WAINAO N°38 - ALL THAT CAN FLY IS NOT A BIRD
WHY NOW? BECAUSE LARRY BIRD, IS STILL THE GREATEST SMALL FORWARD EVER. ANALYTICS ARE SO OVERWHELMING TODAY THAT PEOPLE TRY TO DETERMINE WHO'S THE BEST PLAYER JUST LOOKING AT A SCREEN WITH A BUNCH OF NUMBERS .
Larry is often compared to lebron james for that title. The main argument for lebron is based on stats.
That day, By refusing to go get a record that was up for the taking, larry proved that he Could easily have had better stats and more records but he wanted to win games and championships...not stat battles.
Nevertheless, knowing the fact that bron' was been blessed with way more natural gifts.... and they still have basically the same stats. Larry wins that battle too..
“GREATNESS is not measured by stats…..in fact, real greatness starts when you become way better than your stats."
“ The greatest small forward ever was a white dude who could barely jump, was slow as fuck but still gave the business to everybody! that tells you how good he was ....and when the game was close....”
