Larry Bird's son

Solid writing. Not many super-stars have kids that can even come close to what they did. There may be a few, but not many. The nurturing wasn't there all too often.

I always feel bad for kids of legendary athletes. First, they are raised solely by mom because dad was never home. But if they don't become legends themselves, everyone asks 'what happened to bird or mj's kid? why couldn't he succeed with all the resources and genes?' No one takes into account that they have an enormous amount of pressure to do what their dad did or be considered a failure and that they have to go through this without a normal support system.

Me too! Hope Larry Legend's son gets it together. No guy/girl is worth ruining your life over. Too many fish in the sea.

I hate it for Larry Bird's family members, and his son. I also hated to hear about MJ's son too. It's like other families all around us, everyday. Hope that young Bird will learn and move forward.

hummm, I just wonder why we find it in the heels fourm when it seems perfectly fine to post in YOUR OWN DOOK FOURM?
either way a waste of another thread by a dook boy obsessed with UNC basketball.

Did he say it was a slap? Can we not just post current information? Especially since the heels fans seem very much stuck in the past this season.

Do you think this is some kind of slap at UNC?
I don't think we care much about Larry Birds son. Larry will take care of his son and MJ will take of his.

Another competition between Larry and MJ,,,,,Who's son can get in more trouble with the law.
