Larry Bird was on the Dan Patrick Show today, talking about more interesting topics, but somehow the comment above became a thing.

When asked, and it pained him to admit this, Bird admitted Michael Jordan would “kill me” in a game of one-on-one. You can feel the competitive Bird know it, and still hate to admit it.

If this were 30 years ago, it’s a far more entertaining question. Right now, this may put Bird in the same boat with a lot of Bobcat players, but it’s obvious. And moot.
