As of 2014, Larry Bird, former professional basketball player for the Boston Celtics, resides in his hometown, West Baden Springs, Ind. Bird had an additional home in Naples, Fla. after retirement, but he sold the home in 2013.
When Bird took the position as head coach of the Indiana Pacers in 1997, he returned to his home state of Indiana to live. He stepped down as coach of the team in 2000, but Bird remains active in the organization, making his decision to reside in Indiana work-related. Bird's career in the NBA, as a player, coach and executive, has required extensive traveling, despite his commitment to residing in the area where he was raised.
