In his reaction to learning that Magic Johnson met with LeBron James' associates Rich Paul and Maverick Carter during the Cavs' loss to the Los Angeles Lakers, Stephen Jackson explains why he believes James would best fit with Gregg Popovich, Kawhi Leonard, LaMarcus Aldridge and the rest of the San Antonio Spurs. Where should The King go if he leaves The Land?

STEPHEN JACKSON: Best player in the world. Well, KD was the best player in the world last year. He showed it in the finals.

- OK.

STEPHEN JACKSON: But now, LeBron is definitely the best player in the world, but you can-- you know how they say, one size fits all?

- Yes.

STEPHEN JACKSON: This is this situation with LeBron. He fits anywhere.

- Every team, any team.

STEPHEN JACKSON: We said it yesterday. Church league, YMCA, LA Fitness, anywhere. He fits with anybody.

- Hold on. LA Fitness?

STEPHEN JACKSON: LA Fitness.

- It's going down at LA Fitness now.

STEPHEN JACKSON: You think he's not going to be first pick at LA Fitness? He's first pick at LA Fitness, for sure. He will fit anywhere. I think the whole thing with LA? It's LA. He can sell himself even more. You know? He's going make so much money off the court, like he does already. I think LA's great. But anywhere is great for LeBron. It doesn't matter where he goes.

- So we know--

STEPHEN JACKSON: I like San Antonio.

- There's-- you like San Antonio?

STEPHEN JACKSON: Yes.

- I haven't heard people talk about that league.

STEPHEN JACKSON: I like San Antonio.

- How come?

STEPHEN JACKSON: Because he's never played with a coach like Greg Popovich. I think he's never played with a great defender like [INAUDIBLE]. And the way [INAUDIBLE] is playing right now, I think Paul can help them. The team they have with Popovich at the helm, I think LeBron would be great there.

- So here's the thing--

STEPHEN JACKSON: And he'd have a chance to catch Mike there.
