  • Larry Bird 002.jpg The Bird Years: From player to executive

    When it comes to Larry Bird, there’s one franchise with which he’ll always be indelibly associated.
    Bird will live on in eternal Boston Celtic green. He will forever be a symbol of a NBA that exploded in popularity in the 1980s partly because of his considerable exploits.
    But as iconic as Bird is as a Celtic, one could make an argument for similar iconic status with the Indiana Pacers.

  • BIRDweb4.JPG The Bird Years: Rise to prominence

    Do dreams ever come true?
    Does an athlete ever not only live up to his buildup, but exceed it by enormous amounts?
    It may not happen very often now, when athletes are written about and recruited from the time they are in elementary school.
    But it certainly happened in the 1970s, when Indiana State University and Terre Haute got to know Larry Bird and were able to introduce him to the rest of the world.

  • SPT 100413 BIRD 03COACHES.jpg The Bird Years: Small-town beginnings

    Larry Bird is not the only small-town Hoosier basketball success story.
    But his rise to legendary status makes his the biggest.
    Bird’s ascension to stardom at Indiana State is the essence of what March Madness is today. He may have come out of nowhere in the minds of basketball fans around the nation, but those native to Southern Indiana’s Orange County and the surrounding area — and really any pride-filled Hoosier small town — would disagree.
