But if I was hypothetical, I'd say a noticeable change in athleticism and talent occured during the 80's, not so much a whole, but better individual talents that I believe would destroy other eras before them. MJ in his prime would of killed teams in the 40's, 50's, 60's, to the point where they would have to handicap him somehow.
