Anyone noticed that since Jordan retired in 98...
 
No dominant bigman had been drafted since then The only decent bigman had been Stoudemire, Yao and Howard(:facepalm)

And...

Since Jordan the league had been flooded with extremely talented perimeters, more talent perimeters players had been drafted from 1996-2006 than NBA as a whole prior to that, Iverson, Kobe, Carter, McGrady, Wade, Lebron, Carmelo, etc....

Jordan ended the era of bigman, and ushered in the era of perimeter players

true dat :coleman:

Jordan changed the game forever. He ushered in the 21st century basketball era.

Not good for the game btw. I think MJ's impact has actually ruined the game big time.

much more shot jocking, ballhogging & much less passing & building a system with 5 very talented starters on the floor.

Jordan had a very interesting impact on the sport of basketball. Fiscally speaking he's probably had a bigger impact than any team sport athlete, at least in North America. No one player was more marketed or glamorized, the 90's itself served as little more than a platform for his modernized game. The dump it down back to the basket big man has become all but extinct and there has been a proliferation of face up jump shooting big men. There's certainly an argument to be made that Jordan's extraordinary popularity has impacted the manner in which taller, larger players play the game. There appears to be a rather sizable group of basketball fans that have a conflicting view or lasting image of Jordan's ultimate impact on the sport, a level of ambivalence.

Jordan retired in the 2003 NBA Season. He played for the Wizards.

Even big men shoot 3s and play on the perimeter.

Kevin Love needs to stay in the low block. yep he is shooting 3s now too...

Yeah, but it's not like Jordan lived on the perimeter. He didn't shoot many 3s and he had the best post game from a guard ever.

However, I will say that the current generation of players grew up wanting to be like Mike. The majority at least. So when they start hooping at a young age (before they realize their natural position), they all want to be that 6-6 SG. It doesn't help their development. Not for PGs who end up more like combos, nor for bigs who end up roaming too much on the perimeter and working on their handle and jumpshot rather than post moves.

Dwight is dominant. Yao, in the short time he was healthy, was probably the most unstoppable force since Shaq.

Yao Ming wasnt bad. :confusedshrug:

25/12 isnt good?

Dwight is pretty much a better verson of Zo and Brook Lopez haven't reach his prime yet.

But since Jordan 2 of the most dominant players were big men. Shaq and Duncan. Maybe its because finding a talented big man is so rare and most teams don't even encourage their big men to develop. Bynum is a good center he is not completely dominant but his game is still developing. Im pretty sure if players like Garnett,Duncan,or Shaq came along GM's would be dying to take them.

And a way that Jordan ruined the game is by ushering in a era that is star dominate and not really team dominate. Which in turn gave players a false sense of entitlement and cockiness. Though I feel like humble guys like Rose and Durant are changing that around...
