I dont know to much about bird outside of his role in the front office, i know he use to be coach but since then he has slid to the front office, i guess the question is since he is a hall of famer and one of the most skilled person to ever play, does he work with the team and the youngsters?. What i mean does he work with them during the season and offseason to help improve their game and such?. I would think he would be a invaluable asset to the youngsters to soak up some knowledge from him.
I believe that in the past he has givin' players (granger) area's he should focus on improving. But other than that, I don't think he has much involvement. Maybe sitting in on practices encourages better work ethic since he's a legend. Who knows.
Because, at his age, he can still outshoot the whole roster so he doesn't want to show them up. May be an urban legend, but I remember reading that he did just that a few years back during a practice.
"But, first, let us now praise famous moments, because something happened Tuesday night in Indianapolis that you can watch a lifetime’s worth of professional basketball and never see again. There was a brief, and very decisive, and altogether unprecedented, outburst of genuine officiating, and it was directed at the best player in the world, and that, my dear young person, simply is not done."
