Re: Do some people really think Larry Bird couldn't dominate like he did, in this era?
take any of the elite sfs of the 80s and they would score just as many points in any era...
and with legal zone defenses now.....you can hide bad defenders or protect your star players on defense
you could play Bird as a center on defense against most teams if you wanted to.
Bird was the real deal.....legit superstar....media gave him more light than other legit superstars because he appealed to white mainstream fanbase....but that doesn't take away from the fact that he was a bonafide great player.
