Everyone here at Red’s Army would like to wish Larry Bird a happy 56th birthday. It’s nearly impossible to put what Larry’s done for the Boston Celtics and the game of basketball into words. Larry will always be remembered for his clutch shooting, hard-nosed work ethic and leading the Boston Celtics to NBA Championships in 1981, ’84 and ’86. Bird simply dominated during those years, also winning the NBA’s MVP award 3 years in a row, from 1984-1986.
You can check out all of Bird’s accomplishments over at the Celtics Legends archives. Enjoy this great mix that I found on You Tube and a photo gallery that I put together of #33.
