Remembering The 1988 Three-Point Shootout

As we are only hours away from an epic Three Point Shootout between Celtic teammates Ray Allen and Paul Pierce it seems like only yesterday that Larry Bird was winning the first three shootouts ever held. Bird, always with a flare for the dramatic, rallied at the end to win yet another title. Only Larry Legend would launch the final ball and walk away with his finger in the air letting everyone know who the champ was.

To this day, I still do the same exact thing after launching a three pointer from the corner.

Topics: Larry Bird, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen
