    I really liked him, and really hated him, and I usually don’t use the word “hate” to describe players. I save that for certain refs and use other adjectives to describe players I can’t stand. If you were a fan of the Rockets in the early and mid ‘80’s, however, it was damn near impossible to not hate Larry Bird when the Celtics played us. The man had ice in his veins and while he was healthy, could just take apart a defense. He could even uncork a defensive gem from time to time. Yeah, I hated him. As RR pointed out, 1981 and 1986. Scoreboard.

    Hakeem has some good Bird trash talking stories in his book too.
