Magic Johnson: ‘Showtime Lakers Would’ve Swept Today’s Warriors (VIDEO)
So what do you do when the NBA Finals lack the drama needed to keep people intrigued? You deal with hypothetical match-ups involving teams in this era against teams in a different era.
The Golden State Warriors are on the cusp of doing something no team has ever done before—go undefeated in the entire playoffs en route to an NBA Championship, which would be their second in three years.
Despite that aspect, Los Angeles Lakers legend Magic Johnson believes his ‘showtime’ Lakers would not only beat Golden State in a seven-game series, they’d win handily.
“We’d probably sweep them,” Magic said at an American Express event Monday night.
