Yesterday Larry Bird was named the NBA's executive of the year which made him the first person in NBA history to win the NBA MVP, Coach of the Year, and Executive of the Year.

"We had to take it slow and get some players we thought we could build around," Bird said. "It was a long journey, a painful journey. Now we think it's going to pay dividends....It's not easy," Bird said. "I knew it was going to be tough. It's still tough. We don't drive revenues like the big market teams. We can't go after the $17-18 million players. We have to do it different ways. If we try to patchwork it, it doesn't work that way."
