"All I know is that people tend to forget how great the older great players were," says Bird. "It'll happen that way with me, too."

At no point in history was Malone considered the best basketball player of all-time.

John Wooden: "I've always considered Oscar Robertson to be the best player in the game. Now I'm not so sure that Larry Bird isn't."

Jerry West: "He is as nearly perfect as you can get in almost every phase of basketball."

Norm Drucker: "Oscar Robertson was and is the greatest guard I ever saw and for a long time I rated him as the greatest ballplayer. I have changed my mind after watching Larry Bird."

Larry Bird easily. I'd take Barkley Duncan Dirk and Kg over Malone as far as pfs go

Well the question is drafting considering longevity.

If not Karl Malone then how about...Scottie Pippen or David Robinson for 19 seasons never miss a game. Would we still take Larry Bird?

Yes.

Bird gives you the best chance at a championship. Surround Bird with role players and he'd get the best out of them and turn the team into a contender.

You clearly have no idea how good he was.

We're not talking about who gives better chance at championship. It's the tradeoff between better chance of championship and longevity.
