They were two of the greatest basketball players to ever play the game and also formed one of the greatest rivalries in sports. The days of Bird versus Magic will forever be remembered as classics on the basketball court. It seems that their rivalry has now taken on a new twist.
Last week we learnt that Magic Johnson was part of a group that purchased the Los Angeles Dodgers and essentially saved the franchise from financial ruins. Not to be outdone by his former hard court enemy, it has come out that Larry Bird is part of a group of investors that is interested in buying the Boston Red Sox.
A price tag has not yet been mentioned, but one can imagine if Magic and his group paid $2 billion for the double blue Dodgers then the Red Sox will likely go in that $2.5 billion range. So far neither of the three current owners, Lucchino, Werner or Henry have commented on the situation.
In case you’re wondering……April Fool’s!!!
