Today marks the 25 year anniversary of Larry Bird torching the Atlanta Hawks for 60 points, setting the Celtics single game scoring record (breaking McHale's record of 56 that was set just 9 days earlier). In light of that I thought we could have thread showing some love to one of the greatest players to ever play the game, and one of our own hometown boys, the LEGEND Larry Bird.
Sadly, I never really got to see Larry play because I didn't really start paying attention to the NBA until right when he was in his final season. My only memories of watching one of his games was the 92 Olympics and the Dream Team, when Larry's back was so bad that he really couldn't do much other than lay over on the ground near the bench. The man might be the greatest shooter of all time, and was a triple-double threat on any given night. He's what Dirk Nowitzki aspires to be, but never will. I just wish we could've somehow seen him suit up in the blue & gold instead of that God-awful green & white
