Magic drives me crazy. He just said LeBron is the best player in the world and then said Dwyane Wade is the best unselfish superstar of all-time. WTF?
I'll give him this, he said if the Spurs didn't win game six, it was over. Boy was he right.
It's possible for that.
LeBron can be (and is) the best player in the world while Dwyane Wade is the most unselfish superstar. Being the best and the most unselfish are two completely different things.
He didn't say most unselfish, he said best unselfish superstar.
I really like Magic and his basketball knowledge is undeniable but he really sounds like LeBron and Wade's groupie
Hahaha he gets a lil carried away sometimes. At the end of the D-Wade interview he said that D Wade is the most unselfish person in the world... Easy there fella
HAHAHA yeah I heard that. Magic is just one of the nicest dudes around and he does get carried away lol.
I couldn't help but thinking how much of a Lebron homer Magic was lol. He was slobbering all over him during the. post game
Magic seems like a great guy. Horrible analyst IMO. He makes the most obvious remarks and takes forever to deliver them.
Magic is a phony. He wrote a book full of lies. His predictions are mostly wrong, which is fine except he never admits it. Always acts like he is right. He has a huge ego but makes it seem like he's nice and humble. It doesn't help that Wilbon is always sweatin him. Jalen and Simmons are straight.
on that Jalen and Simmons are straight. First of all, Jalen is ok, but in no way should he be the "host" for this. He is not that dude. They don't have a EJ, Kamla, Cellini, Weiner type to set things up and I just don't think Jalen is very good at it. It's strange that they wouldn't use Wilbon in that role, but whatever. Jalen has good anecdotes on things from a former players perspective, but I don't think he can steer the conversation and make sure things stay on track. Simmons was funny 8 years ago, but now has become a caricature of himself. He tries too hard to be funny and comes off as such a Boston homer. You are a journalist. Try being objective once in a while. Magic does seem like a really good guy. He just isn't great at talking about basketball. It is a skill to be able to communicate what is happening in a game and translate it for the casual observer. Just because you were great at playing, does not mean you are great at talking, right Moses Malone? Fo-Fo-Fo. Just kidding Moses, you were a beast!
I always think about the line Simmons used in his book to describe listening Magic on t.v. It was something like, Magic sounds like he is eating a ham sandwich when he talks on t.v. I thought that line was hilarious, but then I started wondering if anyone had every pointed that out to Magic on the set. That would make for some awkward commercial breaks between those two.
