Larry Bird, without question, is one of the greatest players of all time. However good one was at basketball, they could not love playing against a team led by Bird. The 6ft 9' forward was a menace to deal with.
Be it Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Michael Jordan, Hakeem Olajuwon, Isiah Thomas, Patrick Ewing, or Dominique Wilkins, everyone (some more than others) got the taste of defeat at the hands of Larry Legend.
Shaquille O'Neal recently shared one of his stories of tormenting Wilkins' Hawks so much so, that Atlanta's own bench started enjoying the misery their team was going through.

A regular season game between a solid Hawks team led by the Human Highlight Reel and the defending 3-time MVP's Celtics in the 1984-85 season became one of the most memorable games of the 13-year career of Bird.
The 28-year-old came up with 60 points, shooting 22 of 36 from the field. It wasn't like it was his day and the Hawks team was going easy on him.
