Larry Joe Bird is an American former professional basketball player, coach, and executive in the National Basketball Association.

Nicknamed “the Hick from French Lick” and “Larry Legend,” Bird is widely regarded as one of the greatest basketball players of all time.

Bird was born on December 7, 1956, in West Baden Springs, Indiana, United States.

Bird entered the NBA for the 1979-1980 season, where he made an immediate impact, starting at power forward and leading the Celtics to a 32-win improvement over the previous season before being eliminated from the playoffs in the Conference Finals.

He played for the Celtics during his entire professional career (13 seasons), leading them to five NBA finals appearances and three NBA championships.

A versatile player at both forward positions, he could play both inside and outside, being one of the first players in the league to take advantage of the newly adopted three-point line.

Bird was rated the greatest NBA small forward of all time by Fox Sports in 2016.

After retiring as a player, Bird served as head coach of the Indiana Pacers from 1997 to 2000.

He was named NBA Coach of the Year for the 1997–1998 season and later led the Pacers to a berth in the 2000 NBA Finals.

In 1975, Bird married Janet Condra.

They remained married for less than a year.

Following an attempted reconciliation, Bird and Condra had a daughter, Corrie, in 1977.

Bird married Dinah Mattingly in 1989.
