No wonder your dad loves Larry Bird so much. And no wonder your dad is always trying to throw those tricky passes that aren’t really open but sometimes work. It all makes sense now.

Oh, just my dad? OK, never mind.

  1. Thank God that MerkinMuffly took the time to upload these vids.

  2. Except for the height, Larry Bird just did not look like a basketball player. He looks like an old guy playing at the YMCA, not an NBA Legend. Especially when he was sporting the moustache.

  3. I could seriously watch that all day! It’s all about the one @ 2:45! Unbelievable!

  5. This “basketball” as you call it, is all well and good. But answer me 1 question.

    Are you fine people going to bless us this year with a couple of months of Blank Jones podcasts?

    Sorry if you have posted that info elsewhere… I have been in Nepal for some time. Who is this LeRon James guy? I heard he is pretty good at playing basketball.

    • No Blank Jones this summer as they’re moving out of the Score… There’s something, somewhere, that was said on the blog right after the draft.

  6. “Fancy” is such an ugly unsophisticated word… It doesn’t do justice to one of the most esthetically pleasing players ever.

  7. Larry Legend.! was a great player. In the top 5 conversation of greatest of all time. with Jordan, Magic, Russell, Kareem and Kobe.

    • Replace Kobe with Oscar Robertson, and the world will be restored to its proper balance.
