You know that saying, “consider the source”? Yeah, I think that applies here, and that’s as good as it gets for Ben Simmons. Magic Johnson is literally never wrong. He’s the sharpest evaluator of talent in the game, and he’s stingy with his praise too. Takes a lot to get Magic excited about anything.
His opinions and in-depth breakdowns on anything hoops-related are unmatched.
Not just basketball, either.
And it’s not just sports, it’s pop culture too.
So yeah, I’d say if Magic Johnson calls you the best player since LeBron…you’re the best player since LeBron.
And let me ask you this – how many times did LeBron beat Kentucky?
That’s what I thought.
