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...

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.

I like Larry Bird, but Duncan is the superior individual and team player. And also one of the best defenders in NBA History.

A peak Bird probably had a slight edge over a peak Duncan. In terms of careers...Duncan, and really, by a mile.

No question. But a peak Bird, from '84 to '86, won three straight MVPs, and two rings, and two FMVPs.

Definetly one of the greatest runs ever, i just choose Duncan dude to elite impact on both ends.
Duncan did also win back to back MVP in 02 and 03 and also won a chip, but not back to back.

Duncan stats in 02 and 03

25.2ppg 12.7rpg 3.7apg 2.5bpg
23.3ppg 12.9rpg 3.9apg 2.9bpg

thats basically 25 13 4 3

This is while being the anchor on defense, Larry had Robert Parish and Kevin to do the dirty work on D.
