Guess what Larry Bird thinks of this mural




It is unlikely that you’ve ever considered what Larry Bird with a tattoo of two fornicating bunnies would look like, but artist Jules Muck is here for you nonetheless.

She drew the above mural in Indianapolis in late July, which is a new twist on the iconic 1977 Sports Illustrated cover.

It’s … interesting, but it apparently didn’t sit well with Larry. His lawyer told the Indy Star:

Larry's position is he has elevated himself from where he began to where he is now through a lot of hard work. He has developed a brand that is marketable and he needs to protect that brand. The mural, as originally painted, was a departure from that brand.

That’s not to say Larry isn’t open-minded.

All of his friends and 98% of his players are tattooed. He doesn't have any problem with tattoos. He just doesn’t want to be seen as a tattooed guy.

Muck has agreed to remove all the tattoos, except the Indiana one on his left forearm.
