- Larry Bird - 1,300 words
Larry Bird One of the greatest basketball players of all time emerged from the small town of French Lick, Indiana. With a population of 2,059 people, around 1,600 of them came to watch the Valley High basketball games, especially the blond-haired shooting whiz with a funny smile named Larry Joe Bird.

- Why We Win - 1,220 words
Why We Win Why We Win By Billy Packer Chapter 1 - Red Auerbach (Former Head Coach Boston Celtics) The worst thing that coaches do is talk too much. They overcoach.

But coache ...
