Talking About Practice With Bird
While some stars can roll out of bed and be successful, that was never Larry Bird’s style. Said Bird, “I don’t know if I practiced more than anybody, but I sure practiced enough. I still wonder if somebody – somewhere – was practicing more than me.” All that practice paid off: Bird and Steve Nash are the only players in NBA history to finish multiple seasons shooting at least 50 percent from the field, 40 percent from 3-point range and 90 percent from the free-throw line.
