    Without a doubt Magic. I mean, you'd have to be pretty special to get that nickname. I'm definitely not disrespecting Bird, either. He was a hell of a ball player and is probably top 10 all-time

    Magic Johnson. His play on the court was more fun to watch. Meet him in person too.

    That's an unfair comparison of two different type of players.

    It's like when people compare Lebron to Jordan. They have different types of games. Lebron is more like Magic then Jordan. Kobe is more like Jordan.

    Bird and Magic did not play the same style, so it's hard to say who was better. They were both amazing at what they did. I don't think neither could have won on their own, so I can not judge who was better.

    Larry Bird is the obvious choice.

    Three points are more than two. :p
