Larry BirdLarry Bird

Larry Bird re-invented the small forward position, bringing lights out shooting and an uncomparable tenacious desire to be the absolute best every time he stepped out on the court. Bird led the Celtics back out of their dark years and into glory once again, leading them to three NBA Championships while finishing with an NBA MVP award three-straight seasons from 1984 to 1986. In 13 seasons Bird was a 10-time All-NBA player. He showed his greatness right away by winning the Rookie of the Year award in 1980 and was a two-time member of the 50-40-90 club. Only six players ever have shot 50-percent from the floor, 40-percent from three and 90-percent from the line in a season. Bird finished his career with 21,791 points, averaging 24.3 per game), 5,695 assists (6.3 apg) and 8,974 rebounds (10 rpg). Bird was a member of the Dream Team, winning an Olympic Gold Medal in 1992.
