Magic Johnson, Michael Air Jordan and LeBron James the chosen one.

Earvin Magic Johnson was a special player. Magic Johnson had the ability to score from all areas of the floor, but it was Magic Johnson's ability to open up the floor for his teammates that everyone remembers. Magic Johnson and Larry Bird formed the most fierce rivalry in the history of the NBA. Each and every one of us knew that Magic and Larry Bird had taken the game to it's peak....

...well, that was until Michael Jordan came along.

Michael Jordan truly is the greatest of all time!

Michael Jordan is by far the most accomplished basketball player in history.

No one approaches Jordan's number of Finals MVPs.

The legend that Jordan was so dominant that he lost MVP awards because of it is true. The league voters tired of giving the award to the same player every year. Seeing that Jordan was the future of the NBA and Magic Johnson had only received one MVP in his career, they voted Johnson in 1989 and 1990, not to diminsh Magic's accomplishments. Jordan is #1 all-time in total MVP voting, #1 all-time in MVP award shares, and has by far the most total MVPs (Finals, season, All-Star) with 14.

Michael Jordan is the only Defensive Player of the Year in history to lead the league in scoring.

Only Karl Malone has more All-NBA First Team honors (with one more).

Jordan has the most All-Defensive First Team honors in NBA history.

Rookie Michael Jordan led his team in scoring, rebounding, assists and steals, making him the only NBA player in history to do that.

Jordan was an All-Star every year in which he was eligible, and is #2 all-time in selections behind Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

Jordan recorded the only triple double in All-Star Game history in 1997, but did not receive the MVP.

Jordan has more scoring titles than any NBA franchise's entire history. He is the only player aside from Wilt Chamberlain to score 3000 points in a season.

Jordan was the first player in NBA history to lead the league in both scoring and steals. He did it three times.

Jordan led his team to the best regular season and combined regular and postseason records in NBA history.

LeBron James has yet to win a championship, but just like Clyde Drexler and Allen Iverson, LeBron James has led a team to the NBA finals already at his young age. LeBron James is the game's most trancendant star and athlete. When you watch LeBron James play it will give you flashbacks of the "old school game". LeBron James plays the game team first, and he looks for his shot second, similar to a Michael Jordan or Oscar Robertson. LeBron James still has yet to prove that he can win on the big stage, but I do feel in due time he will prove this. LeBron's best season statisticly is better than any current player in the NBA's best season in contrast. This guy truly is on the cusp of taking the NBA over until he retires.

I created the mix with Sony Vegas Platinum studio, FXhome EffectsLabPro, Windows Movie Maker, and MAGIX Movie Edit Pro 12. I also occasionally use Adobe After Effects. (People keep asking me what I use. It depends on how much time I feel like putting into a mix. If I was getting paid for this, I could put even much more detail into the mixes. Right now I just throw 'jabs' at you with my mixes.)

I used the metal gear theme.
