BIRD AND MAGIC DISS THE MIAMI DREAM TEAM

In Sports on July 21, 2010 at 3:15 pm
Peep what Larry Bird and Magic Johnson had to say about the Dream Team with Lebron, Bosh and Dwade.
Magic:
“We didn’t think about it cause that’s not what we were about,” said Johnson, whose Michigan State squad beat Bird’s Indiana State team in the 1979 National Collegiate Athletic Association championship. “From college, I was trying to figure out how to beat Larry Bird.”
Bird:
“There is no way I would have joined magic or michael and play with them. The only time i ever wanted to play with magic was on the olympic team, and even then our practices were hard, and we beat each other up in practice. So no way magic would have ever played for celtics, or me going to Los Angeles. It hurts even thinking about me being in that yellow jersey”
And while we’re at it, throw Charles Barkley in there, who doesn’t have a ring like Bron Bron.
“Mike [Jordan] and I are in 100 percent agreement on this. If you’re the two-time defending NBA MVP, you don’t leave anywhere. They come to you. That’s ridiculous. I like LeBron. He’s a great player. But I don’t think in the history of sports you can find a two-time defending MVP leaving to go play with other people.”
