Bird is really quick in his prime, I don't know why people say he is unathletic.

Well, admittedly I have only seen his highlights, but he seems out of control in a lot of those plays and just tosses the ball at the hoop or to teammates, but it just happens to go in the basket or result in a perfect pass lol.

You should watch a couple of full games with prime Larry Bird. He is very athletic, not as much as guys like Jordan or Rose or LBJ but he has good quickness. Most young people see him as a white dude and thinks he can't be athletic but that is simply not true.

Both Magic and Bird moved in a weird way; but everything was deliberate. They were geniuses.

GOAT, full stop.

Exactly right. Too many people think athletic = jumps high. Being athletic also includes stuff like body control and coordination and that's where guys like Bird and Steve Nash (another supposedly "non athletic" player) excel.

People assume goofy looking white people aren't athletic. So they repeat it over and over until it has become a near universal truth.
