Chad Finn with an An Oral History of Larry Bird’s 60-Point Game against the Atlanta Hawks:
People get caught up in points, but I can’t say it’s in the top 20 of my favorite games. I had games where I scored just 15 or 16 points, but I played excellent basketball in my mind, I did a little bit of everything. I didn’t rebound or pass much.– Larry Bird
Bird was my favorite player growing up because of his focus on the game, not the details that didn’t matter.
