Who does Larry Bird think he is? Telling us basketball fans that he's going to "lay down and go to sleep" if there is a 2-3-2 championship series format next year. "I guarantee you I will not be playing (at the end of the regular season). I'll be resting," Bird says.
What a slap in the face to fans who pay for Larry Bird's seven-figure contract. In the business world, an employee who lays down and goes to sleep on the job doesn't win a most-valuable-player award. He's usually fired.
