I always knew Larry Bird was tough and ruthless but these stories are amazing. Â Bird also says that he when he watches old games and he still knows what is going to happen before it happens.
Bill Simmons: You played 43 minutes that year.
Larry Bird: Its alright I get pad for 48.
Larry was a legendary trash talker and while he doesn’t trash talk Simmons, he gets some hilarious comments in.
I donâ€™t know if you have been watching the NBA playoffs but this has been an amazing series. As Dan Wetzel sees it.
Back to Boston for Game 7 â€“ just like the Basketball Gods (Michael Jordan? Larry Bird?) preordained it. You might as well get ready for an overtime or three, because a series this great, with performances this grand, wasnâ€™t meant for regulation time.
There was no other way to conclude what is perhaps the finest non-Finals series in NBA history. Thursday was another masterpiece of endearing endurance, a game with literally everything.
I agree, I donâ€™t think I have enjoyed a playoff series since the Pistons were trying to dethrone the Boston Celtics in the late 1980s and then the Bulls were knocking the Pistons off the block in the early part of the 1990s. I donâ€™t know who will win tonight but the rest of the playoffs will be hard to match this one.
