By reputation for sure but I think in reality it would be closer than you think. I mean Bird was absolutely freakishly skilled.
1. Pippen would easily be able to contain Bird as one of the best perimeter players of All-Time, not to mention he can playmake for Lebron and vice versa
2. Lebron is just levels above Kawhi lmao, it isnt even comparable how much better of a scorer/passer he is, maybe defense Kawhi has over but Lebron is just stronger in general
True, but there is a certain ease to how Bird scored the ball, seemingly just at will at times. I'd think it would be tougher for Pippen than on first impression. The biggest problem, like you mentioned, would be the issue of two passers vs one, but with Kawhi off-ball Bird should still do well. Remember Kawhi thrived in an off-ball movement system in San Antonio.
Agreed but theres just levels man, nobody on that team comes close to lebron in terms of strength
True, Lebron 'Freight Train' James lol
Never heard of that nickname lol
Really, I've heard some announcers say that. I think both irl and in 2k. Apt description tho
Left. Right has the shooting advantage, but I think Left has the length and IQ to bother their shots
