However, not because of Human evolution or anything, but because of the plenitude of luxuries and modern conveniences the modern players have. For instance, a modern player has enough money to hire people to do things for them that a old school player had to do themselves. Thus a modern player can spend more time in the gym working on their game. The modern player has access to better nutritional science and can easily afford to have the best meals prepared for them. The modern player isn't cramed on a bus or commercial airliner to get to games, but has a private plane built to accommodate ballers. In addition modern scouting is much much better and goes world wide to find the best players. Also medical technology is much better, injuries that could be career ending a few decades ago now are treated with routine surgery and the player is back on the court in a few months. Less serious injuries are treated in a manner of days.
