For those of you who don’t think that these 80s and 90s NBA legends still got it, think again. Take our man Larry Bird, for example. This man was one of the greatest of all time, claiming three MVP honors and three NBA titles as a member of the Boston Celtics, and today he upkeeps this excellence alive as the president of the Indiana Pacers.

It’s easy for a lot of us in Generation-Y to forget the kind of impact he had on the game, with the likes of LeBron James going HAM in the league, but Bird was one of the best to ever do it. His shooting was on another level and thanks to this awesome account from Pacers All-Star Paul George, we can see he’s still very much so got it.

SLAM Magazine sat down with the Indiana star out of Fresno State where he admits that he was shocked and even taken aback from what he witnessed.

SLAM: I believe you had talked about seeing Larry shoot in the gym.

Paul George: He picked a ball up that had rolled over. He rolled up his sleeves and made about 15 in a row and just walked out like nothing just happened. It was the craziest thing I’ve seen.

SLAM: How did you and the rest of the team react?

Paul George: We were speechless. We didn’t know whether to keep shooting or just to end practice. It was sweet, man.

There you go, young bloods. We’re talking about one of the best to ever do it, way out of his prime, still nailing some big-time shots. Imagine that. 15 shots in a row! As if it was nothing. Still don’t believe him? Check out Larry’s awesome outing during the 1988 three-point shoot out. Remarkable!
