Magic Johnson and LeBron James posed together this weekend at the Cowboys-Chargers game and it was a Lakers fan’s dream come true. Or really any NBA fan’s dream — because you can’t get bigger basketball royalty than this, can you?
Magic and LeBron represent different generations, but they hold similar status: true superstars. LeBron and Magic have both hoisted NBA Championship trophies for the Lakers — Magic lifted five of them, LeBron one so far. They’ve won MVPs, Olympic Gold, NBA Finals MVPs, and the list goes on and on. But one of the most interesting question is: who’s taller?
They look about even in height to us. Magic is usually listed at six feet nine and LeBron is listed as six feet eight. Another very surprising thing is how strong Magic looks, decades from his last NBA game. He looks like he could lace them up and run with LeBron, Anthony Davis, Rajon Rondo, Carmelo Anthony and the rest of the Lakers this year!
One fan got the pairing right on the money: “The greatest passer of all time and the 2nd greatest passer of all time. Here’s the greatest passer of all time — standing by himself — before the second greatest passer joins him.
