    Explanation points and capital letters don’t equal a good argument.

    You just seem like you’re screaming and pounding the keyboard.

    This makes no sense. Why would someone older glorify the past if the present was just as good? There would be no reason to. Obviously everyone would prefer if the current game was just as physical as the past, but it wasn't so we are left with two groups:

    1. People who saw it can reflect on it and appreciate it.
    2. People who didn't see it can complain, feel insecure, and wonder what it might have been like to see it.

    No one in their right fvcking mind would prefer viewing only this era rather than viewing this era and the 90s. The insecurity needs to stop. Be thankful that there are those around you that can describe to you what you missed. Anything else is biting the hand that feeds.

    Here's a clip of Steve Nash, a guy who played from 1997 to 2014 and won two MVP's in 2006 and 07 thanks to the rule changes the NBA put in, breaking it down to a basic level and confirming how people like David Stern, Rob Thorn and Jerry Colangelo to name a few altered all the defensive rules starting from the mid 90's (after the panic of the MJ
