I know there has been a LOT of criticism of Bird and his admiration for the European players, but in this, his first solo draft...we see him making moves and taking US players.
It was Walsh who took the Euro in New York...
Was Walsh merely sending Bird over to Europe to get him out of his hair? Was it Walsh who so coveted the European players, but let Bird take the heat for it?
Sorry if this has been discussed, but I thought I would put it out and see what others thought.
