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

I'm not comparing them as talents, but their games are similar. Mullin is more of a dribbler tho. Like Bird, very smart player on defense and good team defender, tho he was not good individually. I think he's the closest, off the top of my head.
