Once you get past the blasphemy of comparing anyone to the Legend, the similarity in the statistical impacts of Larry Bird and LeBron James through their first six seasons is pretty interesting. Most of the media has been caught up in trying to proclaim LeBron the next Jordan or the next Magic...perhaps he's really the next generation of Bird. A 6-9 small forward that could score from everywhere, rebound like a power forward and pass like a guard...that description would have fit Bird before LeBron was even born.
Here is the full article, which looks at box score numbers as well as a variety of the newer "advanced" stats to build the comparison.
Be respectful and keep it clean. Thanks.
