Here's What Magic Johnson Said About the Los Angeles Lakers Winning NBA Championship

Former NBA superstar Magic Johnson opens up about the Los Angeles Lakers' NBA Championship while adding that the men deserved the win this year.

In a chat with People Magazine about his campaign to support Amazon Small Business, former NBA superstar Magic Johnson talked about the Los Angeles Lakers winning the NBA Championship and revealed that:

"The sacrifice of the players, and their families, to leave home and go to the bubble is incredible, and they deserve this moment."

Johnson, who used to play for the Lakers at some point, added that the team's win was a deserving and joyful one as they had to battle with the loss of Kobe Bryant and the novel coronavirus that left the world confused.

He further added that he was happy for his sister, Lakers owner Jeanie Buss. He also gave credit to General Manager Rob Pelinka, Coach Frank Vogel, and the entire staff for doing a great job all through the season. 

With the death of Kobe Byrant, his daughter Gianna and eight other people, things were tough for the Lakers at the beginning of the year.

Johnson touched briefly on his campaign for the support of Amazon Small Business and how they were important to society. He explained that small businesses were pillars of American society and they need to be encouraged at any point in time.

While he might be taking on the business side of things, Johnson has always been a basketballer at heart, and he recently lent his voice to the long-standing debate of who was a greater player between LeBron James and Michael Jordan.

Johnson expressed that both Jordan and LeBron are great players, but as of now, he thinks Jordan is greater than LeBron. For Johnson, LeBron could only match Jordan if he wins a fifth championship title next season instead of Jordan's six championship title wins.

This is currently LeBron's fourth championship title win with the Lakers, and while the victory might be sweet, the team had to fight through heartbreak to gain this victory.

With the death of Kobe Byrant, his daughter Gianna and eight other people, things were tough for the Lakers at the beginning of the year.

Now that the Lakers have gone on to win this victory after defeating the Miami Heat, they dedicated their win to the memory of their former teammate and to all those who lost their lives in that unfateful helicopter crash.
