During ESPN’s First Take, Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless discussed Reggie Miller saying on the Dan Patrick show that he would take a 30 year old Larry Bird over a 30 year old LeBron. No surprise to anyone, Skip agreed with Reggie but Stephen A. also picked ¬†Larry Legend because of Bird’s “intangibles about winning” and¬†clutchness.

I’m not going to say much on this but I will say, as would most who had the pleasure of watching Bird in the 80s on a few occasions, I have to agree with First take hosts.

This debate has come up a few times in the past on the ESPN show and here’s a clip from 2014 of the two debating whether LeBron is better than Bird.

And here’s 2 other outspoken hosts (Bill Simmons and Jalen Rose) on the debate also back in 2014.
