I recognize that Bird, Jordan, Magic were comparatively way more dominant in their eras than Kobe and Dirk. My point is that the sport's finally reached its critical mass where everything has now been done, the game is at its athletic peak, and the game is getting more and more revolutionized. When Jordan was in the game, he was only one of a few guys who could do what he could do. Now basically every swingman can do his moves. And there's 6'6'-6'7'' pt guards now, unlike in Magic's time when they were like 5'11-6'0''. I honestly think Kobe would've dominated too if he was in the 80s, unlike now where there's simply too many good players
