If you’ve watched any NCAA Tournament basketball, or really any NBA games, over the past month, you have seen plenty of the AT&T “bigger is better/faster is better” ads, including the one with four Hall of Famers — Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Bill Russell.

Here are the outtakes, courtesy AT&T.

I don’t think anyone was having more fun than Russell. I love that he tells Magic no turnovers.
