him who are clearly sub-par in terms of talent. Do their rings mean less? Aren’t rings the result of team play?
Feeling slighted, Magic didn’t exactly agree with James’ selections:
Lebron is entitled to his opinion, but I still think that he and I have a similar game and that’s why I LOVE to watch him play!
