Magic and Bird: A Courtship Of Rivals

9 06 2010

The HBO Sports documentary MAGIC & BIRD:  A COURTSHIP OF RIVALS, chronicling the fierce rivalry between basketball legends Larry Bird and Earvin “Magic” Johnson.
The special traces the history of the competition between Los Angeles Lakers immortal “Magic” Johnson and Boston Celtics great Larry Bird, which began 30 years ago when they led their midwest universities to the 1979 NCAA Championship game, through a decade of dominance, when the two won three NBA MVP awards apiece and a combined eight NBA titles.It examines the different cultures that helped shape them and contributed to their unique styles, as well as exploring their unlikely friendship.
“Larry Bird and ‘Magic’ Johnson are basketball royalty,” says Ross Greenburg, president, HBO Sports.  “Their accomplishments speak for themselves at every level, but their intersecting back stories are just as rich and compelling as their championship performances.  We will tell their full life stories and provide an in-depth portrait of their complicated and historic bond.”
Though sharing Midwestern roots and following the same team-oriented philosophy, the introverted Bird (from the small town of French Lick, Ind.) and the extroverted Johnson (from the industrial state capital of Lansing, Mich.) couldn’t be more different in personality.  The two superstars talk about each other at length in the film and provide intimate insights into their remarkable lives.

What else can I say……Oh yea, He has 4 CHAMPIONSHIP Rings… one from this year!!!   so now…  I put my 2 cents in…. continue your hating if you must.
