Magic Johnson Rumors

All NBA Players

Price missed Game 1 of that series with a groin injury. The Cavs lost and were forced to play catch-up the rest of the way. They almost did, but it wasn’t to be — as the shot that buried the Cavs helped propel Jordan to his status as the measuring stick for basketball greatness. “The next season, we traded Ron (for the draft rights to Danny Ferry), and that hurt us,” Price said. “I felt like other than the Lakers, and maybe the Pistons with Isiah Thomas and Joe Dumars, we had the best backcourt in the league.”
Bryant did not attend the ceremony, but along with Jackson and Magic Johnson praised O’Neal in a recorded video. “He was this funny, jovial guy but between those lines he’s not playing around,” Bryant said. “He played with such a viciousness, I watched him put centers to shame. … He put L.A. back on the map. He brought that belief back to Los Angeles that we’re playing for titles and nothing else.”
