I like Duncan, he is amongst the best of the 2nd tier of all-time greats but Bird is in the discussion for GOAT. Duncan isn't, and that's the difference.
seriously! Thats the NAIL IN THE COFFIN.
In modern day NBA (1970 - Present) excluding the 50s & 60s & 40s...
Only 3 Players are considered UNQUESTIONABLE GOAT for their ability to either TRANSFORM or TRANSCEND the game forever.
1. Michael Jordan
the game forever where the rules are completely changed post MJ era. (WHOLE GENERATION COPIES HIM)
2. Magic Johnson
the game where modern day PURE PLAYMAKING PGs
3. LARRY BIRD: TRANFORMED
the game where mordern day PURE or POINT FORWARDS
copy him (LBJ, Pippen, T-mac)
Where is dat Tim Duncan in this argument.
