    Yeah...the current crop of NBA stars are great, from LeBron to Curry to recently-retired Kobe...but so far I've seen no one yet on Jordan's level. The guy still resides in a different dimension from the rest.

      Tell me with a straight face that Jordan never took steroids during his NBA career. A person would have to be either crazy or stupid.

        During the time of Larry Bird, I never knew there was a Miichael Jordan around.

              People dont realize jordan had to carry that bulls team for the first several yrs when he got there...the bulls were terrible in the early 80’s...

                        With today’s rules these guys would be shooting 1/3 more free throws after scoring.

                                  Almost every single one of Jordan's highlights, he either travels or discontinuous dribble

                                    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.

                                      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)

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.

                                                    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.

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.

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.

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.

My high school basketball team was 4th best in the state and had no leaders in any stat category (points, rebounds, assists, steals,)

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.
