It's true that Bird had a better quality team than Walker did as a
rookie but I remind you that the Celtics team that Bird inherited won
only 29 games the year before his arrival (1978 I think). It's not
like he inherited a playoff team or anything. It also shows the
strength of the league back then (not this watered down crap we see
today) if a team with ML Carr, Cedric Maxwell, and Tiny Archibald only
won 29 games.
