Default Hey, stop thinking you can beat larry bird 1 on 1

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R76nMD8buR8
I know some people on this site really think he could average 30 points per game if he plays in the 80s because the defense "sucks"

just because you had cool nicknames on youtube and could drain 3 three-pointers in a row during pickup games doesnt mean you are better than larry bird
get over it

Only a handful of humans that have ever walked the earth could potentially beat Bird in a 1-on-1 game.

Half? Are you serious? Tony Douglas is in the most elite basketball league in the world. He'd beat 99%

Toney Douglas averages over 8 pts a game and was a starting PG for the Knicks last year (even though he sucked). He averaged 20 pts a game for his senior year in college and in HS averaged 35 pts a game his senior season. Dont disrespect a scrub NBA player when he would murk the planet in ball

Some people are just idiots. These NBA "scrubs" just look bad because they're playing against the best players in the world. Most NBA point guards, the smallest guys on the court, are taller than over 95% of the population. They'd slaughter anyone

To reiterate what others said, Toney Douglas would positively destroy 99.9999% of the basketball population 99% of the time in a game of one-on-one.

A better question is: how many posters on this site could beat Larry Bird tomorrow. Not prime Bird.

I played a guy a fe years ago, he was about 45-50 years old, he was a bench srub in the yugo league where Drazen et al played. We played two on two and he would sink all shots but one so I think Bird would destroy most guys even now.

Kobe has even been quoted as saying that defense was tougher in the 80s.
