Top 10 Craziest Larry Bird Stories
Former NBA VP of Public Relations Brain McIntyre:
I had about eighty basketballs in my room in Barcelona and had to get the players to sign them all. Bird was the last guy, and he says, “What’s the quickest anyone’s done it?” I said, “Anywhere from eight minutes to twenty.” And Bird said, “I’m going to be the fastest. Time me.” So he signs them, and he throws me the last one: “Okay, what is it?” “Whoa, four and a half minutes!” And he goes, “Yes!” Competitive right to the end.
