http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=06Wb0...ature=youtu.be

Larry Bird abusing Kelly Tripucka and the Pistons in pivotal Game 5 (series tied 2-2) as he scored 43 points on 17/33 FG with 17 in the fourth quarter alone...

Bird also grabbed 13 rebounds and dished out 6 assists... Basketball Jesus in the middle of his prime...

He just abused the Pistons ('till '87 when he started to cave to the back injuries)

MJ is the perfect basketball player.

Bird is the perfect example on how to play basketball.

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.
