Subject: RE: Is Larry Bird the Greatest NBA Player Of All Time?
The Lakers team that the Bulls beat was NOT the Showtime Lakers team of the 80s. They were 43-39 the next year without Magic.
Stockton and Malone took 12 years to reach the Finals. NOT impressed.
In 1994-95, Horance Grant left the Bulls.
When the Bulls won 72 games in 1996---80% of their starting lineup was NEW from the previous year. It wasn't just Jordan.
We SAW what happened when it was JUST Jordan changing---not a lot of difference.
The Bulls didn't win half their games until Jordan's 4th year.
What was Boston's starting lineup for 2006-07 VS 2007-08?
When I'm talking about Bird, I'm talking about HIM being THE change to the starting lineup. Your examples have 3-4 changes to a starting lineup. It's not the same thing.
The 90s were weaker. None of that crop of 90s stars that came up in 1985-1986 won a THING in the 80s. We all know that.
'Nobody could stop Jordan'. The man couldn't get his team to win 1/2 their games until more help arrived in his 4th season. The GOAT needs a ceratin amount of help to win 60 games. The GOAT needs a certain amount of help to win championships. But the GOAT needing more help to win 1/2 the team's games? The GOAT being replaced by Pete Myers? I don't think so.
The 90s were weaker, no question---IMO.
Now I understand there are fundamental differences in the way we see things-----even the toughness of the 90s as an NBA decade... so I think we're done. There's not going to be any mind changing here.
