Boston Celtics icon Larry Bird is perhaps best known for countless ways he could hang points on an opposing team, finding ways to score that sometimes baffled his defenders, coupled with eviscerating trash talk that broke their spirits at the same time.

All the way back to his days at Indiana State in college, Larry Legend was already using his crafty court vision to lift his teammates.

Renowned NBA draft analyst Ben Pfieffer sat down and broke down some of Bird’s passing film for a recent short.
