Larry Bird once hit 15 straight shots at a Pacers practice

Larry Bird

There are few people that will doubt the shooting stroke of Larry Bird and it’s stories like the below one that Pacers forward Paul George told the folks over at Slam Online to further Bird’s legendary status.

SLAM: I believe you had talked about seeing Larry shoot in the gym.

PG: He picked a ball up that had rolled over. He rolled up his sleeves and made about 15 in a row and just walked out like nothing just happened. It was the craziest thing I’ve seen.

SLAM: How did you and the rest of the team react?

PG: We were speechless. We didn’t know whether to keep shooting or just to end practice. It was sweet, man.

There are few like Larry Legend….
