Larry Joe Bird is one of the greatest basketball players of all time. Number 33 led the Boston Celtics to 3 NBA championships over 13 years. He was an NBA All Star 12 times, he was the NBA MVP 3 straight years from 1984-1986, he even won a gold medal as a member of the U.S. Olympic Dream Team in 1992, before moving on to become head coach and general manager of the Indiana Pacers.

But it wasn't until this weekend that he was trending on Twitter because he had a tomato that looked like him. Sunday, someone posted a photo of this lookalike fruit, (yes, it's a fruit,) and social media went crazy because, it looks like the hick from French Lick! Doesn't it?

Bonus Rocky pepper!
