Larry Bird's Left Handed Game

One of those stories about Larry that made him an enigma.

Story is that he was finding the game boring after going for 60 odd the game before this one. A team mate jokingly suggested he should play left handed and this was the result. A lazy 47/14/11 against the Blazers. Everything but a jump shot was taken left handed.

Think about how good you have to be that you deliberately play a game as a joke to keep yourself entertained and you deliver that stat line. amazing.

No one has ever played the game better than what he did in that 85/86 season. Not Michael, not Magic, not Wilt, not Russell, NO ONE. He was so good that season, it was insane - and he did it all with a bad back.

He was offically ambadextrious so as good as he was he was also comfortable playing/shooting left handed anyway.

He still scored more points with his right hand than left hand in that clip I think
