Scott Underwood: November brings back Larry Legend

(Continued)

I was just entering my teenage years in the late '70s when Bird was burying jump shots and opponents at Indiana State. I played basketball and my parents were both ISU grads, so Bird naturally became revered in our household. My dad eventually put his money where his heart was, buying stock in the Celtics.

After taking last year off, Bird returned to the Pacers' front office this year. The team is off to the best start, 7-0, in franchise history and is the only remaining unbeaten team in the NBA. Bird is the primary architect of the Pacers roster.

Yes, it's great to be a basketball fan in Indiana in November — whether you're ruminating on past glory or anticipating the future!
