  • 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.

  • 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.

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

    But his rise to legendary status makes his the biggest.
