When you think of basketball in the 1980s, two names immediately come to mind: Larry Bird and Earvin 'Magic' Johnson. This HBO Sports documentary delves into the fierce rivalry--and unlikely friendship--between the two from the 1979 NCAA Championship game through their decade of NBA dominance, when the pair won three MVP awards each and a combined eight titles. In addition to intimate insights from Bird and Magic themselves, interviews include Pat Riley, Kevin McHale, Cedric Maxwell, Michael Cooper, George Fox, Evelyn Johnson, Mark Bird, Arsenio Hall, Ted Shaker, Bryant Gumbel, Jackie MacMullan, Charles Pierce and Steve Springer.
