Kareem forced his way out of Milwaukee after Oscar Robertson retired, and found himself as the next great Lakers’ center. They did not have the next great Laker’s point guard though. That happened in 1979 when the Lakers draft Ervin “Magic” Johnson out of Michigan State. This was the beginning of showtime. The Showtime Lakers went to 8 NBA finals, winning 5 of them. Magic, perhaps the greatest all around point guard ever, and Kareem, the all time leading scorer in NBA history, definitely make a case for being the greatest duo in NBA history.
