Man, take away the numbers from the 90's and Larry got this by a margin.

I remember another poster making a thread re when they played in their primes - Jordan a few years into the league, Larry before injuries really killed him. Jordan was awesome, but Bird was just better.

People don't understand just how incredible Bird was.

It is pretty cool looking back to their two teams going at each other, and knowing Jordan's epic competitive drive.
