The Greatest All-Around Players In NBA History
3 – Magic Johnson
Earvin “Magic” Johnson is one of the very few NBA players of his size that are gifted with the skillset that he possess. His court vision and basketball IQ are off the charts that they allow him to see plays before they even happen. Magic is second in the all-time leader in triple doubles with 138 over 13 years. In his third season, Johnson came close to averaging a triple double when he had a line of 18.6 points, 9.6 rebounds, and 9.5 assists. His career numbers are 19.5 points, 7.2 rebounds, 11.2 assists, and 1.9 steals per game. Magic Johnson is a big point guard alright but in the 1980 NBA Finals against the Philadelphia 76ers, his rookie season, he started Game 6 at center for the Los Angeles Lakers and finished the game with 42 points, 15 rebounds, and 7 assists to give his team the championship. Not bad for a greenhorn.
