    Larry was the best and smarter than them all. Jordan never beat Larry in any playoff games. LOOK IT UP

    No one will ever convince me that Larry Bird isn’t the GOAT. No one did everything on a basketball court at the level that he did. No one. He was the most complete basketball player ever.

    It’s a shame or huge lack of basketball knowledge to compare LeBron to Larry……😂🤦🏻 First one is a good player ( not more than that ) with the god given physics who play in the very soft league ( wich is NBA today ), the second one is one of the greatest who ever played the game….

    80s and 90s NBA was the best, the best didn’t want to join the best, they wanted to beat the best

    THE YOUNG NBA TALENT FOLLOWERS TODAY COULD NOT EVEN IMAGINE HOW GREAT OF AN ALL AROUND BASKETBALL PLAYER LARRY BIRD WAS. . HE WALKED THE Walk AND DID THE TALK BETTER THAN ANYBODY EVER DID. HE MADE SHOTS, FROM EVERYWHERE ON THE COURT, BEHIND THE BACK PASSES, THROUGH THE LEG PASSES, SHOT MORE CLUTCH GAME WINNING SHITS THAT IS HARD TO DESCRIBE. DEDICATED TO BE THE BEST THAT HE Could AND PROVED IT ON THE COURT. HE WON THE 3 POINT SHOOT OUT CONTEST 3 URS. IN A ROW 1986, 1987, AND 1988. HE WON THE MVP 3 URS. IN A ROW FROM 1984, 1985 AND 1986. I COULD GO ON AND I CAUSE HE WAS JUST THAT GREAT OF A BASKETBALL ALL AROUND PLAYER, BAR NONE THERE WILL NEVER BE ANOTHER LARRY BIRD. GOAT

    I'm white an I'd never even heard of Larry bird until few months ago why was he shut out of basketball past until recently I mean this guy is insane. One of the best ever! And he's white! I mean for me this is a huge thing because all I've ever known is black players to be the best. Hearing black players talk about how good he was is inspiring he really must have been the shit to get there respect

    Mick Jagger had this to say about The Beatles in an interview in the 90s- "The Beatles were so big that it's hard for people not alive at the time to realize just how big they were" And this absolutely applies to Larry Bird as well. Older basketball fans such as myself know how famous, how insanely good Bird was in his career, it is difficult for younger fans to comprehend just how much of an impact Bird had on basketball. You had to be there. Bird was huge, same with Magic. And this without the benefit of cable TV, social media, the internet, cell phones, home computers, etc. Just regular TV, radio, print media, and word of mouth. The country would almost shutdown during the Celtics/Lakers finals. Even in Jordan's first several years in the league, it was all Larry and Magic.

    If you ran your mouth to Larry he would mop the floor with you and run up the score. May be one of the best all around shooters percentage wise of all time.

    “If I had to choose a player to take a shot to save a game, I’d choose Michael Jordan. If I had to choose a player to take a shot to save my life, I’d take Larry Bird.” Pat Riley

    The Tom Heisman quote was later stolen by a sportswriter to use about Bill Russell.Says a lot though that Tom said it about BIRD, given how many years he played with Bill (regional pick in the SAME draft as Bill, retired 4 years sooner).

    Kobe saying “Was Larry really tough to defend? Because he looks slow as shit to me, what am I missing?” Considering that Kobe was taught defence by Gary Payton, and a broken up and close to retirement Larry Bird took Gary Payton to the cleaners, I’d say it was a foregone conclusion that Kobe would DEFINITELY have found out what it was all about if he’d ever gone head to head with Larry. If your mind isn’t in the same place as the guy you’re playing against, then it doesn’t matter how fast you can run or how high you can jump. You’ve already lost. Larry Bird’s mind was always way ahead of his opponents. That’s how he did it. That’s why he could tell them all what he was going to do. He was already there in his own mind. It’s like someone telling you “I’m going to climb this mountain”, and you don’t even understand, you can’t even see that he’s already up there. You don’t believe he can do it. And when he says “told you so”, that’s when you find out. He’s just standing up there laughing at you.

