Editor's note: The 2011-12 NBA season was supposed to tip off Nov. 1. With no games to watch, NESN.com will help fill the void by posting a dunk video every day until the lockout ends.
On the biggest stages, Larry Bird was one of the best players to ever play the game. During the 1984 NBA Finals, Larry Legend caused the Boston Garden to erupt.
Bird ran a fastbreak give-and-go with Cedric Maxwell and finished with a two-handed dunk, a rare sight for the 6-foot,-9-inch forward from Indiana State.
Of course, the Celtics would go on to win the game and become NBA Champions.
