Default Lebron's bad back declining more rapidly than Larry Bird's?

After Bird's back got wrecked he never looked or played the same. Could still play but didn't dunk or play as athletic as he once did even though he had already had limited athleticism.

I saw LeBron laying on the sidelines all game the same way Bird used to... Bird's back wasn't even that bad at age 30 was it!? LeBron might be declining even faster than Larry Bird.

This is your response to a legitimate observation?

It's like you want your team to suck again.

Would you not be happier if LeBron wasn't on the Cavs?

Posting gifs I've posted here first is an admission of defeat in a thread I didn't even think was about winning or losing - you don't like hearing about Lebrons bad back?

Chronic back injuries are among the three most anatomically debilitating injuries an athlete can endure—the other two being lowery-body joints, namely the ankles and knees.

Thankfully, rehabilitatory treatments and training methods are much more well-developed today than they were in Bird's era; however, considering that LeBron has many more years of attrition on him than Bird did at the same juncture and has to expend a more extortionate price for his role on this Cavaliers team, it's not bound to mitigate it to the point where he can elongate his prime.

He has two years at the most of remaining as a top-five player in the league, IMO, and four more years until he hangs it up.
