LARRY BIRD STEPS DOWN

The first attrition of the playoff teams happened quickly, with Indiana Pacers president Larry Bird announcing he’s stepping down.

Bird has headed the personnel decisions for the Pacers for a few years now, and will now move into a more advisory role.

It’s yet to be seen how much this has to do with the upcoming free agency of Paul George, who’s rumored to have an icy relationship with Bird.

The Pacers are in the midst of a questionable time, stuck between competing and tanking.

With Bird out, the Pacers now will have to look toward a new prescence for some guidance going forward, especially with the future of Paul George in question.
