You have thought it, and we have too — it is a little weird that Hall of Fame Boston Celtics legend Larry Bird just met star Celtics forward Jayson Tatum at this year’s All-Star Game in Indianapolis. But the two Boston icons have finally crossed paths, with Tatum surprised and honored that The Hick From French Lick was looking forward to it.

The St. Louis native related that the encounter left him a bit star struck, noting that Larry Legend is “a lot taller than I thought he was” when speaking to the media about meeting Bird at the All-Star Week festivities.

The hosts of the CLNS Media “How Bout Them Celtics!” podcast took a closer look at the pair of Boston greats finally crossing paths on a recent episode.

Take a look at the clip embedded above to hear their thoughts on the meeting!
