LMAO

the magical ghost of NBA's past.


the most legendary 3 point shooter....hit 98 in a season.

a PF makes more 3 pointers in his....3rd year in the NBA

LMAO

LEGEND.

(save the "BUT THE THREE POINTER WAS NEW" larry is known first, and foremost, as a shooter...because he literally aint have any other skills besides talking ****. watch the college champ vs magic. magic ran circles around him. he was the tallest dude on the court standing in the corner......for 2 point shots.....

LEGEND

also played with handfulls of HOF players. if larry bird was drafted this year, he would be compared to a slower, less athletic adam morrison......period. )
post #76294 of 76396

Averaged 10 rebounds and 6 assists over his career, but "had no other skills"

Routinely scored on Jordan, Nique, Dr. J 1 on 1, but today's athletes would be too much for him.
post #76297 of 76396
I mean dirk is old as hell, slow unathletic and still giving cats of all sizes and race the work Larry is a little shorter but has more Guard skills an ublockable shot and elite vision c'mon
post #76298 of 76396
Actually homie has a case for the slower less athletic adam Morrison comparison, BUT that's what makes him Larry legend. To be able to be as successful as he was despite those limitations smokin.gif

You should be banned from talking basketball ever again for that Bird comment.

No interest in wading into this ridiculous Larry Bird debate, but just want to say Dirk was a special athlete in his own way when he was younger.  The smooth movement for his size was pretty unprecedented.

The only thing that sucks more than the city of Cleveland (actually, the entire state of Ohio) is @eNPHAN 's basketball "analysis"

I blame DCAllAmerican for this. Dude was gone from S&T for 2 and a half years until DC @'d him in here a couple weeks ago.

Larry would be a slightly better and less handsome version of Chandler Parsons
post #76305 of 76396
Larry Legend would be Larry legend today laugh.gif

***** forget he was a 6'10 SF....putting up 28/10/7 on 50/40/90. Ridiculous.

Larry won 3 straight MVPs at a time when Magic and Mike were playing. Disrespectful to say some dumb **** like "he would be Adam Morison today".

QTF!!!

Dudes act like if athletes from the past were in the modern era wouldn't get the same modern training.

Adjustments would be made! How hard is this to understand you base everything off skill.

Imagine Wilt with modern training.....

post #76310 of 76396

Bob Cousy would get his *** dragged today and so would Bill Russell.

Real talk.

What irks me is when dudes pretend like Larry Bird couldn't hold his own against "athletes" of today.

**** was ROUTINELY given Dennis Rodman, Michael Cooper, Sidney Moncteif etc BUCKETS.

Some of the best athletes and defenders to ever play the damn game laugh.gif.
