TWITTER..if an asp in the grass is a snakewhy is a grasp in the ass a goose?
With today’s rules these guys would be shooting 1/3 more free throws after scoring.
Jordan is the GOAT.... but Bird is the most dangerous man to play the game
Bird = amazing 👍🏻
JA JA JA THAT'S WHEN YOURS SEPARATE THE FROM THE BOYS LARRY THE LEGEND SCHOOL JORDAN AND THE REST OF CHICAGO BULLS. LARRY BIRD IS THE BEST BASKETBALL PLAYER IN THAT ERA LARRY BIRD AND WILTON WILT CHAMBERLAIN THOSE TWO ARE THE TWO BEST BASKETBALL PLAYERS IN EARTH PERIOD NO QUESTIONS ASK I DON'T CARE OTHERS OPINIONS CASE CLOSED
Larry bird takes them to school. Didn’t hurt that he was 6’9.
Almost every single one of Jordan's highlights, he either travels or discontinuous dribble
Elliott Gold u realize he moves in air not on the court.
@Dylan Robinson Except, yes. He travels on the first 3 highlights, and half of he rest.
Elliott Gold no
The trampoline story is not possible
A lot of disillusioned caucasians on here. I like bird I think hes one of the most underrated players but he told U fan boys that he wasn't on MJ's level. Settle down.
@Elliott Gold Russell and Walton my 2 top college players.
Yeah, white guys can't be as good as Jordan, meanwhile Stockton is better at many areas then Jordan, Maravich was simply the best/purest shooter in NBA history, and Bird has a lifetime winning record vs Jordan (ps Jordan lost every playoff game he ever played against Bird). (pps, Bird and Maravich are two of the three best collegiate players of all time w/ Alcindor)
when the NBA was good
Larry Bird was simply amazing, and I say that as a Jordan fan, but a BASKETBALL FAN 1st
Another reminder that most modern day pro sports suck compared to 20-30 years ago
Bird is the GOAT. is what it is.
No way : if i had a team now.... the first name is Bird
Lifelong CELTICS fan here .... I COULD WATCH ALL DAY PLAYOFF RERUNS OF THE BILL RUSSELL, DAVE COWENS/JOJO WHITE, LARRY BIRD, MAGIC JOHNSON, MICHAEL JORDAN ERAS. I wouldn't watch the NBA today for even 5 minutes. This is not an era that'll be remembered like the decades I previously mentioned.
What made bird so bad.white boy with game.
Two bad men!
Domonique Wilkins played even better than Jordan when Bird went for 60 against the Hawks. Wilkins was far more dominating and athletic than Jordan as a one man offensive weapon. But Bird of course scored more points, made more rebounds and assists. Bird was like an unconscious spirit that just dominated every facet of the game. But it was art and not athletics.
These Celtics would destroy any of today's current teams. Imagine Bird's Celtics playing Toronto. Even if you put Jordan on the Toronto team it would be a joke. Toronto would get swept.
1 Jordan2 Bird3 Bryant
In recent times, yes.
Oakley had absolutely zero ball skills.... he realized this in NY and embraced his inner brute enforcer and stopped trying to do things he was incapable of.... he can play defense and rebound and hit open 12 footers.... that was the extent of his game.
@baldheadkid the days that's a threat to happen are long gone, my friend. 🤣
@earlyburd78 haha .. yeah the day Oak does a behind the back crossover, you gonna eat your words!
@baldheadkid there.... fixed it for ya
Defense, rebound and open 12 footers.. Come on bro - if somebody can do that, you can't say they have 'zero skill!' 🙂
@ CIAO CHI ROMPE I COGLIONI...??????????????????????
DJ was one of the toughest defenders to play the game and MJ blows by him like he is not even there... you know bill Russell commenting on the game, is wondering if he could stop him...
Most skilled player ever will always be Kobe Bryant just watch him and learn
Most people don't know this but Larry Bird beat him more than he didn't...
That showed that jordan needed help he can score alot of points but its a team game.
He (Jordan) knew that. He did what was expected of him at that point of his career. He certainly did NOT dominate the ball at UNC. He wasn't needed to or supposed to. But as a young star with the Bulls, he was the best option and coaches force fed him and took advantage of his talent.Things evened out , at least somewhat, when Scottie arrived and took some pressure off him .
Head to head, Bird was 22-11 against Jordan, 6-0 in the playoffs. At the end of the game the announcer says Jordan has 48 but as usual Boston gets the win. And that was the difference. This season Jordan averaged 37,l top scorer, and Bird 28, fourth highest scorer. The key was getting the other players involved, which Jordan learned how to do later in his career. Jordan was very happy when Bird retired.
Yeah and he was also very happy when they got Scottie and he became a star and Horace became a very good PF. And I respect Larry to the max.
Bird with the mullet, Jordan with hair. Those were always great games with both players scoring at peak efficiency. The Bulls' Dynasty was still a few years away and Granville "Grandpa" Waiters and Dave Corzine just didn't have the skills to neutralize the Big 3 back in 1987.
I think it was Granny Waiters.
No way Bird is going to outscore Jordan.
What's your point ? Basketball is a team game if played right. And it's about WINNING, NOT STATS DUMMY! My high school basketball team was 4th best in the state and had no leaders in any stat category (points, rebounds, assists, steals,)
Now This was big boy ball
Goes to show you that basketball is a team sport and no matter how great one player is you still need the team. However one can see when Michael Jordan played he was unstoppable.
I guess Jordan started the "legal overcarry" which kinda destroyed the NBA!
@Mark Burch For sure
If Dr J could have carried the ball like Jordan and Iverson he would have been unguardable.
Bad team Chicago... Jordan best!
I was showtime Lakers fan as a child, and as I've grown older and sought out footage of Larry Bird on YouTube.... Larry Legend has become my favorite all time player to watch. He was just so skilled and intelligent as a player, and backed up his trash talking with his play as well.
Bird was the best. Jordan was the best.
Dave Corzine at 3:00 if you don't sit yo 1986 ass down!
Lebron J: I’m the goat.Bird: Bitch , please!Jordan: 🤫Johnson: 😆😆😆😆 this ni@@a
