SAS: β€œLuka Doncic is the baddest white dude since Larry Bird! Bird is known as Larry Legend..but it took time for the league to admit he was legit. Doubters said he was propped up just cause he was white. Larry had to light some teams up, but Luka has that respect already and [he] just turned 22!” m.youtube.com/watch?v=NJ2…

We all know Jokic is the MVP frontrunner, rightfully so. But Julius Randle's MVP candidacy is real and it's time we start taking it seriously. Unreal season, kind of shit you could only do on MyPlayer on 2k.

This season Julius Randle averaged 20+ Pts 10+ Rebounds 5+ Assists and shot 40%+ from 3. The only player to ever do that is Larry Bird in 1984-85

This post got deleted so I reposted with a source

I hope this club catches on, I’m calling the Bird Club 20 Pts, 10 boards, 5 assists, 40% from 3

This season, Julius Randle averaged 20+ Points, 10+ rebounds, 5+ Assist, while shooting 40% from 3. The only other player in nba history to do that is Larry Bird in 1984-85

Nikola Jokic can potentially enter this group tonight against Portland. He more than meets the requirements in every other stat but is shooting .393 from 3.

Julius Randle Stats: 24.2 Points 10.2 Rebounds, 41.4% from 3

An interesting stat to add is that Randle averaged 5.5 attempts per game while Jokic is averaging 3.3 and Bird did it on 1.6 attempts. While this may be considered a Thaddeus Young stat, 20,10,5 and 40% are pretty commonly used benchmarks for their respective stats. Also, these benchmarks do a pretty great job showing both Jokic and Randle’s impact on their respective teams. Being that big who can basically do whatever your team needs.

This hasn’t been done in 36 years.

Why do people compare Luka Doncic and Larry Bird?

Like I have eyes, I see that they’re both white but when it comes to their play styles I really don’t think they’re that similar unless there’s something I’m missing.

Luka is a unique player he’s not really an exact copy of anyone, but if I were to chose a player it would be someone like Harden not Larry Bird.

I know that sometimes people don’t always talk about play styles when they’re comparing players, see Jordan and Lebron. We compare them regularly but more with their achievements not play styles. So maybe that’s the case with Luka and Larry people are just comparing their careers. But even then it seems strange, obviously Larry has had the better career at this point in Luka’s career.

So am I missing something or just digging too deep into these kind of comparisons.

Larry Bird Vs Magic Johnson

Who do you think is better? Personally I would choose Larry Bird instead of Magic. He was the best shooter in the league in his prime. He was a better defender than Magic imo. And he wasn't that much worse at passing than Magic Johnson. Nothing against Magic but I would choose Larry over him. Magic is still great but I think Larry Bird was better overall. They both had great teammates throughout their career so thats another thing that makes it harder to pick between them.

Who was the better defender between Larry Bird and Magic Johnson?

Larry made a couple all-defensive team selections while Magic has none, although he was also really good at steals. Was Magic a better perimeter defender than Larry, because I'd imagine him being able to move much quicker.

EDIT: It appears the answer is unanimously Bird
