LBJ never came close to Bird's level even now.
If Bird had mchale + Parish. LBJ has Wade + Bosh. so no argument there.
I always considered '86 Bird's peak. Celts won the most games and his defense was probably his best. 26/10/7 with 2 steals and a block. Had well above a 2:1 AST:TO ratio as well
Right now Bron's playing great defense w/ 27/8/7 with a AST:TO ratio well above 2:1. I think he can sustain the stats above, especially with the way hes playing
