What if Michael Jordan and Larry both started their careers on the same team?
How would they have played together and fared against the competition. We all know they both were big time trash talkers, big time scorers and big time all-around players. MJ being a better overall players taking defense and offense in consideration. Bird being a better shooter. Both having great basketball IQ. Would MJ still averaged 30ppg or would Bird be the number one scoring option? how many championship? how many in a row? who wins the finals mvp?

Any thoughts? comments ?

Looking forward to all your answers.

What if Wilt Chamberlain and Bill Russell played on the same team?

What if Dolph Schayes played on the same team as Bob Petit?

What if Milt Palacio came off the bench for the 2003 Spurs?

What if Moochie Norris and Kevin Garnett played on the same team in 2002?

What if Royce White and Kareem Abdul Jabbar played together with Lee Nailon and Loren Woods?

What if people like you realized these threads have no answer and are redundant?

What if Ivan Drago was the American and Rocky was the Russian?

Results would be slightly different as I feel like MJ never really had much rivals in the NBA, so he just made up some in his head and went with it...Bird and Magic were already proven and great, this is probably a huge reason why MJ tried so hard to be great, he had those 2 stars as a measuring stick towards success.

So would Boston somehow have had the #3 pick in the 84 draft?

They would've won every title likely until MJ was bored winning his 11th title in 95.

That would have been a dream come true for even non fans of the Bulls and Celtics. You could put Larry Bird on the current Celtics and they would win the finals this very season.
