Artist John Henry Gloyne perfectly captures the famous fight between Julius Erving and Larry Bird in 1984, during the heated Philadelphia 76ers vs Boston Celtics days. This moment turned into a brawl and cost both legends $7,500 in fines.
Of the event, Erving later said in his autobiography. “I don’t hate Larry. I never hated Larry. I hated Boston. I hated the Celtics. Another classic example of why rivalries were better back in the day.
