Larry Bird on his modest spending habits and why he didn’t want to buy a Mercedes: “I can’t see putting $50,000 or $60,000 in a car when our house was $10,000 bigger. I can’t buy that.”

Larry Bird is one of the most legendary players in NBA history. Along with Magic Johnson, he is credited with being one of the key players in saving the league and saving it from failure. Byrd played for the Boston Celtics, a symbol of excellence and the city, a legacy that is firmly engraved in that city’s proud athletic heritage. But despite being one of the biggest stars in league history, streaks of fame and fortune never appealed to Larry Legend.
