Re: What to make of the big decline in individual scoring averages?
The exact same trend happend from the early 60's transitioning into the early 70's. In 40 years all the future teenagers will have all the answers we need to know:
*It was a weak-era
*Lack of proper nutrition and training
*The league was more primitive particularly defenses
*Kobe would never score 35 per game or 81 points in the modern era
*Lack of athleticism
*Chinese were only just being allowed into the league back then
