Larry Bird ("Put Some Respect on Larry Bird's Name") NBA Legends

  • Published on: 23 October 2019
  • It's just nutts to me how people act like Bird wasn't the best small forward ever by far!!! Bird is underrated believe it or not...he was an innovator at the position in many ways but as the years go by people tend to forget or haven't done they're homework and just talk gibberish like Bird wouldn't average 35 pts 13 reb and 11 ast per game (year in year out) with these rules today come on....STOP IT! There are only a hand full of players today that would persevere under those old stressful conditions back when it was more for the love of the game than "The Bag" My Dudes Bird is a Basketball God of the highest power and don't you forget it!

    I always tell people that when God made Michael Jordan, he took Larry Bird, gave him a 48 inch vert and amazing athleticism and made him black.

    The king's of sports are the guys that are great but also make their teammates play great as well. Bird, Magic, Montana, Jordan, Gretzky , and number one of all time Mr. Brady. Period.

    How's this for accomplishments , before Birds time, Bill Russell and the Celtics had a stretch of 11 NBA championships in 14 years c'mon.

    Bird, Mchale, and the Chief Robert Parish , best front three of all time, in their prime.

    I would guess Im one of very few guys who actually believe Isiah.At the very least I dont think he ment it, either he was joking or he was just talking shit as you do in high stakes competitions.First of all, if he meant it that would mean Isiah himself admits to getting absolutely destroyed but "just another black guy on countless occasions.Thats severely discrediting himself which makes no sense.He also openly admits later on that Larry is a top tier talent.That seems like a bit much if he didnt actually think so, he couldve gone with half the praise and gotten away with it if he was just trying to downplay his own comment.Isiah was a combative little fakker and I highly doubt that was restricted to on court behavior.Im not some massive fan of Isiah or anything, I just look at what really happened and try to draw the most logical conclusion from it and from what this looks like, I dont think that was a comment Isiah actually meant or believed in.He was just trashing one of his biggest adversaries cuz thats what you do... or did back then atleast

    29:15 There is a lot of c🦝nery going on this segment. Thomas and Rodman knew exactly what they were saying. This was in the the Rodman movie it's always frustrating when you lose. Bird is a top ten player of all time. With all dude respect to Rodman sportsmanship doesn't make you a better player.

    If Isaiah Thomas was white.He would be Beat Red. They schooled for you sure.Cause he was Singing a Different Song . I'm a kiss that bootie, you heard, I'm a kiss that bootie. Mr Byrd .

    Man the way Kareem speaks of Bird should tell you everything you need to know. As a overall player Bird would always be the 1st name on my fantasy draft.

    Bird needs respect put on his name?! When players like Jordan say he was the best ever at his position.....not to mention the countless other greats who sing his praises....many saying they'd take him over Lebron.....how much more respect can you put on a guys name?! Anyone who doesn't know about Bird isn't a real fan of the game. Also Bird and Magic had perhaps the biggest impact on the making the NBA the massively popular sport it became.

    Players today get a hang nail and have to be pulled out of the game. Players today would never match up to the players in the 80's and 90's

    Larry is such a ball-breaker... lol.. i think, after actually hearing his response to Isaiah Thomas' jabs, other people were simply making drama... remember, Larry is a world class smack-talker. Believe he can take it... one of the toughest to play the game, in the toughest era of the game.. real talk.

    I like to think of "the Mt Rushmore of..." for stuff like this. Hard to argue that Larry wouldn't get to the mountain top.

    Sadly, the game has changed and is no longer as physical as it was back during this era. If you look at someone wrong in todays game they call a foul. That's not taking anything away from the great players of today, but I think basketball would be greater if they played old school rules. The players would adjust and it would make for a much more entertaining game.

    I don't think we will ever see anyone like him again. With what God give him he made the most of it. He wasn't the fastest, quickest or tallest, just the smartest basketball IQ ever who played the game! Thank you Larry I will always treasure you! Though I never personally met you.

    When someone says "put some respect on XYZ's name", I never quite understood what that meant? How should I accomplish that, do I spread it on like peanut butter to a piece of bread? Oh well, illiterates trying to wax ceremoniously is always fascinating to observe.

    I moved to Boston late in 1982. While not being a huge B B fan , I started watching a game at the pub. I noticed people there were crazy about sports so I asked the guy next to me whatever happened to that curly haired blonde guy from Indiana named Bird? I said I watched him in college ball and he could shoot from anywhere on the court. The man replied, “look up, we got him”. I enjoyed 10 years of Celtic greatness and still have yet to see a BB player play with all of his heart like Larry Bird. Still my favorite of all time.

    It sucks but I feel like praising Bird’s greatness is similar to praising Eminem where it must be because I’m white. Not even a Eminem fan but to say the guy isn’t talented is ridiculous. Bird is a beast, crazy to think he had a major injury to derail his career. Maybe not the most athletic guy on the court but was so damn crafty that it didn’t matter, which to me is the only legitimate comparison to Luka.
