Got like 2 1/2 inches on Bird, not much taller, plus Bird was more athletic (before injuries).

More accurate shooter? Not a chance, plus Bird had a better postgame (outsides of their fadeaways), was better at driving, better from inside and ambidextrous from close range, crafty on a level above Dirk, so I don't see how Dirk is the more dangerous overall scorer.
