Bird must have had a sizeable salary as a coach, but it probably didn’t come close to his paycheck as a player.  The 3-time NBA Champion averaged 24.3 PPG, 6.3 assists and 10.0 rebounds for his career, all with the Celtics. Bird continued to add to his fortune after his playing days as a coach for three seasons with the Pacers and later as part of the front office.