    Larry Bird, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, and a select few others saved basketball. I'm not sure of the time-line, but there was a time when basketball was in the dumps as far as viewership was concerned, they turned it around and made it a primetime sport.

    As a kid I hated the celtics and loved show time, as an adult looking back, I realize the greatness of bird.

    In 1974 Larry Bird was my P.E assistant when I was in the 8th grade and he was a senior at Springs Valley High School. At the beginning of each P.E. class we always ran 10 warmup laps around the gym. One day, a trampoline was set up on the basketball court and there was Larry Bird bouncing on it. As the whistle blew and we reluctantly lined up to run our laps, our teacher (who was also Larry's basketball coach) blew his whistle, and said "Larry is going to take 10 shots while jumping on the trampoline. If Larry makes any shots, each one made will delete a lap that you must run." Coach threw the ball to Larry and right there in front of me and the entire boys Jr. High P.E. class, Larry proceeded to hit 7 out of 10 shots while bouncing up and down on the trampoline, 35 feet away from the goal. Larry set an incredible example for me as a young boy in French Lick, Indiana that helped me through my entire adult career. If you are willing to work very hard and never give up, your dreams can and will come true. Thank you Larry.

    Was it the Trailblazers game where he interrupted the Coach (Maybe KC Jones?) in the huddle and said "Just get me the ****ing Ball!" ? Of course, he probably did that a lot...

    For years two teams dominated the NBA, the Lakers with Magic, Kareem etc and the Celtics with Bird, McHale and Parrish, were so evenly matched. People used to talk about Michael Jordan and the Bulls but they never came close to winning a championship until all those other guys had all retired within a year or two of each other. In the few playoff games to he bulls player Boston Jordan would score his usual 50 or 60 points and Bird only 35, but then McHale scored 33 and Parrish 30 and Dennis Johnson 29 and Danny Ainge 20 and Wedman 15 etc and they all got dozens of assists from Larry. After Jordan the next guy down might have scored 20 points. Jordan was a selfish ball hog, against bad teams they did fine but teams like LA and Boston were loaded up with unselfish guys who were so good at setting a teammate up to score and they won a team. 🐔 could score 40 or more easily but he knew the team did better when they all contributed. The Bulls had their first championship after Bird and Magic were gone. Bird always was in triple figures, he understood teamwork a complete player.

    He's your 2nd favorite player of all time? PLEASE don't tell me LeChina James is first. I can live with Magic or Jordan but to be honest, Larry Bird had an all around MUCH better game than either. If Larry Legend was black, he'd still be considered the GOAT as he was until the 86-87 season when the writers pretty much got sick of a white dude winning MVP all the time and crowned Tragic Johnson MVP 10 seconds into the first preseason game of that season when in all reality, Larry Bird was truly the most "valuable" he had ever been in leading a totally injured team within 2 games of yet another championship and probably would have won it if not for the biased officiating in Game 4 when the Lakers went to the FT line about 24-2 in the 4th quarter. I truly think had the Celtics went back to the cesspool known as LA with a 3-2 lead as they should have, the Celtics would've found a way to win 1 of the final 2 games to win back to back titles that year. Ever since then then refs and the NBA front office have found every way possible to absolutely screw the Boston Celtics in every way imaginable and let the Lakers get insanely lopsided trades and let them totally cheat the salary cap for PC reasons to pass the Celtics in overall titles even though those Minneapolis titles mean jack shit. For insane reasons the Celtics have been branded a racist franchise which is so not true and free agents won't sign there and the NBA rigged lotteries to not let the Celts get Tim Duncan or Kevin Durant. 100% guaranteed. This is a league that should be ignored and the thankfully the ratings have been in the sewer for years now as most people see them for what they are. A bunch a nigger loving, Social Justice, Woke SOBS, including the Celtics Jaylen Brown. I have not watched an NBA game since the rigged 2010 Game 7 in the Ghetto Staples Center and I will never watch a game from this piece of shit, black loving, white hating league ever again. They can go get fucked right up the their asses until it comes out of their liberal mouths. Trump/DeSantis 2024. Clean this shithole up once and for all.

    Jordon's accolades to Larry sure sounded like a lot of self-compliments supposedly from Larry to himself.
