How do you rank MJ, Bird, and Magic?

1. MJ
2. Bird
3. Magic

For me

Didn't we just have this thread?

Bird always says he goes by championships...if players are similar peers (so he's not talking about players before his time or after his time.)

So Bird would rank...

1. Jordan
2. Magic
3. Bird

While Magic always said Bird was the better player, that Bird could do more.

Jordan would tell them both to frick off...as Jordan was a dick that doesn't want to give anyone else praise.

Stats ?

The game is not played on paper.

The real life accolades of peers is all that matters.

And people that watched them live. PPG is not the definition of a player.

You did this wrong. Easy to see why you're depressed.
Every 12 or 9 days this same thread with ONE of these three featured is the norm.
Now you will have to go to Shaq or Wilt or Russell or Dr J, to try to get human responses.

By championships

There’s literally no other way to rank them per the MSB

This could easily be a top 3 players in NBA history list and you'd get no argument from me

Magic/Bird made the NBA relevant.

MJ won after they were past their prime and after he got better players around him.

All 3 are great.

1. MJ
2. Magic gets the nod, what he did as a rookie in game 6 of the Finals is the stuff of legend.

Bird in Top 10 maybe, Jordan and Johnson are definitely Top 5.

I happen to agree with you, but I don't feel anything is easy when trying to pick the better player between Magic and Bird. Bird was the better scorer (fact), but Magic had more titles (fact).

Magic was the better playmaker and was the best point guard in history, while they were indistinguishable in pressure, career defining situations (all opinion).
