    He looks like he developed a shot over the years. In his final game he was hitting shots. Imagine him being able to palm and travel with the ball though!

Someone at half time proceeds to tell me he is only 8 years removed from playing pro ball here in Australia... same league Lamelo and a few other NBA cats played in.

    Basically, you're a product of your era/environment. Regardless of the time, they'd be effective.
    Lol I had that happen to me in college once. I'm a solid 6'2, reasonably athletic back then....was playing against this fat, balding white guy who couldn't have been more than 5'8 and moved like a slug going uphill in winter. This dude would just throw up these WTF skyhooks from like the free throw line. After the first 3 went in consecutively I was like

    Dude was uncoordinated as could be, couldn't dribble or drive past a lamp post, but would just throw up the ugliest shots and swishing em like nothing.

    Cousy still sharp as a tack at 93.


    What these younger generation people fail to realize is that the NBA players of yesteryear were the best athletes on the planet back then as they are today in 2022. So the notion that they were plumbers and firemen is silly.

    similar to when Stephen A. said, had the Warriors lost to the Grizzlies, it'd have been the lack of physicality, not mentality. As if their mind shrinks their physicality.

I don't think Cousy is definitely better than CP3 but he may have a greater legacy. At least it's debatable.
    We'll at least there's some sign of intelligence in this thread.

    Yeah he would because he'd have 70 years of hindsight. If we're talking a time travel scenario then yeah sure he'd get worked.

    He is barely 6 feet.
    Can't play defense in modern nba because he isn't fast enough.
    Cant shoot and is not athletic.

    That is a death sentence for any draft.

    He'd have problems in college let alone nba.

    I don't have a fortune 500 list of those who survived from that era. But that'd probably be it.
