Cockiest Quote: "As far as playing, I didn't care who guarded me-red, yellow, black. I just didn't want a white guy guarding me, because it's disrespect to my game."

When he stepped into the locker for the three-point shooting contest on All-Star Weekend in 1986, Larry Bird surveyed the scene and asked his competitors one question: "I'm just looking around to see who's gonna finish up second."
