Larry Bird is an Eminem fan

Interesting stuff in this Esquire interview with Larry Bird, who has been as intensely private as any athlete in the public eye I can think of over the past three decades. Among other things, Larry Legend admits that he's acquired a taste for Eminem.

"My son was listening to that and I was like, 'What is that junk?'" Bird said. "Then I started listening and I thought, 'You know, that kid is pretty good. It's the storytelling.'"
