The children of the Grace Care Orphanage in West Nairobi, Kenya, are back for another famous sports reenactment, this time taking on the final moments of game 5 of the 1987 NBA Eastern Conference Finals between the Detroit Pistons and the Larry Bird-led Boston Celtics.
Upon hearing that Kobe Bryant thought the 2012 version of Team USA basketball would have a shot to beat the Dream Team, Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley just laughed. Apparently, Larry Bird is laughing right along with them.
Have you ever found yourself in smoky room, with an NBA game serving as background noise, and wondered what some of your favorite basketball greats would look like if they actually looked like their nickname? Like, what if Kevin Durant was an actual Durantula? What if Oliver Miller was an olive?
For those of you that are less than pscyhed for tonight’s offensively challenged battle between Philadelphia and Boston, here’s a way for you to get the juices flowing. If there’s one thing the NBA brass has a knack for, it’s commercials for the NBA Playoffs. This year, they brought back Larry Bird and Magic Johnson to detail just what basketball is about, what it’s all for. Feel the chills, after the jump.
The Pacers were humiliated last night. They kept it close early, then Danny Granger went down… then they melted down. That made Larry Bird unhappy… and he said so, which is rare for him. In their efforts to stay alive and in a living legend’s good graces, it’s not hard to imagine the Pacers ratcheting up the intensity of the series even more.
Magic Johnson and Larry Bird were in New York for the Broadway premiere of Magic/Bird last night, and while they were in town, they also stopped by the Late Show to chat with David Letterman. See that after the jump.
Basketball and Broadway aren’t exactly a natural pair. But neither were Magic Johnson and Larry Bird, subjects of the new play Magic/Bird opening April 11 in New York City. What results isn’t a masterpiece of a production, however the sports elements of the show are rich with both reality and nostalgia.
LeBron James Maintains That LeBron James Is Blamed For Everything, Including You Not Getting Your Preferred Brand Of Milk
Yes, LeBron James is aware Kendrick Perkins called him out for tweeting in awe about Blake Griffin’s dunk over Perkins, and he knows Larry Bird said that to win championships, you’d be better off playing with Kobe than with LeBron. Last night, we found out what LeBron had to say about all this.
Larry Bird recently sat down with Grantland editor-in-chief Bill Simmons for an episode of Simmons’ B.S. Report podcast. The podcast itself isn’t out yet, but a segment of it has been getting a lot of play on TV this morning. That segment: Bird saying that Lebron James is “by far” the best player in the NBA. But.
At the time, the highlights of these videos were the highlights (Michael Jordan dunking with his tongue out was pretty badass to a six-year-old). But not anymore. No, twenty years removed from these defining cassette tapes, the best part of these videos has become the amazing music that accompanies them.
