Default Was Bird and Magic's relationship real?

I just got to thinking about Larry Bird and Magic's relationship and the era that they played in and I am wondering. Could their relationship have been fake? Could it have just been made up because Larry was white and Magic was black, and that them being considered best of friends in the media was used to try and erase racial barriers? Do you think the NBA payed them off to do it?

That Larry/Magic documentary made it seem like Nike pushed for them to have a relationship, and eventually, the two of them did become friends because of it. Though, all documentaries are propaganda, so take it how you want it.

i heard from a source close to bird that they didnt like each other very much until they participated in a gangbang together and their eyes met as they were both coming. after that they were good friends.

I think they really respect each other but the 'I love you so much' part always seemed forced to me. But off the court Magic seems forced 95% of the time anyway, so what do I know?

they are good friends who respect each other...

- Magic said ....when he and Larry filmed a commercial near Larry's hometown....

- Larry told Magic that both of em' had to go to Mama's house ( Larry's moms) to eat lunch.( it was mandatory).

- they all talked and formed a great relationship that day ( beyond just athlete/sports stuff)

- and through the rest of the 80's and beyond ( off the court) they only strengthened thier friendship.

- Both had alot in common on the court and off.

they may have been forced to fake it at the start, but overtime, a real friendship developed and grew.
