Agreed. Dirk won MVP and FMVP.
In terms of shooting him and Bird are comparable, Dirk also a good rebounder (but not on Bird's level), Dirk is taller but Bird was more athletic (before back injuries), everything else is not even close.
If Dirk can do what he did/does, one can only imagine what Bird would do.
