Pat Riley calls Magic Johnson 'the greatest player of all-time'

Speaking at event with Pat Riley, Johnson said not only would his team have defeated the now-improved Warriors team with Kevin Durant, but predicts it would have "swept" them.

"I never understand when people try to compare eras and say this team could've beat that team or they couldn't have beat this team or this player was better than that player". I just hope soon we can get back to talking about how the Warriors can beat Cleveland. No, I think I sound stupid because that's how all of it be sounding to me. "And we could've won".

Magic is a dark horse in the GOAT debate, but we can all agree that he's one of the few players you can even put in that conversation. So there was a lot of bitterness that had really built up by the time we played them in "84".

"Everybody is caught into it, just like the Celtics-Lakers", Johnson said Monday. "If I were to say, 'We would've run (the historical teams) out of the gym, ' is that true?" I talk to them.

"I don't think either one of them is out here playing in this Finals for the title of the best player in the world", he said".

Zidane can stay at Real Madrid for life, says Perez
It is believed that around five people were seriously hurt, including a 7-year-old boy who was trampled, Sky TG24 reported. We live football for this and tonight we're all delighted".

Now the Warriors are an unprecedented 14-0 in the playoffs and winning by an average of 16.9 points per game. "Championships are history. That's really the only history I want to make".

Magic spoke at length on the top while guesting on ESPN's First Take a year ago.

"We don't bring up past year in terms of strategy, in terms of sort of what we need to do better or here or there", Kerr said.

The NBA has also made it more hard to play physical defense, another reason teams have gone smaller, and it's likely that the Lakers would have their collective hands full with the Warriors' array of scoring options.
