Larry was a 12-time NBA (National Basketball Association) All-Star and he was named the league's Most Valuable Player (MVP) three consecutive times in 1984, 1985 and 1986. He played his entire professional career for Boston, winning three NBA championships and two NBA Finals MVP awards. He played on the US Olympic Dream Team in 1992, which won the gold medal at the 1992 Summer Olympics. Thereafter he served as coach of the Indiana Pacers and president of basketball operations for the Indiana Pacers. He is named as Rookie of the Year, Coach of the Year, Executive of the Year, Regular Season MVP and Finals MVP.  In NBA history Larry is the only player to have achieved these honors.
