The Golden State Warriors are on the cusp of completing perhaps the greatest season in NBA history.     

They won a record 73 games in the regular season and are now just two wins away from bagging their second straight championship.

But NBA legend Earvin “Magic” Johnson believes his “Showtime” Lakers of the '80s would beat Stephen Curry and company.

That's what Magic said in a tweet as he responded to the statement of Golden State All-Star Klay Thompson that the Warriors are better than the Showtime Lakers.

Klay's father, Michael Thompson -- who was a backup center for Magic's team -- also said his son's team would beat the Lakers, leading to Magic's response.

Magic insists their fast breaking style of play would wear down the Warriors, adding the Warriors would have trouble guarding him and fellow Laker legends James Worthy and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. -- ANC, Top Story, June 8, 2016
