Larry Bird played in 80’s and had a rivalry with Los Angeles Lakers Magic Johnson, they also faced the Chicago Bulls of Michael Jordan.
Here are others take why Larry Bird most of the time than Lebron James.
Higher IQ, underrated Passer and rebounder, way better defender and way better shooter than LeBron. Less drama and toxic too!
In terms of pure basketball skill though, Bird over LeBron easily. He’s a better free throw shooter, three point shooter, clutch shooter, rebounder, defender, has higher basketball IQ, and all around intangibles
Yes Bron might get the highlight reel but I would like to have a complete player individually than someone who relies on pick and roll and drive in then pass. Physicality is a gift, yes but understanding the game and being mentally tough that is more important for me.
