From Christopher Veldman:
I saw this interview with Larry Bird on ESPN yesterday and thought you might find it interesting.
“‘The one thing that bothers me the most is guys taking big pay cuts for a year to go down there and try to win a championship,’ Bird told ESPN. ‘There’s a lot of guys who like to ride the coattails of the best and they’ll take a pay cut just to have an opportunity to win that ring.'”
