We try not to get into rumor mongering around here. We really do. So apologies for now running a fourth story in the past month about speculation regarding Larry Bird’s future with the Indiana Pacers. But two major outlets have said he is for sure done running this team after this season ends. And now, twice, Bird has refuted such claims.
Today, in response to a report by Ken Berger of CBS Sports again claiming he is finished, Larry reiterated the fact that he has not yet made up his mind to Indianapolis Star reporter Mike Wells.
“Once again, no decision has been made,” Bird said by phone. “I’ll sit down with my owner at the end of the season and we’ll talk about things.”
I promise this will be the last report on this topic until Larry says something definitive.
