Why See Magic/Bird?

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.
