  • My #1 Point Guard of All-Time is Magic Johnson. You know a guy is a great player when people are constantly searching for the next version of him. Steve Smith. Jalen Rose. Penny Hardaway. Shaun Livingston. Ben Simmons. All of these players were at least 6’7” and played point guard either in college or as a pro. As a result, simply because of their height, all of them were compared to Magic. While all had varying degrees of success, none of them came remotely close to matching Magic’s run as a tall point guard. At 6’9” he was a matchup problem no matter what team he played. While not fast or particularly athletic, he ran the Lakers fast break to perfection with a mix of great vision, decision-making, and great passing . He could also post up and hit cutting teammates for easy baskets. Prior to Magic winning his first MVP, a guard had not won the award in 22 years. He would go on to win the award two more times in the next three years. A Hall-of-Famer, 5-time champion, 3-time Finals MVP, voted one the 50 greatest players in NBA history, 12 -time All-Star, 10-time All-NBA, 4-time league assist leader, 2-time leader in steals, and a 2-time All-Star game MVP. Magic holds the highest career assist average (11.2) in league history. Had one of the most iconic games in NBA history as a rookie, leading the Lakers to the NBA title with a 42 point, 15 rebound, 7 assist masterpiece vs. the 76ers. That performance helped him to become the only rookie to be named Finals MVP. A winner who played in the NBA Finals 8 times, and the epitome of a guy who made players around him better. #magicjohnson #magic #losangeleslakers #michiganstateuniversity #lakers #tripledouble #32 #naismith #nba #halloffame #larrybird #kareemabduljabbar #worldchampion #allstarmvp #leaguemvp #50greatest #allnba #mvp #rookie #tallpointguard #stevesmith #jalenrose #pennyhardaway #shaunlivingston #winner #leader

  • Throwback Thursday: Kobe Bryant 🎥
    -
    Kobe scored
    14 in the 1st quarter.
    12 in the 2nd quarter.
    27 in the 3rd quarter.
    28 in the 4th quarter.
    Here were his totals:
    -
    vs. TOR (1/22/06)
    Stats: 81 pts, 6 reb, 2 ast, 3 stl, 1 blk
    28-46 FG, 7-13 3PT, 18-20 FT
    -
    Kobe Bryant’s 81 points still stands as the 2nd largest point total in NBA History.
    -
    “That was the first game and only game my grandmother has ever been to in the NBA and it was my grandfather’s birthday that had passed away. So, there were a lot of things at work.” - Kobe Bryant
    -
    Kobe scoring 81 points that night wasn’t a coincidence, he wanted to put on a show to honor his grandparents. Players of his caliber can flip a switch with their greatness.
    -
    While Kobe has a reputation of being a “ball hog”, I don’t really blame him. To me Kobe Bryant is the best tough shot maker in NBA History.
    -
    Fallaway, double teamed, triple teamed, it didn’t matter. Kobe Bryant could score over absolutely ANYONE, he literally generated points out of thin air.
    -
    His 81 points came amidst his best individual statistical season. Here were his stats for the year as well as some of his notable box scores from the season:
    -
    2005-2006
Stats: 35.4 ppg, 5.3 rpg, 4.5 apg, 1.8 spg
Percentages: 45.0 FG%, 34.7 3PT%, 85.0 FT%
    -
    vs. DAL (12/20/05): 62 pts, 8 reb
    @ LAC (1/7/06): 50 pts, 8 reb, 8 ast
    @ SAC (1/19/06): 51 pts, 9 reb, 4 ast
    vs. TOR (1/22/06): 81 pts, 6 reb, 2 ast
    @ PHX (4/7/06): 51 pts, 5 reb, 3 ast
    vs. POR (4/14/06): 50 pts, 6 reb, 1 ast
    -
    Keep in mind, those games were all in ONE season! People say Shaq “carried” Kobe to his rings, but Kobe averaged 21.1 ppg, 29.4 ppg, & 26.6 ppg respectively during their 3-peat run.
    -
    Both Shaq & Magic Johnson have been on record calling Kobe the “Greatest Laker ever”.
    -
    You can call him inefficient, a ball hog, or even a knockoff Michael Jordan, as if that’s some sort of slight at someone.
    -
    But that won’t take away from the fact that he’s a 5x NBA Champion, an 18x All-Star, an MVP, and one of the greatest players/scorers that the game has ever seen.
    -
    What are some of the most impressive individual seasons throughout NBA History?

  • Card of the day!
    Jalen Rose
    94-95 Topps Embossed, Gold
    -
    The rookies were very different from the veterans. The one exceptions was for the Rockets players, they had a design like the rookies to apparently commemorate their championship.
    I don’t this that makes a ton of sense but I like how they did the gold rookies, The player was not pictured in gold.
    Some may prefer the look of the veteran golds though.
