Larry Bird Denies Retirement Rumors

Last updated on Friday, March 23, 2012

(INDIANAPOLIS) - Larry Bird is denying rumors he’s stepping down as president of basketball operations for the Indiana Pacers.

The New York Post cited a source today who said regardless of how the season ends, Bird would be retiring.

But Bird denied the report in a statement.

"No decision has been made, end of story," he said.

Bird has been with the Pacers for six years. A similar rumor circulated last year when Bird appeared ready to retire to Florida.
