You do know LBJ cannot "SUSTAIN" this for 80 games! you realize that.
1985 Bird: 28.7 ppg / 10.5 rpg / 6.6 apg for 80 games
1988 Bird: 30 ppg / 9.3 rpg / for 76 games
1987 Bird: 28.1 ppg / 9.2 rpg / 7.6 apg for 74 games
LBJ never came close to Bird's level even now.
If Bird had mchale + Parish. LBJ has Wade + Bosh. so no argument there.
