Okay, I should have described Bird a bit differently. As some of you...
- ... pointed out, there were concerns about him, and that's what I was
getting at. I recall discussing Bird around the time of the draft
with someone I worked with at the time, who held the record for the
highest career field goal percentage at Alfred University, and
neither of us was completely convinced that Bird was a great NBA
prospect. Granted, we were not at the NBA scouting level, but I
believe there were many knowledgeable basketball people with some
concerns about Bird.
