A heated interaction between the two reserve bigs.
Larry Bird: “I Can’t Believe My Team Went Soft. S-O-F-T. I’m Disappointed.”
I wasn’t there and don’t even know exactly what Larry Bird means. So this is presented without comment. (image above via Mike Wells tweet)
In his story on Bird’s comments, Indianapolis Star Pacers beat writer added the following.
Those are the strongest words I’ve ever heard Bird say about his team – good or bad – in my seven-plus years of covering the Pacers.
And he ended his story well by framing what this might mean for the Pacers going into Game 6.
Bird has spoken. Now we’ll see if his players respond to being publicly embarrassed – on the court and by their president – or if they’ll curl up in the fetal position in Game 6 on Thursday.
Game 6 is on Thursday at 8:00 pm EST.
