Welcome to the latest installment in the new era of Top 5 Dead Or Alive. Each week, we’ll ask one of our writers to come up with a definitive list of the five best people, places or things in a particularly subjective category — then, we’ll ask you to tell him who or what is missing from the list. Feel free to be a total dick.
Today, Zach Berger examines the best athletes with animals in their names. Yes, this is a weird category. Yes, his boss made him do it.
Paul George: Larry Bird Almost Shut Down Pacers Practice By Nailing 15 Straight Shots, Leaving Without A Word
We know that Michael Jordan still has game, and could probably re-join the NBA at 50 without missing too many beats. But how about Dream Team teammate Larry Bird? He’s apparently still good enough to leave an NBA team speechless and unsure of whether to continue practicing or just quit altogether.
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.
