    Larry Bird... I think he is the most underrated defender that I have ever seen. People dont realize how good of a defender Bird is. Wade can go inside, yeah I give him that. But he is not the best perimeter shooter in the leauge even in his prime he is never been a great shooter, he always likes to get inside. He is a slasher. Bird likes to read an offensive players mind. Since Wade likes to go in he will take that away from him, he wouldnt even bother covering him outside the 3 pt line. He would just wait for him near the basket.

    Offensively,,, there is no doubt that Bird wouldnt even break a sweat. He could just pull up from the 3 pt line. Shoot his mid range. What does a 6'3 guy could do against a 6'9 dead on spot shooter...? One word.. "Nothing" Once Bird gets in his rhythm there is no stopping him making those 3s. and 2s. And if he has the opportunity he will drive in, get a lay up and a foul..

    Bird vs Wade

    Obviously Bird, but I think most people here are too quick to dismiss wade. One on one? Wade has Bird beat in athleticism, but all other areas bird is superior

    Beside each and every great participant replaced right into a facet kick who did purely as lots yet replaced into neglected or overshadowed by ability of the different's fulfillment. Pippen replaced into to Jordan as Westbrook is to Durant, or Stockton replaced into to Malone, Magic to Kareem, Wade to Shaq, Kobe to Shaq, Billups to Anthony etc. those adult males couldnt do it by myself. So what LBJ joined the warmth it replaced right into a criminal commerce for this reason decrease him some slack. each and every participant that isnt underrated may be seen overvalued to the attention of the beholder.
