A Larry Bird endorsement does mean something. Bird isn't a guy that bandies words with the media. Does this sign the contract to Hoibergs immediate success? No. But I do know that this guy doesn't throw around compliments easily. It can never hurt to be endorsed by a legend.
The Bird man knows Fred, and he knows he's a winner. I like the comment from the new recruit when he said Fred knows what it takes to get to the NBA, and I have aspirations to get there. He also said he met Fred once and he's already a special dude in my life. We need recruits like that. Said he also had offers from Stanford, Rice, Houston, Arkansas and Vanderbilt, not a bad group.
Larry is right on Fred is knowledgeable and willing to learn. Give him some time and who knows.
