Celtics Legend Releases Fiery Statement During Reunion With Bird, McHale

A long line of Boston Celtics legends paved the way for the success of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. The most historic franchise in the NBA is now run by those two, but it was founded on greatness.

Bill Russell’s eleven championships set the standard, and Larry Bird kept the magic going. Alongside Kevin McHale, Robert Parish, Cedric Maxwell and others, Bird’s Celtics were the cream of the crop.

From the well-documented rivalry with Magic Johnson and the Los Angeles Lakers to the bloody battles with Isiah Thoms’ Detroit Pistons, that era of Celtics basketball was one to remember.

Bird, McHale, Parish and Maxwell are reunited in the city they once ruled last weekend. They were at the opening of the new Dick’s Sporting Goods store in Boston. There they spoke to both fans and the media.

The foursome was utterly dominant as they shared the court together, and McHale reminisced about those times with a smile.

“The combination of these four brought a lot to the field. We would play big, we would play small,” McHale told CLNS Media before being interrupted by Parish.

But halfway through his statement, Parish interrupted him and let out a (video contains explicit language) not-safe-for-work proclamation.

As Parish used creative language to describe the foursome’s authority on the pitch, McHale and Maxwell burst into laughter, with the latter quickly making a joke in an attempt to get his former teammate back in check. “This is a family show,” Maxwell said. in the middle of laughing.

It’s not often that Bird returns to the city of Boston, and a reunion with his teammates was a refreshing reminder of the incredible history of the Celtics organization.
