It would be close, but Bird is one of the greatest 3PT shooters of all time (or from anywhere for that matter), so regardless if he decides to post-up or kill with jumpers, not much Pippen can do about it.

1s and 2s is an advantage for Bird as he'll probably shoot more 3s so a lot of his buckets will be worth twice what Pippen's are. I'll roll with Larry.

Bird for sure. There's a reason why he has all those assists: he had to get doubled consistently.

Larry Bird. Plus those 3s being worth 2 points, and 2s being worth 1 gives Bird an even bigger advantage. I would love to see that game.

You guys thaat picked bird obviously don't know a damn thing about basketball. Pippen would kill bird in a game on 1v1. There's no way bird at 6'9 could rise up and shoot enough outside shots over pippen at 6'8 to counter pippens superior footspeed and ability to drive to the basket.

Bird had a lot more moves than pippen ever had. Bird would just talk a little trash and dare pippen to shoot the outside jumper. If the game were played outside, Pippen would never hit a jumper. Bird would be draining threes in 20 mile an hour winds.

Do you really think bird has the footspeed to stay in front of pippen?
