I sometimes go to Indianapolis Pacer games where Larry Bird is the now the President of Operations. I was able to meet Bird at a function for season ticket holder and special guests to the area randomly in a visit to town. He seems to be a quiet and shy person, almost as if he's completely over being a celebrity, a much larger star than anyone else in his organization of rising stars with the Indiana Pacers.
Even standing 6'2" I still felt small standing next to him as he towers over all that are in a room. Here's a photo of us at the event!
