    MJ wasnt wrong for telling him to retire again in 96…that comeback attempt was ugly and sad…K.Malone was wrong for speaking out in 1992 when Magic decided to unretire more or less iimmediately after his stint with the dream team while he was still at the top of his game…when he returned again 4yrs later he no longer resembled that same player wasnt even performing at an all star level in 96 let alone on a HOF or GOAT of PGs level…Ive disliked K.Malone for almost 30yrs now because of that, and in all the time since everything ive learned about him has made me think he was unworthy of being on the team due to how much of a rotten if not toxic human being he is

    I have seen a few magic interviews. This one seems bit rush and dry. Even tho looks quite fun . Jimmy cut him a few times. I think they tried too many contents in one go.

    Missed opportunity: when Jimmy mentioned Jerry Buss could adopt Magic, he could’ve said his name as Magic Buss & the Lakers wore yellow. Missed opportunity.
