He has two siblings

In an interview, Corrie opened up about her estranged relationship with her father, Larry, who, despite being a biological father, only paid child support and mostly abandoned her. 

She said every time she saw her father, he told her he loved her but as soon as she would leave, she didn't hear from her dad for a year. 

She used to write letters every single time, leaving her phone number and address, asking her to contact her or leave a message but never got a reply. 

A hilarious Larry Bird story 

The former basketball head coach Nolan Richardson recalled a hilarious story about Larry at his hall of fame induction. 

He recalled the time back then when he turned the radio on to listen to the game between Indiana State and New Mexico state

Though he had no clue about the players of either team, he wished Indiana State to win because they were big rivals. 

And suddenly, he hears Bird's name coming constantly, and he says, "who's Bird." 

He could not see him but only imagine at the time, and by the time he came to an end, he was like, "boy, that brother can play." 

And when he saw Larry's picture in the newspaper the next morning, he said, damn.
