Just one more thing about that "stan" thing.... What you need to keep in mind in this case is that Larry Bird is only behind Reggie Miller my favorite player ever.... I love Lebrons game, but his game is not the only one i enjoy/appreciate today or especially compared to past players and i do hence not mind talking about his game and i certainly dont think its a crime and that certainly doesnt make me a "Lebron-stan", especially not when i am simply objective, factual and logical in my assumptions about him and anybody else....

A Stan is what i consider a fan that only likes one player, that is biased / doesnt appreciate other players games, delusional, not logical, non factual, simpleminded and in many cases disrespectful towards fans/posters who are not Stans of your player, even will use insults and so on.... thats the complete opposite to me... and thats the complete HIT with YOU....

You dont need to bump another 100 year old thread from my clowning days to "prove" me wrong, i am a different poster and i dont feel the need to create a new account because of it (although it would probably be best)...

Thats why their combined rings are 4 which is not even greater than either kareem/jordan much more if combined.

Where were you when Lebron was winning 60+ games with role players as his next best option?

even more idiotic saying Bird is a stat padder too...no wonder Knicks fans get a bad rep.

Actually very often it has been bothersome to attempt any type of candid conversation with you.... i dont even know why i try, its maybe because i still believe in a day where you might become a more sophisticated basketball fan & poster.... its never to late no matter what you did in the past.... its no insult, look Jabbar, nobody here dislikes you but its only your act, we all love basketball here, but wouldnt it be better if you dropped your act and tried to be more courteous & objective so we could enjoy sharing basketball knowledge and simply enjoy talking about anything else aswell? If its not an act, then i assume you must be a young fella still in one of those stages.... i understand, i was that to, most of us were... but keep in mind you will snap out of it eventually and when you do its just a +1 great poster here...

Barring injury and longevity issues, Bird is the no brainer. So long as he was on the floor, the Celts were never a mediocre team, even when his back problems left him a shadow of his former self. None of the other 3 could ever boast that.

He didn't need teammates tailored around his game, so it was much easier to build around him. Magic and Russell were the only 2 other players equally good at making their teammates better. Bird was also the far superior team leader. Jordan was just a primadonna asshole. Kareem was often disinterested. Lebron, while better now, was once an immature quitter.

lol its not an act, I'm an objective poster, I've said plenty of times lebron is a pretty great player (through 3 quarters anyway), I despise the road hes chosen though, don't like the individual in the slightest.

LOL everyone knew Jordan would be "the Man" except for Portland and Houston.


Portland even knew, except they already had Drexler.
