Larry Bird Announces Comeback to the NBA… as a Coach!

Boston, MA – In a shocking move, basketball legend Larry Bird announced today that he’s coming out of retirement – not as a player, but as a coach! The 67-year-old Hall of Famer has agreed to join the Boston Celtics as an assistant coach, effective immediately.

“I’ve always loved the game, and I’ve been itching to get back involved,” Bird said in a statement. “I’m excited to bring my experience and knowledge to the sidelines and help the Celtics return to their winning ways.”

Bird, a 12-time All-Star and three-time NBA champion, played his entire 13-year career with the Celtics from 1979 to 1992. He’s widely regarded as one of the greatest shooters and passers in NBA history.

Celtics General Manager, Brad Stevens, welcomed Bird back to the organization, saying, “Larry’s presence will be a huge asset to our team. His insight and leadership will undoubtedly make an impact on our players and coaching staff.”

Bird’s first game as a coach will be tonight, as the Celtics take on the Chicago Bulls at TD Garden. Fans are buzzing with excitement, eager to see the “Hick from French Lick” back in action. Welcome back, Larry Legend!
