In an interview with Nima Zarrabi of Slam Online, All-Star guard, Paul George, says Pacers team president and former Celtics legend, Larry Bird, can still shoot and left the team speechless when he picked up a ball that rolled to him during practice, made 15 shots, and just walked out as if nothing happened.
SLAM: I believe you had talked about seeing Larry shoot in the gym.
PG: 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.
SLAM: How did you and the rest of the team react?
PG: We were speechless. We didn’t know whether to keep shooting or just to end practice. It was sweet, man.
