Not so sure McHale would of "took his head off". Remember, in Bird's 60 point game against Altlanta - his teammates were passing him the ball to give him more shots (like the classic 3 pointer while falling out of bounds - Larry was amazing!) That year Bird was second in the league in scoring (28.7) and 3-point shooting (42.7 percent) and won another MVP award.
Now I do agree with you about the ring Buckeye. That same year was the classic Bird-Magic Finals rematch. Although the Celtics won the first game by 34 points, the Lakers won four of the next five and got the rings. So 60 point game = 1 victory, well put Buckeye.
