Hoops Links: Knicks, Johnson, Martin, Olympics

On this date in 1992, Larry Bird announced his retirement from the NBA after 13 incredible seasons.  Larry Legend went out on the highest note possible after he and the Dream Team captured the gold medal in Barcelona, Spain.  The forward played with toughness and grit until the very end of his NBA career but was severely hampered by back issues in his later years and, clearly, had nothing left to prove.  The Hall of Famer finished his career with 24.3 PPG, 10.0 RPG, and 6.3 APG with 49.6% shooting from the floor.  Bird also accumulated more accolades than the space in this post will allow: three NBA titles, three MVP awards, two Finals MVP awards, twelve All-Star nominations, and much, much more.
