The Larry Bird–Magic Johnson rivalry has been taken to a new stage — literally. The new Broadway musical, Magic/Bird, opens later this week, giving basketball fans their latest look at one of the most popular rivalries of all time.
It also happens to come at a time when both are in the news. On one hand, Bird is reportedly leaning toward retirement from his post as the president of basketball operations with the Indiana Pacers. While he may be preparing to walk away, Magic is just getting started with his new endeavor as part of the new Los Angeles Dodgers’ ownership group.
