The Greatest All-Around Players In NBA History
5 – Larry Bird
A 3-time Most Valuable Player, Larry Bird was the cornerstone of the Celtic championship teams in the 1980s. While he’s widely known for scoring (24.3 career scorer) and shooting prowess (37.6% career shooter from beyond), Bird was a fierce competitor off the glass, averaging double digits rebounds in 6 seasons. He may not look the part but Bird was also a tough defender out of pure smarts and effort. Larry Legend also got a bird’s eye view of the court allowing him to make sweet dishes every now and then. His most complete statistical season was in 1984-1985 where he normed 28.7 points, 10.5 boards, 6.6 dimes, 1.6 steals, and 1.2 blocks while shooting 42.7% from distance.
