Larry Bird Causes Celtics Buzz

A blue collar player with a strong work ethic,  Larry Bird was a winner from day one.  His three-point shooting, rebounding, shot blocking, and late-game heroics made him the heart and soul of the Boston Celtic teams of the 1980s.  The Celtics rolled to a 61-20 record in Bird’s first year, and Boston fans were buzzing about a brand of basketball similar to the great Red Auerbach squads of the 1960s.
