Former Los Angeles Lakers director of basketball operations Magic Johnson delivered a huge message for NBA icon Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. They were teammates back in the days and their relationship is still strong.

Johnson took to his Twitter account to wish Abdul-Jabbar a very happy birthday. The NBA legend celebrated his 75th birthday and Johnson really wanted to make it special.

“Happy 75th birthday to a legend, champion, Hall of Famer and my Showtime teammate @kaj33! Have a magical day!” Johnson wrote.

We couldn’t agree more. Abdul-Jabbar is one of the best players in the NBA. He is a real legend and a champion. Young players look up to him following his example.

Abdul-Jabbar and Johnson spent a decade together. They won a lot of games with the Los Angeles Lakers, winning five titles.

It’s interesting to note that Abdul-Jabbar was already an established star when Johnson entered the NBA. Johnson was a first-round pick in the 1979 NBA Draft. Abdul Jabbar was playing his best basketball. Young Johnson had a really great role model. He embraced his role in LA and they did a lot of great things on the basketball court. They made history every time the Lakers hit the court.

Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar motivate LeBron, Lakers

Abdul-Jabbar’s playing days are over but he is heavily involved in the NBA. The NBA legend has a lot of experience under his belt. He has seen pretty much everything you can ever imagine. Abdul-Jabbar follows every move the Lakers make.

LeBron James’ arrival in Los Angeles motivated Abdul-Jabbar to discuss his true potential in Los Angeles. Abdul-Jabbar was here to praise LeBron and everything he has accomplished in his career. He also criticized the four-time NBA champion for his attitude during the pandemic. LeBron didn’t make anything to encourage people to get the COVID vaccine. He also didn’t like LeBron’s Instagram post about COVID, flu, and common cold.

Abdul-Jabbar is well aware of the fact that LeBron is an incredible player. He trusts his true potential and the Lakers could really win a few more titles under his dominance.
