Hall of Famer Larry Bird sat down with recently and opened up about how he thinks the current era of NBA players compare to his eras stars. And yes, even Larry Legend is surprised at just how much money is pouring into the game now.Q: Whats changed in this league, obviously, is the financial and economic impact of it all. When you guys talk to each other, guys who played 20, 30 years ago, are you as stunned as fans at all the money that has come into the game? A: Id be lying if I told you I thought it would get to this point. I never thought that. Im happy it has. That means the leagues doing well, the owners are doing well, the players are doing well. Thats what it was all about. But you got to remember, when I came into the league, the guys before me were bitchin about how much money I made. So it just goes down the line, so thats how it works.Q: As a former player, do you look at these guys and go, Do you know how lucky you are? Given all the money pouring into the league.A: No, I always tell the kids that you get what you deserve. Just leave the game better than you found it. And its good for everyone when it happens.Q: I saw you said recently in a New Yorker article, My era, you always think thats the greatest era, but Im not so sure anymore. Why do you believe that now? A: Because everybody that plays, no matter if it was 60s, 70s, 80s, they think their eras the best. Well, prove it to me. Like I said earlier, I think we have more stars than they do now. On every team, they had at least one, maybe two. Im talking about Dominique Wilkins -- you just go down the line. But in saying that, I dont think our eras any better than anyone elses, when it comes right down to it.Q: Do you think there are better all-around players before the current era? A: I dont know. Theres some guys I really like to watch play. Draymond Green is fun to watch. All of those [Michigan] State guys are because they defend, and they play, they play together -- thats how I like the game to be played. Move the ball, cut, pass; if you do the right things, youll get it right back. I dont know, I hate to compare eras. Its been so long since I played, but I liked to play the total game. Magic liked to play the total game. Some guys are just scorers. Some guys just defend and rebound. But the guys that are playing now are just as good as what we were when we played.Q: Youve been around the game your whole life. What would you do to put the game in a better place than where its at now? A: I dont know. Its hard, and we work on it continuously, is how the games called. The one thing Ive always been disappointed in is guys driving, jumping into the defensive player and getting calls. Its a league of points. They love to have points on the board. But I think good defenders get beat down sometimes because they dont get to play. Some guys in this league are in here because they play defense. I just wish they would clean up some of the areas in the officiating. Its really not the officials. Its really how the rules are written. But its getting to where guys are just driving, getting bail-out calls by jumping into defensive players, and thats not how the game, in my mind, is supposed to be played. Air Jordan 35 Sale .ca. Hey Kerry, big fan of yours, just finished reading your book. I think that we all saw the Canucks/Flames line brawl just after puck drop.
