WHO’S BETTER?

It’s a game I get caught up in a lot. Sports fans do it all the time. Larry Bird was asked…

Do you think there are better all-around players before the current era?
I don’t know. There’s some guys I really like to watch play. Draymond Greenis fun to watch. All of those [Michigan] State guys are because they defend, and they play, they play together — that’s how I like the game to be played. Move the ball, cut, pass; if you do the right things, you’ll get it right back. I don’t know, I hate to compare eras. It’s been so long since I played, but I liked to play the total game. Magic liked to play the total game. Some guys are just scorers. Some guys just defend and rebound. But the guys that are playing now are just as good as what we were when we played.”

On Frank Vogel:

“He’s got to start going after guys when they’re not doing what they’re supposed to do. And stay on them, whether you’ve got to take them out of the game when they’re not doing what they’re supposed to do or limit their minutes. I will say, he hasn’t done that enough.”
