When March Went Mad: Bird vs. Magic
Thirty years ago today a legendary basketball rivalry was born. It all started on a court in Salt Lake City: Indiana State's Larry Bird versus Michigan State's Earvin "Magic" Johnson, in the 1979 NCAA championship game. When these two soon-to-be superstars of "hoopdom" faced off, they changed the sport forever. Sportswriter and on-air analyst Seth Davis is here with his chronicle of this seminal sports moment and the rivalry turned friendship of two giants of the game.
