Nowadays, they are competing for the No.1 spot. While the league has so many different stars nowadays, it all dates back to Magic Johnson and Larry Bird. Those two came in the league in the 80s, and created a rivalry not matched till this day.

It is worth noting that they played for two of the most storied franchise in the NBA, the Lakers and the Celtics.

Bird and Magic raised the bar of popularity of the league in the 80s. Then Jordan came in and he made the league even bigger than it is. And while they were rivals on the court, they were good friends off the court.

Magic and Bird played against each other in three Finals. Bird won one, and Magic won two of those. In total, Magic and the Lakers won five titles in the 80s, while Bird and the Celtics won three titles. This documentary takes an in-depth look of their rivalry.
