It was one of the biggest rivalries in sports history. It started in their college years and went all the way to the pro court.

It was between the L.A. Lakers’s Earvin “Magic” Johnson and the Boston Celtics’s Larry Bird.

Between the two of them, they won eight NBA titles and six MVPs. The rivalry produced a video game, commercials, a tear-jerking documentary and now a new play – “Magic/Bird” – which opens on Broadway tomorrow. It’s about how they went from being each other’s biggest competitors to best friends.

Zoraida sits down with Magic to talk about the play, his legendary career and his off-court battle with HIV. He also weighs in on the controversy over the Trayvon Martin case, and the outpouring of support from current NBA players.
