Larry and his trash talking wouldíve been amazing! Mics would pick up everything he said, especially in the bubble!
Greatest passer ever
Nobody passes like this anymore.
He and Magic.
Quite fitting that these two were so close on the court and off.
LeBron does it well but not like these two.
One of these days the Lost Civilization of Mars will return to Earth and reclaim these two, lol.
Their games were OUT OF THIS WORLD.
I remember a play Magic made after he briefly came back from retirement. He catches the ball on the elbow with a defender on him, then with his eyes follows a teammate setting up next to the basket, fakes, a pass to him, and the defender bites. Except there was no teammate under the hoop. The defender turned his back to defend an imaginary person while Magic casually drove in for an uncontested layup. You donít see that creativity anymore.
The plays these two made.....
In the dictionaries' definition of "Going Viral" there'd be a picture of Larry Bird and Magic Johnson.
Can you or anyone here imagine these two playing in the Social Media era?
My All-Time Great Trash Talking (and talented) lineup:
PF - KG
SF - Larry
SG - Kobe
PG - Michael
Can't think of a HOF Center (atm) that was a historically great Trash Talker but those four RIGHT THERE would probably send some players to the bench crying I'd bet, LOL.
I think once Kobe and Michael settled on whomever was "The Alpha" then their opponents in this lineup would be in for a LONG game of trash talk.
