ESPN Accidentally Forgets About Larry Bird In Hilarious Twitter Gaffe


The Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers have had many Hall of Famers grace their championship rosters over the years, and ESPN forgot about one of the key members of the storied rivalry.

The Worldwide Leader is preparing to roll out its two-part 30 for 30 film, “Best of Enemies,” that chronicles the 1980s rivalry between the two NBA juggernauts. So ESPN decided to post a hypothetical game to Twitter, containing the five best players at each position between the two teams and asked fans to choose a starting five within the salary requirements of $15.

Unfortunately for ESPN, though, it accidentally forgot to put Larry Bird on the list.

ESPN also misspelled Robert Parish’s name.
