Yup, and as I pointed out, fewer and fewer (actual) fights happened since. It went from actual fists flying in the 70s/80s as fighting to today's version of fighting which is really just pushing and shoving (or just getting in somebody's face like the clip showing Dudley/Griffin).

I'm not saying I want to see basketball players throw punches all the time because that wuoldn't be called basketball then but I thought it was interesting how fighting in the NBA changed over the years.
