Every time i watch a pre-game show with magic it sickens me how much magic d### rides lbj. Is it because lebron is the closest thing to resemble him? YES LEBRON IS THE BEST ALL AROUND PLAYER IN THE GAME TODAY. But i still dont understand magic.

Magic probably sees a lot of himself in LBJ and LBJ has said from day 1 he modeled his game after Magic, so I'm sure Magic appreciates that a guy of his talent level wanted to be like him and not Jordan like the rest of the world.

How do i sound mad im not bashing lebron. In fact i admit he is the best player in the game today. I just get tired of magic anytime they ask him a question he says lebron james lol. He is the opposite of skip bayless.

I read this thread as "what's up with Magic's love of BJ's" and I'm not sorry about it. Neither is Magic. BJ's are great.

From a talent perspective, yeah, maybe they're close.

From a mental aspect of how to approach the game, Magic as a young rookie was light yrs ahead than LeBron currently in his 9th season.

Lets be real...LBJ is a very good player...Prob rarer than a Jordan type. No player in the last decade or so has the ability and stat stuffing capabilities that LBJ has. The last person to be this all around good is MJ,but he is in another catagory. A player like LBJ is just as rare. The last such player like LBJ was Oscar Robinson/Some say Magic. A 6-6 to 6-9 All around player ,unguardable almost... and does it all Defensively. I see why Magic likes LBJ.

Thank you!

Now STFU haters. When Magic makes jokes of LeBron it's OK but when he claims LeBron as the best it's not? GTFO! Magic understands the game better than everybody on PSD combined. So when he makes a judgement on someone's game it's more than legit.

Why don't you make a thread "What is up with Bayless' hate of LBJ'?

Why question one side but not the another? Why are you tired of someone's love for Lebron but don't question when someone blatantly insults him?

i disagree with the op. after the last okc/heat game he said durant should be the mvp. nothing wrong with him saying lebron is the mvp and picking lebron over durant. most people here would do the same.

Because skip bayless gets paid to criticize him lol and magic gets paid to analyze the game as a whole not just dick ride lebron. By the way skip is funny as hell although he is obsessed with lebron.

P.S. who the heck said im upset at lebron not joining the suns :facepalm: slap yourself. We never had a chance at him even steve kerr, gm at the time, said they would gladly let lebron join if he took an mle.

I don't get why people get so mad when people support, stand up for, defend, etc. the best player in the league. It's like some people don't think that's OK...

Odd...

Make a thread on "Skip Bayless's irrational hate on LBJ." Then this thread will gain some ground.

I dont understand how some poeple here are considered "vets" and "mods" do you guys even read the title. THIS THREAD IS NOT ABOUT LEBRON, in fact i give him props for being the best in the world. Magic is just OBSESSED, just like skip, with lebron james. If some people watched the nba pre-game shows continuously they would know what i am talking about.

Why is he obsessed?

Because he praises the best player in the world. It's not like he gushes over him...he just gives him his props...and many people feel there are a lot of props worth giving. It's not like he'll only talk about him. It's not like he'll bring the name up every second he can.

:shrug:

I don't get how he's obsessed. He doesn't go out of his way like Skip does to praise LeBron every second he can. He doesn't go on twitter after every game, win or lose, to suck LeBron's dick.

I don't see obsession...I just see praise.

Well Lebron is the better version of Magic, so Magic's infatuation with Lebron is quite normal... If someone has modelled his game after you, yet produces more and does it more efficiently, that would impress anyone.

:laugh2:

Are you saying because it's funny to diss Lebron, it's okay?

Also, praising a player for being talented is not wrong, especially when that player is having the season that he is. Everyone did the same thing with Jordan. With Kobe. And they'll do the same with Durant and Rose. It's not wrong for Magic to talk about Lebron because in reality, he's been having an amazing season.

You don't expect him to talk about Joel Anthony, do you? I'd assume that someone asked him questions or the topic was about Lebron or could have been interrelated to Lebron and he was voicing his opinion on it. If the topic was about Kobe and Durant with no way possible that it could be tied back to Lebron and yet he still praises Lebron, it's a cause for concern.

Outside of that, this thread isn't doing anyone a favour.

Because he can sympathize with Lebron's decision. Magic came out of school wanting to play with the best player in the league in Kareem a proven winner and finals mvp winner. Lebron as well wanted to go play with the best player in the league in Wade who as well is a proven winner. So they understand where each is coming from.

Magic appreciates Lebrons talent rather than hate on him about something that happened almost 2 years ago. Much like how most people sit back and appreciate Kobe's game.
