While fielding questions about trade speculation surrounding often injured forward Danny Granger, Larry Bird dropped this bomb:
“He doesn’t work hard enough (in the offseason),” Bird said. “He’s not a guy who’ll push himself to the brink like a lot of our guys do. He works hard but he doesn’t push himself. That’s why he starts slow every year and he just works his way back. Now this year, he’s been hurt, so it’s a different deal.”
Bam! Larry Legend is still a ruthless bastard.
What’s Granger to do now? Nothing. He has to take his medicine and go home. Because if there’s an NBA executive who can challenge a players work ethic, it’s Bird.
