A mural of former NBA star Larry Bird is seen on the side of a multi-family residence in Fountain Square, Wednesday, Aug. 21, 2019, in Indianapolis. Larry Bird likes the mural but not the tatts. Bird's attorney, Gary Sallee, says the former Indiana Pacers executive "needs to protect" his brand and "doesn't want to be seen as a tattooed guy." Artist Jules Muck says she was just trying to be funny. The mural is a replica of Bird's appearance on a 1977 Sports Illustrated cover when he played college ball for Indiana State.
