Magic Johnson says he hates the fact that Michael Jordan and Isiah Thomas still don’t see eye-to-eye.
“I don’t like it, I think they should be done with that,” Johnson said on the All The Smoke podcast. “Listen, we played when we played. We all had to dislike each other to win a championship. We all had to do what we had to do.
“But now, what Michael is doing is incredible. To be an owner in the NBA. His shoe is still No. 1. I mean, you can put all those guys’ shoes sales together; they can’t even mess with Michael Jordan’s shoes. And so and then, Isiah is a businessman himself, all the things that he’s doing. So, why are we still right living in the past?”
Co-host Matt Barnes said that only Magic has the power to fix their tainted relationship.
“I’m definitely gonna try man, because they should be past it,” Johnson said. “They’re my boys. So, I guess I’m gonna have to be the one to bring them together.”
Johnson has led by example in this regard, famously ending his own beef with Thomas in emotional scenes five years ago.
