Azeala's representative also confirmed the engagement.
The Lakers won the series in six games.
Here’s how Bird, Magic and Jordan compare with one another:
• Bird played an average of almost exactly one Hall of Fame player per series, and every time he eliminated an opponent, that opponent averaged almost 1.5 Hall of Famers.
• Johnson won more series than Bird or Jordan and eliminated more Hall of Famers than either of them, and for every series he won, he eliminated a little more than one Hall of Famer on average.
• Jordan won more titles than either Bird or Johnson, but he faced far fewer Hall of Famers en route to these wins. His 30 series wins eliminated 27 Hall of Famers, an average of less than one per series win.
How does LeBron stack up?
For the purposes of this debate, how do we figure out how many Hall of Famers James has eliminated?
