based solely on skill, Bird is no doubt the best ever. He didn't have the great athleticsism of MJ, but he was an awesome passer, rebounder, shooter, played the passing lanes perfectly, knew how to strip players in the post, had good shot selection and knew when to pass and defer to teammates, was clutch as hell. I could go on for days. There isn't a single skill-related thing he was not good at on the court. Even his defensive stance was great, he simply wasn't athletic enough to be a lock-down defender
