    Default Monday morning 3/24 in Donnie Walsh's office

    Monday morning 3/24/08 in Donnie Walsh's office

    (knock, knock)...

    Donnie Walsh: come in Larry

    Larry Bird: You wanted to see me, boss?

    DW: Yes Larry, have a seat.

    LB: Please please don't fire me Donnie... those New York writers ain't right, is they?

    DW: Relax, Larry, you're not fired.

    LB: I ain't fired! Yippee!
    Am I winning the pool in the NCAAs?

    DW: No Larry, you're in last place. Behind the secretaries, and their kids. Even the babies...to the point...
    I do have some news. Big news.
    There's gonna be some changes.

    LB: OK... big news, changes...
    Who got busted... drugs? strippers? booze?
    Somebody punched boozed up drugged strippers, with missing fingers?

    LW: No, Larry... nothing like that, in fact, nothing to do with Tinsley at all.
    Remember though how we have divided up duties the past few years, like the NBA draft?

    LB: Yeah, you make the picks, I buy the pizza.

    Did I screw up?
    Sorry...I won't buy the danged pineapple pizza next time, I promise!

    DW: It's not the pizza, Larry, you are the guy making the draft picks from now on.

    LB: I ain't no good at that... I'm better at buying pizza.

    DW: You'll learn, Larry, to evaluate talent.

    LB: Yeah, like I found that great point guard, Sarunas whatever-a-vic-sis

    DW: Jasikevicius!

    LB: gesundheit!

    DW: No, that's his name... oh well...whatever...
    Larry, I'm leaving the franchise and you are in charge.

    LB: I'll get way better pizza next time, I promise, and breadsticks too. Even if I don't got no coupon.

    DW: It's not the pizza., Larry. Forget the pizza. You did great with that.
    I'm just tired of this other stuff, all these nutjob players, overpaid, lazy...

    LB: How am I gonna fix all that?

    DW: You'll have to rebuild, draft well, make some deals.

    LB: Deals? Deals? But you do all that!

    DW: You just pick up the phone, Larry. You can have my phone.
    #1 on speed dial is Peter Vecsey, he's handy for rumor-planting
    #2 is Indy Star, in case you need fluff pieces,
    #3 is Isiah, for you to dump huge contracts (better hurry to use that one),
    #4 is the team bail bondsman,
    #5 is REALLY good pizza,
    #6 is for ordering cigarettes by the case,
    #7 is this guy named Uncle Buck who always has good ideas,
    #8 is Herr Stern,
    #9 the drug rehab center.
    The other numbers are some of my favorite GMs, and I have all their numbers written down too.

    LB: Wow, I can have your phone! Golly... it's got a buncha buttons, and lotsa lights.

    DW: I'm leaving, Larry. You can have my whole office.

    LB: Wow.. (looks around)... You got winders. I like winders to see out... cool. And your chair... looks comfy, but maybe a little smoky.

    DW: It's all yours, Larry. The office, but most importantly, the job. You can do this. Bring the Pacers back to greatness.

    LB: I'll call McHale and see how he done it in Minnesota.

    DW: Larry, Minnesota isn't really any good, actually, no good at all. They suck and McHale is clueless.

    LB: OK, I'll call and ask Ainge then. They're good.

    DW: Well, in Boston they have lots of superstars that they acquired with young talent. We are miles away from there.

    LB: I ain't gonna ever figger this all out myself, can you help me?

    DW: I'm leaving, Larry, so... no.

    LB: I'll order you pizza every week!

    DW: no!

    LB: beer!

    DW: no!

    LB: Any leftover exess strippers from Tinsley's parties... or the funny smelling stuff that Tinsley and Harrison leave stashed in their lockers, and Parrish back in the day...

    DW: no!

    LB: smokes... I'll get you lucky strikes!

    DW: by the case?

    LB: sure, one case a week... then I can call you... when?

    DW: A case a week gets you a call a week, for 5 minutes.

    LB: Can I call on draft night, while we're on the clock?

    DW: Sure Larry.

    LB: Me and you was a good team, huh... like when you got us Danny Granger and I got us deep dish pepperoni... with a coupon!

    DW: Good times they were, Larry. Mighty good times.
    This afternoon we have to face the press.

    LB: OK, I can do it. Don't forget our deal. Where do I send the Lucky Strikes... where you gonna be at?

    DW: Isiah's old office at Madison Square Garden.

    LB: Wow. New York City... (whistles...)...
    You must got even more big ole winders in your new office, right?

    DW: Yes, lots of windows, lots of lights on the phones, comfy chairs, and even more nutjob players, overpaid, lazy head cases, but I get lots of cash.

    LB: Wow, you gonna run the Knicks... cool. Maybe we can make some deals!

    DW: (Chuckles) sure Larry, sure. Call me! I'll take over #3 on speed dial. If I know you... you will drive a hard bargain, hey, hey...

    LB: Well, good luck to you Donnie.

    DW: You too, Larry, good luck... (under his breath..."You're gonna need it")

    (Hugs)

    “People talk about how quiet he [McKey] is, but he’s really been helpful. He gives a lot of insight to players in how to guard certain teams and what their weaknesses are. The whole team listens to him, and it makes my job a lot easier. Having players like him is what pro basketball is all about for me.” —Larry Brown

    Very nice.

    It's a good thing Larry had to go to Donnie's office. Ask Gnome, Larry has a secret bat cave without a name plate.
    You know how hippos are made out to be sweet and silly, like big cows, but are actually extremely dangerous and can kill you with stunning brutality? The Pacers are the NBA's hippos....Matt Moore CBS Sports....

    That was pretty good pacertom. I was actually picturing Bird saying all of that.

    Was that how Larry really sounds or are you just using the lack of grammar we see on this site so often?
    The best exercise of the human heart is reaching down and picking someone else up.

    Since I grew up on a farm in rural southern Indiana, lots of my own relatives talk a lot like Larry Bird, including my Dad.

    Most of them are purdy smart, too.

    When they clean the house, they do indeed "warsh the winders" and say things like "dadgummitt..."

    I done seen where they're runnin' a special down at Delbert's AutoBody & Spa.

    An oral change is only $12 iffen you get your chain saw sharpened at the same time, or if you drop off Aunt Bernice for her mud facial with Delbert's wife Henrietta.
