It's like, the fact that defense is part of the game let alone half of it doesn't even cross their mind at all.

You are acting like Bird was a bad defender. He wasn't. He was a good team defender, and much more clutch than LBJ.

Jerry West, Kobe Bryant and especially Shaq you could also argue/debate about who were better individual talents compared to Magic & Bird....

You are putting Magic & Bird on a way to high pedestal my friend... way to big... and Bird was one of my favorite players of all time to watch (bigger favorite than Lebron).... Lebron vs Magic/Bird is much more debatable than that... you make it seem like this comparison is absolutely absurd...

We are talking about what the players can/could do on that 90 foot floor, offensively & defensively......... not accolades... you need to be more reasonable...

Its stuff like this I'm talking about!

1980-1981 Steals Leader: MAGIC JOHNSON.
1981-1982 Steals Leader: MAGIC JOHNSON.


Its easier for 6'8" - 6'9" backcourt player to lead NBA in steals. running the passing lanes with long wingspan & swatting the ball while playing perimeter D & stuff.

# of steals titles Non-athletic Magic has = 2.
# of steals titles much more athletic, freak of nature LBJ has = ZERO so far.


so stop talking offensively defensively stuff. Magic was always better than LBJ because he controlled the game better as a leader.

This player comparison is simply a joke. More ridiculous overrating of 80's legends for no reason. LeBron is a much more dominant scorer than Magic and a much better defender than Bird (and Magic). There's literally nothing Magic or Bird do significantly better than LeBron. Nothing period. They both have a weakness that is LeBron's strength. It's a joke to compare a two-way god like LeBron to two players who were marginal defensive players. Too bad both offense and defense count in this sport when comparing individual players. And LeBron is arguably a better offensive player than both while sh-tting a big fat turd over both of them defensively.

Easily, easily LeBron.

Bird Was Great but Lebron would just be to much for Bird Head to head. Too big too strong too fast. As a team Player Lebron can do it all as well whatever is needed. Sorry but Bird is Not better OVERALL than Lebron in any shape way or Form. Once Lebrons Team achievements start catching up to his individual achievements it will not be much of a debate. Ask this question 3 years from 90% of people will say Lebron easy I am betting.

You really add nothing to conversations apart from generalizations and cliches. You probably haven't seen a single full game of Bird or Magic.
