This game started the rivalry between Bird and Magic Johnson that would last through their professional career. The Celtics drafted Bird as the sixth overall pick in the 1978 Draft. Bird was no consulted about his selection with the Celtics. As a rookie, Bird was selected to the All-Star Team and named Rookie of the Year.
