Example of Larry Bird's leadership



I've posted this elsewhere in a comment section. I just think it needs to be put here to better illustrate how Larry Bird's lack of vision has/is/will continue to kill this franchise.

Jeff Foster and Troy Murphy have been rumored in trades for 2 years straight.

Why are they still here?

In theory, we could have

1) Traded Foster to Denver for a 1st rounder and an expiring contract in 2009

2) Traded Murphy to Cleveland for a 1st rounder and an expiring contract

3) Used the saved cap room to get the 17 and Kirk Hinrich today

So by Larry not having the vision to deal those guys, He has cost us 3 First round picks and a starting PG

But at least he’s white, from Indiana, and was a good player in his day. So we have that.
