Both guys are similar as they played with deep competition at there position. But is seems as Bing fared far better.

Bing was All-NBA 1st team in 1968 over Jerry West and sharing a spot with Oscar Robertson. In 71, West joined him as he bested Oscar this time and Walt Frazier.

It could be argued the only guards better than him at his best were West, O and Frazier. He was better than Pistol Pete, Pearl Monroe and Gail Goodrich. Probably the same level as Tiny Archibald.

With English, not only Bird and Doc, but also King, Wilkins, Marques Johnson. I think he was better than Dantley and Aguirre.
