Let's look at advanced stats for the playoffs (because I guess we all agree that should be the measuring stick for comparing all time greats, who cares about regular season games against teams with losing records?).



I don't see how anybody in their right mind could say that Bird was a better playoff performer than Duncan.

stats tell the entire story

Look past the box score, and you will see why Bird is better
