More NBA Musicals, Inspired by 'Lombardi' and 'Magic/Bird'?

Inspired by the announcement that Magic/Bird, a new play about legendary NBA rivals Magic Johnson and Larry Bird (written by Lombardi playwright Eric Simonson), is headed to Broadway in 2012, ESPN's Page 2 has imagined some other ways the famed Lakers and Celtics teams of the Magic-Bird era could be brought to Broadway. Check out a few of the potential Playbills below:Thoroughly modern millie-thoroughly modern riley

West side story-jerry west story

Phantom of the opera-phantom of the skyhook

This is just a sampling our favorites, but check out the complete list of possible Playbills (with sample song lyrics) on Page 2.
