The Indiana Pacers announced Wednesday that Larry Bird will return next season as the team's President of Basketball Operations.
Bird has been highly criticized in his tenure as an executive, and is a prime illustration as to why great players don't always make great front office members. Although some of his moves have raised eyebrows around the league, the Pacers showed surprising grit in the first-round against a heavily favored Bulls team, which likely bought Bird at least one more year.
