We need a post about something other than politics. Larry Bird turned 60 this week. The NBA social media people created this collection of his greatest plays with commentary about him. Watching it really reminds how jaw-dropping Bird was. It wasn’t so much his shooting, which of course was stupendous. It’s the ball-handling. That is just otherworldly, nearly unmatched in the history of the game. The fact that he was a big guy makes that even more surprising. There’s only a few players his size or larger with comparable skills with the ball (Walton, Sabonis, maybe LeBron come to mind). Just amazing.
