Not necessarily in terms of career or how they performed compared to their peers during their eras but certainly if you were to just compare basketball ability.
I like Bird as much as anyone else but put him in todays league and he is not as good a player as kobe bryant. Especially if were are considering a 1v1 game.
Thats not disrespecting Bird its just true.
