Once upon a time, in a town lost in the middle of nowhere in the American outback, there was a funny little guy who lived with his parents and his five brothers and sisters.
He was a blond kid with pale blue eyes that seemed to pierce you at first sight and in which one can see, from childhood, an inflexible will to go through with his choices.
This kid with a pout and a sparkling look is Larry Bird, and it is in French Lick, hardly more than a criterion point on a map of the United States or even of Indiana, that his legend takes its source.
Larry Joe Bird was born on December 7, 1956, in West Baden, Indiana, and grew up in French Lick, a few miles from his hometown. As a student at Indiana State University, he revitalized the Indiana State University, basketball team.
The team won thirty-three games and lost only one game in 1979. He ended the 1979 season with a loss to Michigan State University in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (N.C.A.A.) championship game, the first meeting between Larry Bird and “Magic” Johnson.
The rivalry between these two basketball giants would significantly increase the popularity of basketball in the U.S. during the 1980s, with matchups between the Boston Celtics and Johnson’s Los Angeles Lakers being a staple of N.B.A. life at the time.
Selected by the Boston Celtics after his first year at Indiana University (1978), Bird did not turn professional until the 1979-1980 season. He then received the rookie trophy of the year (best rookie of the year).
The team, which had been moribund the previous year (29 wins and 53 losses), went on to win 61 games and reach the Eastern Conference finals that season – one of the biggest turnarounds in N.B.A. history.
During his thirteen seasons with the Celtics, Larry Bird built his reputation as one of the best players in N.B.A. history.
He was known for his unwavering confidence and ability to make last-minute baskets, qualities that made his mere presence on the court intimidating to the opposition.
Bird won his first N.B.A. title with the Celtics (the 14th in the club’s history) in 1981; Bird would be N.B.A. champion in 1984 and 1986.
He participated twelve times in the All-Star Game, which brings together the best basketball players in the N.B.A., and was elected three times in a row (1984, 1985, 1986) most valuable player (M.V.P.) of the N.B.A.
Olympic champion with the Dream Team in 1992, Larry Bird ended his playing career in 1993; he then took a position in the Celtics management.
In 1997, he was named head coach of the Indiana Pacers and was voted Coach of the Year after his first season. Larry Bird stepped down in 2000 and took on a new leadership role with the Pacers three years later.
