Author Biography
Bird, Larry (Author)
Larry Joe Bird (born December 7, 1956) is a former American NBA basketball player and coach. He was drafted into the NBA sixth overall by the Boston Celtics in 1978. In the summer of 1992, Bird joined Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan and other NBA stars to play for the United States basketball team in that year's Olympics in Barcelona, Spain. It was the first time in America's Olympic history that the country sent professional basketball players to compete. The "Dream Team" won the men's basketball gold medal.

On August 18, 1992, Bird announced his retirement as an NBA player. Following Bird's departure, the Celtics promptly retired his jersey number 33. In 1989, Bird published his autobiography, Drive: The Story of My Life with Bob Ryan. The book chronicles his life and career up to the 1989 NBA season. In 2010 Bird co-authored the book, When the Game Was Ours with "Magic" Johnson.
