I love this illustration. I remember the infamous fight with Dr J and the 76ers. I remember him, along with every other player in the 80s, getting into it with Bill Laimbeer. I can’t say I remember Bird fighting Batman, Andre the Giant (he did fight Kareem the Giant) or Godzilla (that was Charles Barkley). But the “Hick from French Lick” did throw and take a lot of licks during his time in the NBA.

Here’s a few videos of arguably the biggest trash talker in NBA history getting into a few scuffles with some of the biggest and toughest people in the league.

JULIUS ERVING

KAREEM (WHO ONCE FOUGHT BRUCE LEE)

LAIMBEER AND MORE LAKERS

I couldn’t find any footage of Bird fighting Batman but I wouldn’t mind seeing Larry Legend beat up this guy.
