Larry Bird only played for the Boston Celtics in his pro basketball career, but now he is involved with the Indiana Pacers.
While Larry Bird may have been a fan of other sports, most biographies about him say that he gravitated towards basketball as a kid, and continued to focus entirely on basketball throughout his athletic career-- in high school, college, and the NBA. There have been a few basketball players who tried to play other sports (for example, Michael Jordan tried to become a pro baseball player, but his efforts were unsuccessful); however Larry Bird decided at a young age to make basketball his life, and that is what he did-- first as a player, and then as a coach.
his brother Larry was a basketball athelete not but didnt make it to the pros not sure about other siblings?!
If you mean JT, of the Gonzaga basketball team, he is an amateur. He receives financial aid just as any other student, on the same bases.

No, they never played against each other until that game in 1979.

Yes. According to a February 3, 2008 article on fallsnewspress.com: "Woodridge will be focusing on Revere's Casey Nance, the daughter of former Cleveland Cavalier NBA great Larry Nance. The 6-foot-4 University of Dayton recruit will be a handful for the Lady Bulldog post players. Nance considered a host of other division I schools, including Bowling Green, Clemson, Indiana, Penn State, and Miami (OH)." Yes she is related to Larry Nance. Her dad (Larry Nance) came to most of her games if not all.
Novice, newcomer, amateur, fledgling
Bobby Jones won it four times as an amateur, and other amateur winners are Jerome Travers, Chick Evans, Johnny Goodman, and Francis Ouimet; there have been no amateur victories in the U.S. open since 1933.
Larry Bird, Charles Barkley, Larry Johnson, Shawn Bradley, Patrick Ewing, Tyrone Bogues, and Eric Gordon (a child then but an NBA star now) all appeared in 1996's "Space Jam". So, any other basketball star past or present didn't make a cameo in the movie.
