On 22-year anniversary of Larry Bird's retirement, here he is smoking Dale Ellis in 1988 3-point contest

It was 22 years ago today, August 18, 1992, that Larry Bird announced his retirement from the NBA after only 12 seasons.  In honor of this, here's a clip of the 1988 3-point shootout.  It was Bird's third consecutive title, and at the time he was the only player ever to win it (the contest was first held in 1986).
