Off the court, the Hall of Famers have joined forces in AT&T's "It's not complicated" campaign.
In the outtakes recently released, Lakers legend Johnson is prodded by 12-time All-Star Russell after struggling with lines.
"Take your time, don't worry about it," said Russell, who won 11 championships with the Boston Celtics. "No turnovers today."
Abdul-Jabbar, who won a record-six MVPs and nabbed three NCAA titles at UCLA to go along with six championships between the Bucks and Lakers, remained stoic throughout the clip, later pretending to take a shot at "straight man" Beck Bennett.
"Be quiet, little man." said the NBA's all-time scoring leader, prompting the crew to erupt in laughter.
The clip ends with a good old-fashioned game between Bird and Bennett.
The winner? Three time NBA champ Bird, of course.
