Bird is the epitome of Greatness. People always put numbers, stats, and accolades as arguments for greatness, but it’s heart. This kind of character spreads to your teammates, causing them to rally behind you and ultimately win. This is what made Bird, Jordan, and other legends as great leaders. Bird: Suffered a fracture during the NBA Finals and minutes later, comes back on the court to win it for his team Jordan: Suffered Flu like symptoms during NBA Finals, and still wins it for his team Lebron: leaves Cleveland to chase rings, recruits other players to join him, yells at referees, flops, sits out due to cramps, separates himself from his team during timeouts cause he’s done, calls himself the GOAT rather than having his game speak for himself, gets his coach fired, can’t take a LA Lakers team with young talent to playoff contention, and the list goes on. Bottom line: Lebron is a great player in terms of stats. No heart=No Greatness

Ima say Larry Bird is the second best basketball player, Michael Jordan is the first, but Bird is better than Lebrun for sure.

He always seemed to be thinking a step ahead of any defender. His team mates just had to catch the passes and lay it in

5:15 Piston fans can safely blame Bill Laimbeer for backing away from the pass rather than stepping into it.

Damn, my favorite part was the one where they show the rivalry of Magic and Larry, Lakers vs Celtics with that epic music. Incredible.
steve benton (10 days ago)
I forgot who said this, but he said "Every time you play against Larry Bird you get the feeling you're playing in his backyard." The Celtics could be up 30 points with two minutes to play and Bird would dive for a loose ball. His passing was stunning. When you thought he had an open shot, which anybody else would've taken, he'd pass it off in a flash just to make you think twice. It really was like you were playing in his back yard in Indiana. He was a fucking beast with eyes in the back of his head. I miss him.

Bird is *the* clutch time assassin. Bird is *the best* , *most clever* passer in the history of the game, Bird is *the best* small forward of all time. He is *TOP 3 ALL TIME* and idrgaf what a bunch of cough syrup sipping 19 year olds with lean belly's have to say about it so dont even reply to me.

Hey, just because you turn on all the cheat codes and exploit a few glitches that doesn’t make you a great basketball player!

Players today would run off the court after they got a little tap anywhere on the body. Back then didn't matter everyone just wanted to play compete god today's game is just so boring
Brendan Cronin (12 days ago)
Bird was a tough son of a gun. Played with a stiff back for a large part of his career

A large portion of this footage was in LB's later years. He was playing with chronic multiple injuries i.e. back, spurs, etc. and quite frankly was sub-par at best to his own standards. You should have seen him during his 3X MVP/NBA championship runs between 84-86. I think Celts/LB won in 81 too. He would absolutely average a triple double in today's environment not to mention his point productivity would be exponentially higher.

On Bird vs. Lebron Bird was better. End of sentence. Period. But!! One has to wonder what Lebron would have been able to do if he had been blessed with the duo of McHale and Parrish from day one. Those who watched know what those two provided. They protected the rim defensively which allowed Bird, possessing power forward size at 6'10" to play small forward and relax defensively, (he rarely guarded the oppositions best player, something Lebron has done quite a bit) and be ready to get out and run off missed shots. They were worth 10 hard fouls a game. McHale had a Swiss Army knife worth of post moves (Barkley called him the most difficult cover he ever faced) and Parrish was a 7 footer with a jump shot, who averaged 20 while shooting 55%. He also filled the lane late on the break, pass it high and he could catch and finish with ease. Imagine if Lebron had played come into the league and found his team had a slightly less "all time great" version of Tim Duncan (McHale - universally ranked in top 8 of P/Fs of all time) and a slightly better version of Pau Gasol (Parrish).

Ain't even a debate to me Lebron can't fuck wit Larry on his off day
jonesyterp (13 days ago)
First rule of discussing Larry Bird. Do NOT say he wasn't a good athlete! Everyone who says that is a fucking asshole who is playing up the whole "he had to work harder because he wasn't blessed with natural abilities" bullshit. Bird worked his ass off, as hard as anyone. But hard work doesn't get any 6' 10" man in history to play basketball with the balance and footwork of Larry Bird without first having an awful lot of athletic ability. In a league full of freaks he was a freak in his own right.

