    Hard to say. Can this average high school player dribble with both hands, without looking at the ball?

    No. The average HSer could not beat a HoFer with 6 rings.

    This place gets dumber by the minute.

    Nothing funny about disrespecting the legends of the past that paved the way. Lame shit. There would be no Magic, Stockton, etc. without people like Cousy. Show some f*cking respect.

    That doesn't even make sense...BB King's techniques are much more modern than Robert Johnson's. .

    A high school player against Cousy would look much the same against Cousy as they would against Jason Williams, Steve Nash, Magic Johnson or Pete Maravich.

    Because those are examples of players that borrowed major elements of Cousy's game. Cousy would make high school players of any era look retarded. Cousy regularly threw passes and made plays that would make any professional look stupid in any era, let alone high school kids. Even that 1950's rules way he dribbles or shoots only looks funny until you realize you still can't steal it out of his hands and he's still getting to every single place on the floor he wants to with impunity, and he's still sinking those push shots or driving around you if you guard him too close.
    Wow, amazing assists. Didn't expect that honestly.

    Ok just Robert Johnson then...

    Point is, a lot of kids who hate on the 60s are the ones who wouldn't respect pioneers like the guys I mentioned.
