If anybody has credibility to his word, it’s Larry Bird. He won championships, he’s one of the best players of all time, and he knows what he’s talking about. This is not Lance Stephenson making a choke reference. This is not Metta World Peace making a silly comment. This is Larry Bird. That being said, I can put my money that the Pacers are without question playing soft. And if this doesn’t motivate them to play their butts off, I don’t know what will. Their backs are against the wall, and if they lose Game 6, well, they shouldn’t have even been in position to play the Heat to begin with.