Larry Bird was unbelievably quick, he wasn't fast but he was quick! I agree completely with this statement, because it's truth.
Bart Tare (14 days ago)
God damn. And it all looks so effortless. I want that guy on my team. Forever.

I hope Luka becomes the reincarnation of this man. You can't deny he has the potential.
Bob shurunkil (15 days ago)
OK OK Im flipping. I will now no longer say Bird is just a white Hope being claimed to be good. the man was good. REALLY good.
Jaybird (8 days ago)
+Bob shurunkil you are literally arguing with yourself. Stop drinking cough syrup you fuckin loser lol.
Bob shurunkil (8 days ago)
ok lets see if this works again with you... NO ONE has to or feels the need to "cosign" jordan or magic. the reason is people generally disregard bird. That is not good nor just. BUT ITS HAPPENED... now take your ass back into your hole +Jaybird
Bob shurunkil (10 days ago)
wait, why are you saying "when jordan and Magic" cosign? WHY WOULD HE HAVE NEEDED SUCH!?!?! WHO COSIGNS JORDAN!?!?! NO ONE!! because the FACT IS, Bird is NOT seen as great, despite being such, now go sit your stupid ass down. Cuz I aint havin it..I , like many others didnt see him as such. And now I do. So go sit ya ass in the corner. +Jaybird
Jaybird (10 days ago)
Anyone who has ever held the opinion that Bird was a white hope claimed to be good knows nothing about ball. Bird is a fucking legend. When Jordan and Magic cosign your game you dont really have much left to prove to anyone.

The big man that could do it all. Larry Bird.
Josh Boehnlein (17 days ago)
Watching this vs. LEBRON highlights. BIRD wins hands down...Get tired of Lebron being better than Bird. Lebron plays with the grace of TODAY'S NBA rules which didn't exist in Bird's day. Bird wins hands down in. TOUGHER era Lebron will never know. Those are facts that are UNDISPUTED. Lebron would get raped in the Bird era of Defense.
Truthhurts1022 (17 days ago)
Someone please try to tell me that LBJ is better and more clutch than Bird. Please, I want to hear from someone that stupid. One more thing, Bird never sat out to rest and remained a loyal teammate. Oh, forgot someone else by the name of Michael Jordan was pretty decent also.
Adriano Barbosa (17 days ago)
Isiah and the Birdman were the reason why Jordan didn't won anything in the 80's. Don't ever forget that. After those two retired, Jordan became a champion.

Bird > Jordan and im a Jordan fan. Bird gave Jordan the business in the late 80s and early 90s when his back was hurt and he was out of his prime

When are we going to STOP this larry bird being more than what he was? He was soo average! a wide open jump shot will always go in. He had no other game geez there were too many other ballers that killed bird night in and night out. The players that faced him then for some reason is kissing up to keep this false story alive, what? Just to say there was one white guy who could be named with the greats of that time? Cut the crap already, maaan!!

All it takes is one thing to separate lebron from Larry. Larry Bird playing on a fractured knee in a playoff game and leading his team back to win it. Something Lebron would absolutely never do. Larry is the #1 SF ever don’t @ me, it’s not close.

Uzair Chudhary (27 days ago)
The man's trash talk is whats incredible. He deliberately put targets on his back just to destroy whichever defender thought he could shut down Larry. No one in the current NBA trash talks at that individual level.
Dushan Fernando (27 days ago)
I’m not white nor black, but I truly believe Bird is the greatest basketball player ever. I respect people who believe the MJ is the GOAT, but Bron can’t even lace the shoelaces of these guys.

I can tell youre young if youre sitting here comparing Bird with Lebron and not Bird and Jordan... Lebron would get mopped in the old 80-90s league
