    Finger looks fine, but look at that smile! Looks like he just won the super bowl.

    Now that he's got his 1,000 yards, let's not see him play running back or wide receiver anymore.

    RW is 100% correct on how Larry Bird mangled his finger. I remember reading about this in the Globe a short while after it happened. I forget if it was a line drive that he tried to catch with two hands or a throw he tried to catch with two hands. Either way, it did permanently bend one of the fingers on his shooting hand before he ever played a game for the Celtics. It makes you wonder what his shooting % would have been if this had never happened...not that it was that bad in the first place!!

    Larry Bird rarely ever missed a shot when it mattered. I don't see how he could have done any better.

    My favorite Bird quote was when he scored his 10,000th point. After an ovation that seemed to last forever the crowd finally went silent and Bird responded with "if I knew it was going to be such a big deal I would have done it sooner."

    Jerry Garcia had a pretty good run.

    Page 68-69 in the Bird/Magic book. Larry was in left field and the ball mangled his index finger. Shattered knuckle. Surgery. Bone chips. Pins. Bird hadn't signed his rookie contract yet. Bird worked on his new shot. Red heard and put Larry through a workout. Larry was the same player. Red let Larry sign the contract. Incredible

    That'll be a 4 game suspension and 1 mil fine just for saying that and of course no real proof is warranted by goodell* & 345 park ave*

    I didn't know that Brady had such small hands.

    Torry Holt is another good one:

    I remember reading somewhere this is especially common with WRs, byproduct of catching a ton of bullets over a lot of years.

    It's like Larry did everything he could to sabotage his career (like throwing out his back shoveling gravel for his mom's driveway) but he was so good he was an all-time great anyway.

    Think about it....

    If Larry neglected his finger and not have the surgery to fix it, he would not have been the player he became and basically been a role player his career.

    Jeez.. i feel like with medicine the way it is, they should be able to reconstruct your finger back to normal??

    I mean, some of these guys have the money to do it, wouldnt you want to spend some of that on getting your bodyparts to work again?

    May be only interesting to me, but it looks like he's posing in the Claritate Dextra "the right hand is clear" pose of the MacBrady coat of arms.

    But being a Bird does, as you know.
