Magic Johnson convinced of Knicks star Jalen Brunson’s top-5 status after historic Game 4

Hall of Famer Magic Johnson is never one to shy away from having his say on social media when it comes to the Association. He’s often opinionated about his beloved Los Angeles Lakers, but on Sunday night he couldn’t help but praise New York Knicks guard Jalen Brunson.

The former Villanova standout scored a mind-boggling 47 points in a Game 4 win over the Philadelphia 76ers in the City of Brotherly Love, putting his team up 3-1 in the series. In the Magic’s eyes, Brunson is clearly a top-five MVP candidate in 2023-24 after “putting the team on his back”:

“Jalen Brunson of the Knicks put the team on his back and showed people why he is a top 5 MVP candidate this year, scoring a career-high 47 points in the playoffs on the road in Philadelphia to lead his team to a win over the 76ers! “
