Stop it please, why don't you say nothing about Bird, those 30 or more minutes games almost all of them came after '88, if Rodman and Pip were slightly out of their primes then Bird was way out of his prime, dude was old, all banged up, career ending injuries, couldn't practice, overweight, against young athletic freaks and great defenders.
Look at the stats:
Even had some big games after '88 and that's simply amazing for the condition he was in.
Also looking at the vids you can clearly see that he's one of those players nobody can stop, you can clearly see nobody was a major problem against the skills he had.
