Maybe Kobe, but no one else. No way TD is better. Shaq is on par with him. Who else?
Did you ever see Bird play in his prime?
We're talking 30/9/7 TODAY, leadership, rings and making everyone better.
Not to mention the hype he would receive (not that he needs it) for being a top 5 white player (he's waaaay better than Nash and better than Dirk)...
Just ask Magic Johnson or Charles Barkley about it...
