    Greatest of all time not michael jordan?

    I read this article (blog maybe i really don't know) and it was pretty interesting. According to it they were very comparible players

    http://home.earthlink.net/~lnkn/birdjord.htm

    If you look at the mvp's and championships jordan has the advantage, but he played in a far worse league than larry bird. In my oppinion Bird was the best ever. I think that the only reason Jordan is considered to be the best is because of the amount of publicity he got and he really had nobody close to him to compete with him. Thoughts?

    take any NBA player that ever lived, have them go 1 on 1 with MJ both in their prime, and MJ will beat them. What makes him even better is he was a great team player who made everyone around him better as well so he was the best team and individual player. MJ= G.O.A.T

    wait, i just read the little comparison...... to even put bird into jordans sentence is insane. even larry bird himself called michael the greatest basketball player he has ever see. even after the playoffs in 86, he said "it was like god disguised as michael jordan, i never thought anyone could do that to the celtics". come on man

    The dude gives Jordan no credit whatsoever, ZOMG YOU WOULD THINK SOMEONE WITH AIR IN THEIR NAME WOULD GET MOAR BLOCKS! Blah blah blah.

    As you see here Bird averaged less of a field goal percentage. But, thats all good cuz Jordan can Dunk.
    And Jordan barley had more blocks than him in more games, You would think someone with Air would get more blocks.
    Jordan avg.'d 7 more ppg, won twice the championships, oh and he's less of a player because he retired twice, it was 3 times btw idiot, remember when he played baseball?
    Birdman was good dont get me wrong....

    But this guy is straight clownin.

    Whoever wrote this sounded very bias. They definitely favored Bird.

    I think the Yankees are a terrible organization.... May be my opinion, but the Yankees are the Cowboys of the MLB, everyone thinks their "America's team" but everyone I talk to hates the Cowboys and the Yankees, including myself.

    he may have not have been the nicest team mate, but he made everyone better and play harder. you had to earn MJ's respect. he only rode the people who he thought was slacking. as the greatest competitor ever, you want your team mates to compete as hard as you compete
