Larry Bird Proves That He's Still Got It During Pacers Practice

Larry Bird can still shoot the lights out.

Indiana Pacers star Paul George recently was interviewed by SLAM Magazine and was asked about Larry Legend shooting in the gym during practice. Apparently, even though Bird has been out of the league for decades, he's still got it.

"He picked a ball up that had rolled over. He rolled up his sleeves and made about 15 in a row and just walked out like nothing just happened. It was the craziest thing I’ve seen."

When asked about his teammates' reaction to the impressive shooting display, George responded:

"We were speechless. We didn’t know whether to keep shooting or just to end practice. It was sweet, man."

You know in his mind Bird was replaying his classic, "Who's coming in second?" moment while shooting in front of George and the rest of the team.

And that's why he's Larry Legend, folks.
