BIRD CLIPPED? Pacers Coach Larry Bird "nixed a $200,000
advance" for "Full Court Press," a book about his first year
as a coach, "because the offer wasn't lucrative enough,"
according to ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY. Bird's agent Frank
Weimann said his client "deserves big money," but added that
he "counseled his client to take the offer" (EW, 11/21).
