There’s an important piece of background here: Bird was going back for his senior year at Indiana State but was draft eligible because he had been in college for four years. Teams knew that, and he went lower than he should have. But that’s no reason for Travis Frederick Womens Jersey this gaffe from his home-state team.

I’ve been promising my mom, I think since I could talk, honestly 2 or 3 years old — I know it sounds crazy, but I swear I’m not lying to you guys — that I’m going to buy [my mom] a house one day, Barkley said. My family has been through so much and made so many sacrifices for my brothers and sisters.
