Michael Jordan and LeBron James are no longer the subject of the GOAT discussion. It has transitioned from position supremacy away from the finest player of all time. And when these debates take place, tempers flare. This time, Magic Johnson and Stephen Curry engage in a PG dispute for the sake of NBA fans.
The argument has been going on for a while, but Curry fueled it more by claiming to be the greatest point guard of all time. Michael Jordan rejects this notion.
How does Shaquille O’Neal feel about everything now?
Shaquille O’Neal presents an unbiased viewpoint. An Instagram Story by the Los Angeles Lakers legend that links to a post by Basketball Forever was put on his Instagram. The description for the image reads, “Stephen Curry vs. Magic Johnson Let’s finally put this to rest. Who do you have?”
It continues by highlighting both players’ achievements and providing a summary of the scenario based on their contributions. O’Neal doesn’t add any commentary to the post or the narrative. Perhaps he is also pondering the controversy and looking for feedback from his audience.
Michael Jordan, his longtime rival, didn’t back down, though. The former Chicago Bulls star texted the ESPN broadcaster after Smith chose Curry over Johnson.
He said he “begs to differ” with the analyst in that statement. ,” Magic Johnson is easily the best point guard of all-time. Steph Curry is very close but not in front of Magic. You must define point guard to really have a serious debate. Steph Curry is by far the best shooter of all time. Yes, his movement has created many shots for his teammates, he’s a career 43 percent 3-point shooter, but Magic Johnson invented the triple-double.”
He also added : ,”Not true invented, but makes it more noticeable in terms of the impact on the game. It’s a point guard stat to be honest. Magic is the best. We could go on, but I don’t wanna take up too much of your time. I know you get the point. By the way, Magic has five NBA championships.”.
He said he “begs to differ” with the analyst in that statement. Because of what Curry stated, even MJ himself has been paying attention to the issue.
A major dispute was started by Stephen Curry
The Warriors Guard’s appearance in Gil’s Arena caused a significant uproar.
Given that Steph is the source of the allegations, media coverage has been prominent. For someone who maintains such a low profile to text someone demonstrates the fervor of the discussion, thus it is significant that MJ is giving it some thought.
