Doug McDermott recreates classic Larry Bird SI cover (PHOTO)

It's easy to compare Doug McDermott's blue collar game to Larry Bird's, but this inspired idea from Sports Illustrated is on the spot.

This week's magazine features probable Player of the Year McDermott striking the same pose as Bird, flanked by two hushed cheerleaders (in this case Bluejays dancers Kelsey Saddoris and Kayleigh Begley), that graced the cover on Nov. 28, 1977.

McDermott and 14th-ranked Creighton are the No. 2 seed in this week's Big East tournament, which gets underway Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden. The Bluejays will play the winner of Georgetown-DePaul at 7 p.m. on Thursday.
