The Greatest Trash Talker Ever: Larry Bird

From a story on by Jayson Jenks headlined “‘You wouldn’t believe what he said: The greatest trash talker ever, Larry Bird”:

Michael Jordan once said, “Larry Bird is the greatest trash talker and mind-game player of all time. He taught me everything I know about getting in folks’ heads.”

That was reason enough to call 17 of Bird’s former teammates and opponents and ask for their best trash-talking stories about Larry Legend.

Leo Rautins, opponent: I say this in the utmost complimentary way: Larry was a prick.
