Magic Johnson appeared on Jimmy Kimmel the other night, and he discussed the recently retired Kobe Bryant. Johnson then explained if the Black Mamba is the greatest player in the history of the Los Angeles Lakers franchise.
Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar are often up there as one of the greatest Lakers, as well as the Shaquille O'Neal. However, it looks like Kobe may have trumped all of them to being the greatest Laker.
"When you think about what Kobe has achieved, we both have five championships. He did it his way with him dominating the scoring, putting the team on his back and I did it my way with my leadership and make sure that I put our team in a position to win. At the end of the day, he has represented this city and the Laker organization as well as anybody could.”
