Magic Johnson Was (Understandably) Extremely Emotional After Kobe Bryant’s Tribute To Jerry Buss Last Night

Over 30,000 points, five NBA championships, two Olympic gold medals, and countless other accolades. Kobe Bryant’s resume is pretty impressive. But is he the greatest Laker ever? According to two of the best Lakers ever, yes.
Magic Johnson was a guest on HBO’s Real Sports, and was asked about, among other things, his efforts to make Dwight Howard a Laker. One of Magic’s sales pitches: you’ll get to play with Kobe, the league’s “ultimate closer.” And that would sound nice – if it weren’t totally wrong.

And it will be awesome.
For those of you that are less than pscyhed for tonight’s offensively challenged battle between Philadelphia and Boston, here’s a way for you to get the juices flowing.
