If you get to about 2 minutes in, after the ridiculous fadeaways, reverse layups, behind the back passes and steals, you can see Larry Bird, straight up scrappin! And he even gets on some of teammates, which is what really makes him a legend, the ability to lead.

It's nothing to a boss.

In 1986, Larry Bird was wearing the most iconic of ’80s sneakers, the Converse Weapon. He would finish with 29 points, 11 rebounds, and 12 assists to lead the Celtics to their 16th NBA Championship.
