I always thought Messier and Magic Johnson were similar. Intense competitors in game and fun, happy guys outside of it.

Jari Kurri and Scottie Pippen too. Both were great players on great teams that were overshadowed by one of the greats to play the game.

Bob Probert and Mike Tyson. Both were great scrappers, but due to substances could be erratic. Probert when he was taking cocaine and Tyson when he stopped taking his meds before a fight.

Harold Ballard and George Steinbrenner as owners. Both were tempermental and seemed to enjoy firing coaches. They seemed to be cheap as far as how they operated their facilities too. I also think they both fought putting names on the backs of jerseys due to the perceived loss of revenue from programs.
