Default Re: Tim Duncan vs Larry Bird

I never said Shaq was a great defender, but his IMPACT was clearly more on that side of the ball than Bird.

Shaq was a legit rim protector and great post-defender. Add in the intimidation factor.....and you got more impact than Bird.

Rebounding matters. I don't care who played what position....bottom line is Shaq was clearly better at it.

Three basic areas a player should be graded on - impact as an offensive player, impact as a defensive player, and rebounding.
