HBO has this great show discussing the relationship between Magic Johnson and Larry Bird. I’ve always known that these are two of the greatest players, ever. However, because of my age, I never saw these games. I am shocked at how much these guys simply wanted to be better than the other… This is a real good example of F. Nietzsche’s concept of your best friend actually being your best enemy. These guys hated, hated… each other. Also, if you want an example of mind over matter, pay close attention to Bird pushing through his back pain, for the love of winning.
