Picture of Larry Bird Superstar
Larry Bird played with his mind as much as he played with his athletic skills.
He was not the fastest runner on the basketball court. He was not anywhere near being a jumper. Larry Bird was a mastermind.
He knew how to pass. He knew who to pass to and when. He knew how to pass the ball behind his back to a player he could not see. His passes were bullets and they were also gentle touches that always resulted in a score.
He brought the Boston Celtics to a new level of excitement during the 1980's. He worked with a team of men who together brought home more NBA Championship banners to the then called Boston Garden.
Larry Bird was a gentleman who never caused controversy off the court. He appreciated other skilled basketball players and always brought his game to a higher level when the competition was tough.
Larry Bird is the Best NBA Player ever.
