NBA icons Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Larry Bird and Bill Russell have combined for 25 championships on the court.
Off the court, the Hall of Famers have joined forces in AT&T's "It's not complicated" campaign.
In the outtakes recently released, Laker legend Johnson is prodded by 12-time All-Star Russell after struggling with lines.
"Take your time, don't worry about it," said Russell, who won 11 championships with the Boston Celtics. "No turnovers today."
Abdul-Jabbar, who won a record-six MVP's and nabbed three NCAA titles at UCLA to go along with six championships between the Bucks and Lakers, remained stoic throughout the clip, later pretending to take a shot at "straight man" Beck Bennett.
"Be quiet, little man." said the NBA's all-time scoring leader, prompting the crew to erupt in laughter.
The clip ends with a good old fashioned game between Bird and Bennett.
The winner? Three time NBA champ Bird, of course.

In this clip, Russell mocks both Magic and Larry as they fumble through lines. Bird also plays duck-duck-goose. Kinda.
If you haven’t seen them, John posted a couple of the spots last week.

This is a hilarious photo shop that made me chuckle so I decided to post it. This is what running a blog is all about, doing what you want when you want so why not post a joke about a player who shares those same principles. Not sure who the original poster of this photo is but I found it here.
Back in the year of 2012, a group of Kenyan school kids were made Internet famous for recreating the infamous Bill Buckner play from the 1986 World Series.Well, it appears that idea has become contagious as a group of Kenyan orphans have decided to recreate the infamous "Larry Bird steal from Isaiah Thomas and assist to Dennis Johnson" from game five of the 1987 Eastern...
Magic Johnson, the face of the new Los Angeles Dodgers ownership group and ESPN NBA analyst, took to Twitter in an attempt to encourage fans about the team. The results were... less than reassuring.
Dodger Nation: All I want is for my players to relax and have fun. Once our pitching, hitting and defense comes togetherwe will be great!

Most think of this play when they think of the 1984 Finals, but there was so much more to that victory.
By Cort Reynolds
The 1984 NBA championship series is arguably the greatest Finals in league history.
Definitely the best I have ever seen, and it had everything: great play from all-time great players, drama, controversy, thrilling finishes, multiple overtimes, strategy, conspiracy...
