Magic Johnson loves talking about NBA players, tweeting and making lists.

By quitting the Lakers, he can combine those passions without drawing a tampering fine.


We could quibble about the order of players. Damian Lillard and Karl-Anthony Towns are way too low. Jayson Tatum is way too high.

But I just can’t get over the length of the list. I bet Johnson set out to name 10 players and couldn’t bring himself to omit several. Then, there’s the 16-17 fiasco.

All together, tremendous content.
