Remembering that Larry Bird is the mastermind behind the Pacers

Remembering that Larry Bird is the mastermind behind the Pacers

NBA.com’s David Aldridge has a fantastic column on how Larry Bird built the Indiana Pacers: It was Bird that traded for Roy Hibbert on Draft night in 2008, a center prospect considered so slow and so heavy that other teams picking just ahead of Toronto — which took Hibbert with the 17th pick and then [...]

Funny outtakes from AT&T’s Legends commercial

Funny outtakes from AT&T’s Legends commercial

Here are some more laughs from Larry Bird, Bill Russell, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Magic Johnson while shooting their new AT&T ad campaign, “It’s not complicated.” In this clip, Russell mocks both Magic and Larry as they fumble through lines. Bird also plays duck-duck-goose. Kinda. If you haven’t seen them, John posted a couple of the [...]

Ron F, or “Red Auerbach” as he’s known on Twitter, is a lifetime Celtics fan from Solana Beach, California. I came into contact with Ron through Red’s Army and the Twittersphere.

Happy Birthday Larry Legend

Happy Birthday Larry Legend

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 [...]

Jackie Mac “Rajon Rondo: All grown up”

Jackie Mac “Rajon Rondo: All grown up”

Jackie MacMullan posted a great piece over at ESPN Boston about how Rajon Rondo is starting to “grow up”. If there’s been one complaint about Rondo from C’s fans over the past few years, it’s been his maturity, or lack thereof at times. Jackie talks about how Rajon has “emerged from his own self-imposed exile”. [...]

Missing Larry, and what he represents, 20 years later

Missing Larry, and what he represents, 20 years later

This still bums me out. I’m so happy Larry Bird doesn’t play today.  Somehow, some way, people would over-analyze him, overreact to him, and over-emphasize things that aren’t important about him. The back injury that ultimately shortened his career?  He hurt it putting up a retaining wall at his Indiana home… when he easily could [...]
