Default Re: What would Larry Bird and Magic average in this Era?

You guys are arguing the merits of Bird and Magic with their biggest hater. There is no point in that.

Bird averaged highs of 30 ppg, 11 rpg and 8 apg playing alongside McHale, Parish, Ainge and Dennis Johnson amongst others. And playing against ATG sides.

So how are any of those farfetched? In a team which is just 'good' in this era he's going to get as many shots as he needs and without the competition in his own team he could drain 30 quite easily. When he was playing PF going against the likes of Moses Malone et al he was averaging 11 rpg. When the 87 team had injuries and needed him to playmake more, he was averaging almost 8 assists per game.

I mean, you can quibble a point here or there but generally he's going to be close to that production.
