More than three decades after the two basketball legends arrived on the national stage, Magic Johnson and Larry Bird are about to appear on a literal stage -- as the two lead characters in a new Broadway play.

The story of the leading Laker and Celtic star -- their rivalry, their friendship and everything in between -- will be the subject of "Magic/Bird," a new show opening in April.

"I guess it's the real Showtime," Johnson told the AP.
