I love that Bird vs. Magic is still a dividing line, even though the rivalry has been going on for more than 20 years and Larry Bird and Ervin Johnson are still friends, though Bird and the “Magic” persona are not as much.

You can probably guess which side of the argument they support at Indiana State, the university where Larry Bird attended and led to the team’s lone NCAA championship.

How long did it take for the school to erect a statue of Bird? — and I laughed at the sculptor’s quotes from the Associated Press (thanks to SLAM).

Sculptor Bill Wolfe stated that he intends to ensure that Bird’s statue is larger than Magic Johnson’s, who led Michigan State to an NCAA championship game victory over Bird’s Indiana State squad in 1979.

Wolfe declared, “I have nothing against Magic.”

“Larry is simply superior,” Wolfe continued in agreement with Jack Fox, the Indiana State University Foundation’s director of development.
