Default Re: Do some people really think Larry Bird couldn't dominate like he did, in this era?

I don't get the Dirk comparison.

Dirk is much taller and a more accurate shooter, which makes him a more dangerous overall scorer.
Bird is decisively better in most of the other aspects of the game. He's an all-around player.

They're different enough that you can't infer from one's dominance in this era that the other would succeed as well.

I do think Larry Bird would absolutely kick ass in this era, but it has nothing to do with Dirk. Just with the fact that he's Larry Bird.
