Larry Bird

"Push yourself again and again. Don't give an inch until the final buzzer sounds."

Like most of the NBA stars in the 1980s, Larry Bird wore Converse shoes. One of the most prolific Converse basketball shoes in the 1980s was the 1986 Converse Weapon. The Converse Weapon had a shoe for Larry Bird and Magic Johnson, who were the initial endorsers.
