Provide some video clips, where you can showcase some routine offensive plays like pick and roll, backdoor cuts etc from say the 80's or 90's, than provide video clips of those exact same offensive plays being run today and show how differently defenses react. Make sure that if you provide an example, we can't go back and see that exact same type of defense from the past because then we will disprove you. Once you find a clip of present-era defense reacting in a way never before done or seen in the 90's than maybe we can buy into your theory that defenses became more 'sophisticated'.
Until that time, your full of shit. Good luck.
As of now, people stating the opposite haven't brought any facts or stats to the table either, so why is the onus on me exactly?
I at least corrected the BS in here that FG% was lower before.
Once again, stop letting your hard on for me get in the way of things. I guess I'm your new obsession along with Wilt.
