@kingryan69 What are you suggesting?

@Robert Williams anyone who watched basketball in the 80's and 90s; knows Bird was clutch at deep 2 and three range, shooting percentage is a pretty accurate marker, shooting percentage when challenged is another

@kingryan69  @kingryan69  Really? How old would I have to be to know that? The idea that you're even suggesting that is ridiculous. How do you (personally) rate 3 point shooting? Both Ray and and Reggie shot more threes made more threes and made them at a better percentage than Bird. (Not my opinion) that's factual information. Now if you're factoring in total field goal percentage Bird's total FG% was slightly higher than those guys but that includes total shots...lay ups, dunks, tip ins etc.

@Robert Williams bird was a far better shooter than reggie and ray. you clearly are too young to know that. Steph is another level.

@B Vip Mic drop? (As in) you offered a meaningful refutation or as in your not savvy enough to even understand what you're reading or posting? That's rhetorical by the way. Is there a point related to this exchange that you wanted to make. Don't be that guy that just repeats "because I said so" just because you can't support what you're suggesting. It's okay to have an opinion, my comments however don't speak to my opinion.

I think hes right Larry Legend is a better rebounder better defender and a better shooter, while doncic has better scoring, better handles and passes although the passing is arguable because Larry was more of a sf/pf and Luka is more of a pg so Larry didnt really control the offense as much.

And you know, I just want to keep hooping. Having fun out there playing basketball." - Luka Doncic word for word in the actual postgame interview.

They hand assist out like candy now. Anyone not noticing the stats inflation over the last two decades is not paying attention. The league has completely handicap defenses, to make it way easier to score in todays games. They also changed what counts as an assist. Many of the assist lebron, Luka etc get would never have counted as assist in the 80s and early 90's. They started being significantly more lenient on what constitutes an assist.
