Bird is a great rebounder, Duncan is GOAT-like. Bird is a great defender, Duncan is GOAT-like. Bird is a great post player, Duncan is GOAT-like. Bird is great at drawing double-teams, Duncan is GOAT-like. 2 can play at this game.

Bird wasn't even a great defender though.

Some people put him at Magic's level which is absurd, but he was a good defender at his best.

Tim Duncan has the accolades to go against Bird, but Larry Bird was a far more prominent player... for the same reason i have Shaq, Lebron & Kobe above Duncan in my list aswell...

Didn't you call LeBron the DPOY and MVP until he retires?

I got Bird behind MJ. If Bird's health wasnt on the decline, he would have been remembered for much longer. It's weird though;

Bird had back problems
Magic has HIV
MJ retired

Those three guys never really played as long as some guys today; LeBron*, Duncan... Just imagine how different things would be had they lasted much longer.
