Magic Johnson has the best winning percentage of all NBA legends in league history


Bill Russell is the winningest NBA player in terms of championship rings with 11, but the legendary center is not even No. 1 in Celtic history if we factor in winning percentage. With an impressive 660-237 record (73.58 percentage of wins), Larry Bird is ahead of the five-time MVP. Of the Top 60 players on ESPN’s greatest ever list, only one beats Bird. That would be his 80’s arch-nemesis Magic Johnson, owner of a 73.95 percent winning record.

There’s just two active players in the Top 12, both ahead of Russell and both Spurs: Tony Parker and Tim Duncan.
