1980 Rookie Larry Bird Knocked Down by Daryl Dawkins NBA Semi-Finals TYPE 1 Original Proof Photo PSA/DNA

Until Larry Bird and Magic Johnson entered the NBA, professional basketball took a back seat to Major League Baseball and the NFL.  Bird and Magic changed it all.

Offered is a phenomenal 8x10 UPI original “Proof” photo that has the teletype caption attached to the right side of the photograph.  This was the actual master photo used before it was sent across the wires to every major newspaper in the country.  This photo shows Larry Bird on April 21, 1980 during the Boston Celtics vs the Philadelphia 76ers game in the NBA semi-finals.  This was the 2nd game in a game series.  Photo shows Daryl Dawkins towering over Larry Bird after knocking him on his butt.
