If you weren't aware of it already, here's a heads-up about an outstanding new HBO documentary.
It's maybe the best one they've done yet, and that's saying something.
Magic and Bird: A Courtship of Rivals is simply fantastic. It's a look back at how Larry Bird and Magic Johnson came up through the collegiate ranks, probably saved the NBA in the 80's, and have gone on to become great friends in the present day.
I have seen a lot of great pro basketball players both on TV and in person in over 40 years as a fan. Magic Johnson is still the best player I've ever seen, and I saw so many of his great battles when the Lakers played the Celtics. I so well remember watching Magic's Michigan State team beat Bird's Indiana State in the 1979 NCAA Championship.
If you haven't seen this documentary yet, I strongly advise it if you are any kind of sports fan.
