Throwback Thursday: Larry Bird

Jim Fitzgerald shared this video to his Fancred profile. It's Larry Bird's epic steal of Isaiah Thomas. It's impossible to click play and only watch the video once.

I moved to Boston in January 2012, and since I no longer had a favorite NBA team (R.I.P. Sonics) I adopted the Celtics. Their history is long, impressive, and watching highlights from days past never gets old.

Once I clicked watched this video I once again went down a rabbit hole of other Celtics highlights, many of which I added to my Celtics album on Fancred.

The video inspired a Fancred Challenge with the theme of Old School Hoops. My submission the the Challenge is below. Seriously... how badass was Bird vs. Johnson?
