LBJ never came close to Bird's level even now.
If Bird had mchale + Parish. LBJ has Wade + Bosh. so no argument there.
Bird averaged 10 rebounds for his career!!! That's insanity. Wake me up, when Lebron can do that.
Not to mention he played SF his entire career. LBJ's playing PF most of time, and still can't average 9+ rebounds.
