    Right now 21 votes for LBJ being the BEST SF of all time? Cmon Son. I love LeBron's game but It's Larry by a lot right now, LeBron MAY pass him later but he has much to do.

    It goes past the numbers, probably just something you had to see. I think the legacy had a lot to do with giving Bird the edge right now. People (Laker fans) hated the guy but they did respect him. Just looking at the numbers isn't enough, basketball then and now are very different.

    who said anything about numbers? and i did watch larry play as a matter of fact. from your post it just seems you simply liked bird better.

    And yes its very different, both for the better and the worst.

    You are right, I don't think anyone else has ever won a title where two top 5 players in there own conference was out for the playoffs including one who was on the #1 seed.

    But I will answer your question.

    It depends on how the Lakers might lose. Remember, if they make it to the finals and lose to Miami in a 7 game hard fought series with out HCA it won't be such a failure as Miami has gotten even stronger than last year and it's much easier for them to secure HCA in the east than it is for the Lakers in the west. If the Lakers lose to OKC in the WCF or to Miami in 5 or less, due to Kobe shooting them out of the series or some other blunder, than it is a failure for sure.

    Remember, Lebron didn't have to go to Miami to form a "superteam"...he could have easily gone to Chicago or NY and he still would have been on a good team. It was his choice to go for overkill and therefore we have to account for that degree of difficulty or lack there of when assessing his legacy and comparing him to other greats.

    And in answer to your question, no he probably would not have left and if he still did then it would be a supreme failure.

    Remember, its the greatness of ones opponents that makes one truly great.
    if we account for degree of difficulty than wouldn't it be lebrons advantage playing with scrubs for 7 years than having wade play one amazing season than having him hobbled and injured his second? lets consider that bird played with a more stacked team. also playing in chicago would have probably brought along bosh, rose is almost as good as wade plus they have a legit center in noah something miami is seriously missing.

    Your mistaken, Im not making the claim so how can I be right, if you wish to argue the topic then take it straight to Bird, hes the one who said it. I'm the one not buying it.

    Not really. In 2011 both Boozer and Noah were playing hurt and in 2012 we had a healthy team with them. Bulls would have swept Miami last year even Hollinger admitted it.

    Depending on whether or not LeBron gets a few more rings to his name, I say he has a good chance in being better than Larry Bird.
    LOL no

    Lebron wasn't fatigued, Marion just locked him down in the finals. We are talking about a top 5 player in the league being injured who was the #1 seed.
