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 Bird still dominating like it’s 1986

Larry Bird has been named the NBA’s Executive of the Year. While Larry Legend probably doesn’t give a crap, this honor puts him in a rare club: The Legend’s trophy shelf was already full. Make room for another. The NBA announced on Wednesday that Indiana Pacers president Larry Bird has been named 2011-2012 Executive of the Year. [...]
