I think the only position that has less athleticism is the Center position. Other than that though, I think the players now are more athletic. Skills I'm torn on. 90's they were more fundamentally sound. Players now are more diverse in their skill sets, but lack the fundamentals.

MJ and young Kobe from around 1998-2003 were more athletic than the vast majority of players today. But all in all I wouldn't disagree with someone saying there's more athleticism throughout the entire NBA right now than in the 90s.

Skill-wise...no way.

I said a combination of elite athleticism and elite skills, lol at Griffin and Howard :oldlol:

My list is still better though, Rose, RW and Wall are 'small'...

Literally no difference in the level of players in any era except the 70's. All these era's talent is the same. I mean, what exactly are you trying to get across anyways? Jordan is GOAT? :lol That's not an agenda thread worthy topic.

They aren't more diverse. No one can shoot a midrange shot and overall people are just poorer shooters. Passing is way worse than it used to be because of all this ISO ball.
