LBJ with another great game but in a loss vs Utah. Finished with 35 points, 6 assist and 10 rebounds. He did pass up a last second shot for the win but that shouldn't be surprising.

...as a Kareem "sidekick". How many by himself? :)



Pssst, KT.
Kareem played 4 years in Los Angeles before getting his 1st ring with the Lakers in Magic's rookie season in the league.
Cap finished with 5 NBA Championships with the Lakers and Magic Johnson. The last one at age 40, just a shadow of his previous greatness and averaged just 14 a game in the Playoffs.
As you probably know KT, Magic's career was cut short by Aids. He only played one full season without his good friend Kareem Abdul Jabbar before he was forced off the court.
The "Sidekick" Also covered for Cap Game 6 of the Finals in 1980.



Shame on you KT!

25, 11, and 7. Even had time to check 7 foot Pau Gasol for most of the day. Think you'll ever see Kobe or Durant guarding another team's all star big man? Basketball is more than just chucking shots and mimicking Jordan.

Pssst, KT.
Kareem played 4 years in Los Angeles before getting his 1st ring with the Lakers in Magic's rookie season in the league.


Kareem had already won a title in Milwaukee with HOF PG Oscar Robertson. He was already a 4 time MVP and had numerous scoring titles before Magic got there. It was CLEARLY his team. In 1979 when LA drafted him, they were a 2nd round playoff team and got the #1 overall pick in a trade with bottom feeder NO Jazz. It'd be the equilivant of last year's Lakers getting the #1 overall pick and drafting Kyrie Irving. Magic was privileged enough to be drafted by a playoff team full of all stars like Kareem, Norm Nixon, Wilkes. Magic never had the heart or desire to lead a team from scratch like a LeBron and be the man. He's on record as saying if the Bulls had won the coin flip that year (over LA) he would've went back to school.

Cap finished with 5 NBA Championships with the Lakers and Magic Johnson.


As stated, he has 6 total rings and 6 MVPs. Thats more than 2 times as many MVP awards as Magic. Kareem is the ALL TIME LEADING SCORER in NBA history. Let me repeat that, he is the ALL TIME LEADING SCORER in NBA history as a big man. Dont think that helped Magic out a bit?

As you probably know KT, Magic's career was cut short by Aids. He only played one full season without his good friend Kareem Abdul Jabbar before he was forced off the court.
The "Sidekick" Also covered for Cap Game 6 of the Finals in 1980.


Magic should've never got Finals MVP in 1980. Kareem was averaging 33.4 points and over 12 boards a game thru 5 games. Had it not been for Magic being more "media friendly" he wouldnt've got it. Look at Kareem's #'s that series than Magic's and tell me why the "sidekick" won MVP?

Shame on you KT!.


Shame on me for looking at Magic for what he is. A HOF PG that would be titleless had he not played with HOFers and all stars his whole career. He never took a bottom feeder to the Finals. He never took a sorry team and made it great. He was blessed to play on great teams and a great organization his whole career. How many NBA players can say that? Not many. The one Finals he played in without Kareem he won 1 game at age 32.

"I'd have stayed in school," he said here Tuesday, standing alone outside Gate 3 1/2 of Chicago Stadium, the house that could have been his. "A coin toss changed the course of my whole life." Chicago called heads in a 1979 coin flip with Los Angeles for the No. 1 pick in the NBA college draft. It came up tails.

Johnson signed with the Lakers after his sophomore year of college and proceeded to win five championships. The Bulls picked second, took UCLA's David Greenwood and have won no championships.

"I wouldn't have played here," Johnson said on the eve of Game 2 of the NBA finals between his team and the team that could have been his. "The only reason I came out was to play with Kareem and the Lakers."


http://articles.lati.../sp-83_1_lakers

Magic, Bird, Michael, Barkley, Malone, etc. All these dudes from the 80s are so lucky they dont play today. On the court they are far superior to today's players, but off the court they werent no different in a lot of ways and a bigger mess in others. Magic's lucky we didnt have a 24 hour sports news cycle/twitter/etc to hold him accountable for such statements and remind people of his and his fans hypocrisy. Magic wanted no parts of going to a sorry 30 win Bulls team at that time. He wanted to be Kareem's "sidekick".

SINGAPORE — Dunkin' Brands Inc. said Monday that NBA superstar Lebron James has agreed to promote Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin-Robbins ice cream in Asia where the company has about a third of its stores.

James will promote Dunkin's brands in China, Taiwan, India and South Korea through advertisements, online media and in-store marketing, Dunkin' said. James will also make personal appearances in Asia after the season ends in June.

Dunkin' executive John Costello declined to give the terms of the deal, but said it was multiyear and worth multimillions of dollars.

"I'm really excited about partnering with Dunkin' Brands and connecting with the huge community of basketball fans" in Asia, James said in a statement.

James, a two-time NBA Most Valuable Player, has the best-selling basketball jersey and shoe in China and has visited Asia four times. China is the NBA's second-biggest market after the U.S., and NBA players often visit Asia on behalf of shoe companies or other sponsors during the offseason.


Dunkin' is hoping James' popularity will help boost sales in a region where it has about 5,400 stores, or about a third of its global total. Dunkin' plans to add at least 250 stores in Asia during the next two to three years, Chief Executive Nigel Travis said.

Dunkin' opened its first restaurant in Vietnam in December and plans to open its inaugural store in India later this year, Travis said. South Korea has the most Dunkin' stores in Asia with about 1,900 while Japan has 1,087 – all Baskin-Robbins.

The company plans to boosts its total shops in China by 100 over the next few years from a current 150, Travis said.

The James deal "is Asia focused and reflects our commitment to Asia," Travis told reporters in Singapore. "Lebron has a strong commitment to building his relationship in Asia so he's definitely planning multiple trips to Asia in the offseason this year."

The popularity of basketball in Asia has grown during the last decade, in part because of former Houston Rockets center Yao Ming of China, who retired last year. New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin has become an overnight sensation in Asia, especially in China and Taiwan. Lin, whose parents were born in Taiwan, is the first Asia-American player in the NBA.

Costello said Dunkin is happy to have snagged James, who has been an All-Star for eight seasons.

Lin "certainly is an exciting new player with 20 games to his history," said Costello, who is Dunkin's chief global marketing and innovation officer. "But Lebron James has had a fabulous nine years. We think the excitement around Jeremy Lin will actually create more awareness in Asia."

James, 27, is in his ninth NBA season since turning professional straight out of high school. His Miami Heat lost in last year's finals to the Dallas Mavericks.

sorry KT...I saw Lebron quit on his team late in the game yesterday.

he's big and yup, he can dunk....but he's no Kobe!

the whole argument of who has ever won what without sidekicks is rediculous! You play golf man vs man, basketball is a team sport

How do you figure Lebron quit? He landed on some random ladies foot and twisted his ankle....looked to me as if he probably should have sat down at that point cuz there was no way there were going to win the game..

that lady looked at him like she hated the fact he was anywhere near her...but seriously, he spent the whole game guarding Pau, and did a d#$$# good job at it. Pau didn't get the best of the match-up.... I know you like Kobe and all, but give LeBron his props, Kobe would not match up with Pau or any other 7 footer for that matter

I wouldn't trust Durant against another team's all star big man, because he's a skinny cat. But I'm just foolin around, man. I just took that shot, because you came after my guy Durant earlier :lol:
Bron did his thing against Gasol yesterday, and had a good game. I'm most impressed with Lebron's assist numbers. As a PG all throughout grade school and high school, that's what I examine most, and I'm amazed that a guy his size has the court vision and touch with his passes that he does.
