Magic Johnson once again had nothing but good words to say about the superstar of the Los Angeles Lakers LeBron James.

Johnson believes James will be the MVP of the league this season if he keeps playing at such high standards.

“If LeBron James continues to play like he is right now, there’s no doubt in my mind he’ll be league MVP!” Magic Johnson tweeted.

James (26 points, 9/20 shooting, 5/8 from beyond the arc, six rebounds, seven assists) led the Lakers to a blowout win over the Oklahoma City Thunder (128-99).

James is averaging 24.2 points, 8.3 rebounds and 7.5 assists for the Lakers this season.
