Larry Legend Lights It Up

Throughout his 13 seasons with the Boston Celtics, Larry Bird was the embodiment of work ethic, consistency and excellence.  He thrived in all aspects of his basketball career:  scoring, passing, defending, rebounding…and just being clutch. 


Aside from leading the Celtics to three NBA titles and 10 Atlantic Division wins, Bird racked up a ridiculous list of personal honors and achievements:  he was only the third player (first non-center) to win three consecutive NBA Finals MVP awards, was a 12-time All Star, a nine-time member of the All-NBA First Team and also led the league in free-throw percentage four times throughout his career.


Hands down, one of the most memorable moments of Larry Bird’s career occurred on March 12, 1985, when he set a new franchise record and scored 60 points against the Atlanta Hawks.   Words cannot describe this awesome shooting display, so whether you call him Larry Legend, The Great White Hope or The Hick from French Lick… sit back and enjoy the show!

Oh by the way, after watching the video, this jersey should look familiar…it’s one of our favorites…
