Magic Johnson Rumors

All NBA Players

Ben Wilson was somebody, too, described as “Magic Johnson with a jump shot.” Wilson was the No. 1-ranked high school player in the country when he was murdered the day before his senior season started in 1984. Maurice Davis was also once somebody, a standout player in the city who was shot in the back and killed as a senior in 2002. There were so many somebodys, some who still walk the streets. There were players better than Rose, Englewood native Sheila Cooks said — also vowing never to watch the Bulls again less than 24 hours after their stunning trade with the Knicks sent Rose to the Big Apple — players who couldn’t handle the hype or the drugs or the gangs. “When I was younger, I used to cry about how rough it was,” Rose told Chicago Magazine in 2008. “I just wanted to be old enough to get me and my family out of there.”
Magic Johnson revolutionized the point guard position at 6-foot-9 — for his aptitude in the half-court game but, more so, for the impressive way a man his size could lead the way in transition and make smart decisions with the ball. (Magic had 11.2 assists and 3.9 turnovers per game for his career.) No one is expecting Simmons to do that in the NBA, but he is surprisingly well-versed in transition offense and being the initiator of the offense. Per Synergy Sports Tech’s numbers, Simmons was involved in transition for 26 percent of his total offensive plays at LSU — more than any other type.
Magic Johnson: Congratulations to LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers on winning the NBA Championship! LeBron James took this series over in the last 3 games, like the great ones do and brought the championship home to Ohio! Coach Lue deserves a lot of credit, he drew up an excellent play to get Kyrie Irving the ball and he delivered with the game winning shot! LeBron James with this championship sealed his legacy as one of the five greatest players to ever play this game! LeBron James delivered on his promise to bring a championship to Cleveland, now if he decides to leave nobody can be mad at him. There can’t be anymore LeBron James haters. He’s proved that he is still the best player in the world with this championship! Congrats to rookie head coach and my friend Tyronn Lue! Coach Lue made some great in-game adjustments to put the Cavs in position to win!
