Re: Larry Bird Greatest Games: 43 Points vs Pistons (1985 ECSF Game 5)
Btw…. I don't intend this to be racist (although it sounds like it).
Didn't Bird light up when he was guarded by a white player?
Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe I remember reading a quote of Bird saying "I have a white guy on me" in a demeaning manner. As if to say, "it's me all day".
I'm from L.A. and in my prime, I'd think to myself "I got a Mexican guarding me, I got this" every time.
