It seems to be a personal pastime of former NBA and current host of the “Old Man and the 3” podcast JJ Redick to get himself embroiled in conversations about the basketball abilities of the stars of the league from the past. But even as his latest round of furor that involved another alumnus of the Boston Celtics in Hall of Fame forward Larry Bird and his 3-point shooting abilities has died down, it comes to life again in the work of others.
The host of the eponymous “Dan LeBatard Show” recently had his guests debate whether — if their very lives were on the line — of they would prefer Larry Legend or Mr. Redick take the shot that would decide their fate from beyond the arc.
While there may be no actual executioner there to do the deed if they guess wrong, it certainly put a different spin on an increasingly tired sort of question in terms of crapping on our NBA elders.
Take a look at the clip embedded above to hear what they had to say about who they would prefer to take the shot.
