Bob Ryan spent 43 years at the Boston Globe and nearly three decades with ESPN. In his more than 50 year career, he has covered 20 NBA Finals, 20 Final Fours, 9 World Series, 5 Super Bowls, and 7 Olympics. But the NBA is where he left his lasting mark, covering the Boston Celtics since the days of Bill Russell. Bob and Mike Wise discuss the legendary Boston Globe sports department of the 1980s, Bob’s experiences with Larry Bird, the magnificence of Bill Walton, the four Celtics on the franchise’s “Mount Rushmore,” why Brad Stevens is not the reason for the Celtics’ current mediocrity, and why he stayed at the home of a player who was competing against the Celtics in the 1976 NBA Finals. Remarkable stories from a remarkable journalist who happens to be a great human being.
