G- Ervin “Magic” Johnson: 1979-1991, 1996 It goes without saying that Ervin “Magic” Johnson is not only one of the greatest Lakers of all-time, but also one of the greatest NBA players of all-time.

The Toronto Raptors (50-31) begin their march back to the Eastern Conference Finals against the Milwaukee Bucks (42-39). The Raptors are clearly the more talented team top to bottom and boasted a much stronger offense (6th ORTG vs 13th in ORTG) and defense (8th DRTG vs 16th DRTG). However, the Bucks have maybe the best player in the series, the “Greek Freak” Giannis Antetokounmpo. Giannis is in the midst of a breakout season with crazy averages of 22.9 ppg, 8.7 rpg, 5.4 apg, 1.7 spg and 1.9 bpg (He is the first player in NBA history to finish top 20 in all major stats). Alternatively, the Raptors poses in my opinion the best Point Guard in the eastern conference Kyle Lowry.
