+350 upboats now

ISB basically just convinced and/or reassured an entire middle school, the 90's were diluted

Any rule that tells a team how to play defense is stupid and ridiculous. Let the a team's strategy dictate what the other team should do.

They did a nice job countering this on the RealGM link. So no point in me repeating the obvious here, I'm sure y'all can substantiate your position there

Players in the 80's were not skilled enough to score with a shaded defense and multiple help side defenders.


So the league enforced Illegal Defense to make it easier for MJ, Drexler, Bird, Wilkins to score.

This information needs to be forced upon all NBA fans until they fully understand the impact of illegal defense rules.


+Jordan had no contemporaries at his position, the only other elite players in the 90s were centers and power forwards, the greatest defender he faced in that decade was Gary Payton, a point guard, it's a joke.

Prime Payton would be the best perimeter defender in the league now......


But you knew that already.....

Yeah that kid says a lot of dumb shit. The Glove brought home a DPOY in a league dominated by bigs. That says something.

Behind Kawhi and Dray, sure

Doesn't change the fact that Jordan's contemporaries at the 2 guard position were awful in the 90s and he rarely faced competent individual competition

(oooh, 2 games in a single series against Payton, wow, he really had it rough!! LMAO, stop!)


Then you factor in illegal defense rules, turning every possession into a glorified game of 1 on 1 and you understand why things turned out the way they did.

The 90s were gimmick driven and watered down by expansion/

Dray guards the perimeter on a regular basis, this is the modern NBA, not the 90s, don't play stupid/

The #facts remain

You can't ignore the impact of illegal defense.
