THE BEST: Nothing is more Larry Bird than this play
This is, by far, my favorite Larry Bird moment, and a Top 10 NBA Moment Ever in my opinion. The first time I saw this highlight, I gasped.
It’s one thing to know your shot is short. It’s another to know where the rebound’s headed. It’s a third to instinctually and immediately go for the ball, and just patently absurd to switch hands to get the shot off, and make it.
There are a lot of great plays in the NBA, but you will not find ten better than this. It really is breathtaking.
