    Default What should Bird wear?

    Diamond Dave and myself were talking today and the topic of what Bird should wear on the court if he does accept Paul George's invitation to help him.

    He said he would have no problem at all with Bird wearing his old Boston warmup and it took me all of about .00000001 seconds to find the very notion of a Celtic outfit being worn in a place reserved for our team offensive.

    But then I thought him wearing a Pacers warmup would be almost as offensive.

    So then I thought what about wearing an ISU warm up. I thought that might be kind of cool and would give the school a much needed boost.

    But then I really liked the idea of him just wearing his turtleneck and jacket with fancy shoes with the attitude of "I'm so damned good I don't need an outfit".

    What do you think he should wear?

    His old Boston jersey, complete with short shorts.

    Either his old uniform, pacer practice gear, or street clothes

    I think Bird should go nude. That way, even if the dunk is not memorable, no one will ever forget it anyway.

    I don't care a lot about what he wears but I went with street cloths. I think if he wears any nba uniform it would take away from Pauls moment. I think it's really cool that PG asked him to help. I hope he does, the more fun Bird has this year the better the chances of his return.

    Clearly I am not old enough to remember MSA getting invaded by Bird fans back in the 80's. Therefore I am not nearly as resentful as some who had to live through it. However I do recognize that Larry Bird is one of the most recognized and reveared players in NBA history. He is completely synonymous with the Boston Celtics. Simply wearing a Pacer suit or ISU outfit is not going to stop anyone one from associating him with the Celtics. I mean its all-star weekend, and Bird himself has some historic all-star moments there in his Celtics gear.

    It's gotta be street clothes or the celtics uni. If it were just a Pacers dunk contest in the Fieldhouse, then ok give him some Pacers warm-ups or whatever. Being that this is the national stage, and it's NBA, celtics stuff makes the most sense.

    It should be the old Celtics warm-ups, what he always wore for the 3-point contests he was in.

    So is the idea...that Paul George jumps over Larry Bird in a Celtic uniform...and jams it?

    I could watch that on replay for 24 hours straight...

    PG should come out in a different uniform just for this specific dunk and it should be our retro jersey plus short shorts. Bird should come out in the retro Pacers warmup suit that you all love so much. I also wouldn't mind if Larry wears his old Boston uniform/warmup.

    For personal, biased and completely wanting to get pub for my school...I think he should wear the Powder Blues, short shorts and all...maybe even grow his stache back

    If I had my way Paul George would wear the throw backs with Dr. Dunk wearing his uniform passing him the ball. Of course nobody but a very select few of us would even know who he was.... but in my mind it rocks.

    Also, if Bird wears his old Celtics warmups he should be handed the mic and say "so which one of you guys is gonna come in second?"

    No, nothing official. That's why I said "if" he accepts.

    Yeah thats an excellent compromise, however I don't envision an old out of shape Larry coming out sleeveless.
