Bi-Coastal Basketball to Come to Broadway?

Sports seem to be getting some major traction on Broadway these days.   From Terrence McNally's Deuce, a tennis-themed play (and Angela Lansbury vehicle) from a few years back through the current Broadway production of Lombardi, a football-themed play, sports are increasing their visibility on the Broadway stage.  The next sport up?  Basketball.  Lombardi scribe Eric Simonson is writing a play about one of the most famous basketball rivalries of the last 30 years -- the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics -- through the lens of each team's most famous players, Earvin 'Magic' Johnson of the Lakers and Larry Bird of the Celtics.  For more details, check out the link below!
