Magic, Kareem and Frank honor Jackie Robinson by being awesome together

Dodgers co-owner Magic Johnson and fellow Lakers legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar -- not to mention Hall of Fame outfielder Frank Robinson -- were among those gathered at Dodger Stadium to celebrate Jackie Robinson Day on Monday. KAJ himself tweeted this picture, and we're pretty sure it's the one image we'd most like to Photoshop ourselves into.

MLB players and fans around the country wore Jackie's #42 on April 15 in honor of the 66th anniversary of Robinson's first Major League game.

Frank Robinson (no relation) has broken his own share of barriers. After winning MVP awards in both the National and American leagues -- a feat unmatched before or since -- he became the first African-American manager in baseball.
