Bird vs Lebron, and without a doubt Bird was better in his prime
Larry Bird played in one of the toughest era's in history. Bird's stats and his career overall was hurt, because he was hurt in the last years of his career. James is a freakish player, mainly because of his stature and what he's able to do. But that doesn't mean he was better than Lebron. Who's the lady in the video? She's so scarred throughout the video, she sounds nervous, and not very confident in her answers.
Okay, she says Lebron should take the last second shot over Bird. Are you serious? Bird is one of the most clutch players of all-time. James has built the reputation of passing off the last second shot. James has recently played well in big games. Like game six in Boston during the 2012 Eastern Conference Finals. But Bird is mentally confident, and James early on showed lack of being clutch and mentally sound.
Bird had to go through Jordan, Isiah Thomas, and lets not forget the 76ers with Erving. James had to go through who after the Celtics aged? Bird also had to face the Lakers who were loaded from top to bottom. Stat's wise Bird is nearly equal to James. Bird just showed so much smarts and toughness that James has yet show. I don't think I need to discuss this topic anymore. Bird over James, until James wins a few more titles.
