Apparently there's going to be a Broadway show on the Larry Bird and Magic rivalry.

At the heart of one of the fiercest rivalries in sports, two of the greatest athletes of all-time battled for multiple championships and the future of their sport. Hall of Famers Earvin "Magic" Johnson and Larry Bird could not have been more different; one black, one white; one a quiet small town guy and the other an urbanite with a big smile and Hollywood appeal. Johnson and Bird, went head to head, electrified the nation, reinvigorated the NBA, and turned their rivalry into one of the greatest and most famous friendships in professional sports. With classic NBA footage prominently designed throughout, Magic/Bird transports the audience into the heart of their matchup. From Draft to Olympic Dream Team, the show with a six member cast will premiere on Broadway in a Shubert Theater this Spring.

Brought to you by the Producers and Creators of Lombardi on Broadway, this new play was crafted through conversations with Magic and Bird. Running Time: 90 Minutes ~ No Intermission.

I'm not into that Broadway stuff, but it would be funny to see someone dressed up like Larry, prancing around and singing in short-shorts with a mullet and a moustache. I wonder if they'll get someone to play Kareem. This should be interesting.

They better watch it though, cause this will probably draw a ton of older Celtics/Laker fans... and those teams didn't like each other too much back then lol.

On a side note, is this going to resemble the courtship somewhat? Cause I want to know who's gonna play Isiah Thomas as the **** disturber.

Actually, who are the other 4 cast members? Bird, Magic...
