After another defeat to an elite team followed by a blow-out victory at home over the Pistons, I have decided to take a break from this back and forth struggle of trying to figure out the 2009-10 Boston Celtics.  Rather, I want to take a look back.

You see, this week is my birthday.  Usually, I am not one to make a big deal out of my birthday, but this year is different.  I am turning 33.  And besides my 21st for obvious reasons, I have looked forward to turning 33 more so than any other birthday, for no other reason than it gives me an excuse to write about Larry Bird.

I figure if a man can request a longer prison sentence of 33 years due to his love for Larry (read here), then I can use my 33rd birthday to think back on my favorite Larry Bird moments.

Just in case anyone is doing some quick math at home, you will also realize that I was not very old during Bird’s prime years.  It didn’t matter.  Between watching games live, repeatedly watching games that my older brother had taped on our VCR, or watching over and over the Larry Bird: A Basketball Legend video, I feel as if I didn’t miss a thing.
