Larry Bird on Miami's Moves, Kobe Bryant

I saw this today and thought it was interesting, mainly because I didn’t expect Larry’s “favorite player” to be Kobe Bryant. It makes sense seeing as how Mamba is an absolute legend and a cold-blooded killer much like Mr. Legend himself, but I guess I just figured Larry would not be the type of person who has a “favorite player” — or a favorite anything really.

“I watch all the teams and what they did for LeBron, and [the Heat] still have to go through the Lakers with Kobe Bryant out there, who’s been my favorite player for a long time,’’ said Pacers president Larry Bird. “And I don’t think whatever they do in the East is really going to concern him that much.’’

Honestly, I would probably be similarly surprised to hear he had a favorite food or TV show.
