One of the game's greatest all-around players, "Larry Legend" and Magic Johnson helped resuscitate the NBA during the 1980s with their epic matchups in the NBA Finals. Bird's Celtics won three titles in the decade, and he won NBA MVP three times. He averaged 24.3 points, 10 rebounds, 6.3 assists and 1.7 steals over a 13-year NBA career.
