Is Bird Really Going to Sleep on the Job?

June 15, 1985

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.
