Players like LeBron and Bird can (and often do/did) play every position on the team.

Magic Johnson, one of the best point guards ever to put on sneakers, played Kareem Abdul Jabbar’s center position against the Philadelphia 76ers once when Kareem was injured. That didn’t make Magic a center.

Interesting! I didn’t know that.

That’s what I get for looking at players as a team without giving much thought to positions. They’re all just “players” to me.

Does anyone know how to get that Schoeder instagram video or is it gone forever? That video is sick and I am trying to send it to another ou fan. Thanks

LeBron was always a point forward with his teams. But he was still noted as being a Small Forward. Still is, in fact.

1980 NBA Finals in the Spectrum. Went for 40+ if memory serves. NBA fans back then were so fortunate.

When you reach of certain level of hoops nirvana, you're whatever the situation requires. Larry Legend certainly fits that mold. As did Magic. As does LeBron.

You’re right, Earvin scored a magical 42 points in that game! The 76ers had no idea how to stop him. I was a huge Magic and Laker fan back then. I lived in Michigan once, had the pleasure of watching Magic play in high school and in college.

What a player! He truly was like a Magician with a basketball in his hand!

If memory serves, Magic had 19 boards too.

Lebron is top 5 all time easily but I don’t think he could do the same down low. He is way too soft.
