The Indiana Pacers and their fans were shaken from their postseason slumber Wednesday afternoon by the announcement that Larry Bird will return as Pacers president of basketball operations. Bird, a former NBA player, coach and front-office executive, stepped down last August citing medical reasons and was replaced on an interim basis by Donnie Walsh. Bird will return to the helm, with Walsh remaining with the team as a consultant. “I'm very surprised and excited,” Pacers guard Lance Stephenson told The Star. “I was thrilled to hear the news, and I can't wait to see him back as president.”
