MacMullan couldn’t stop there when reminiscing about Bird’s most iconic moments.
“I always loved the ‘86 All-Star Weekend when he walked into the locker room and said, Which one of y’all is going to finish second?’ for the 3-point shooting contest,” she said. “That was pretty cool. Then you’ve got to go out and win it, which he did, of course.”
There’s also a humorous gem involving Bird and former New York Knicks center Patrick Ewing from a year that MacMullan couldn’t pinpoint, although she thinks it’s from the 1980s.
“He and Patrick Ewing didn’t particularly like one another, although they ended up becoming great friends on the  Dream Team and they remained great friends,” she said. “But back then, they were competitiors in the same division. One time in Madison Square Garden, Ewing had come down the floor and hit a shot and said something like “Face.” So Larry said, ‘Here’s what I’m going to do to you next time: I’m going to up-fake you. I’m going to spin you to the left. I’m going to come to the right. I’m going to up-and-under. I’m going to score.” And then he went down and did exactly that. He used to tell guys that all the time, ‘Here’s what I’m going to do to you,’ – And then he’d go do it. They just couldn’t stop him.”
