This is the era where Kobe was able to average 29/6/5 at age 22 in the RS, followed by averaging 29/7/6 in the Playoffs for the championship. He also averaged 30/7/6/2 at age 24 while setting the NBA record with 12 threes in a game, stuff like putting up 9 straight 40+ games, dropping 42 in one half on Jordan etc. No one's doing shit like this under today's soft rules. Kobe's 35 ppg is still the highest average since Jordan's 37 ppg in the 80s.

He didn't win 3 titles. 2 of them were handed to them by the league and the refs due to rigged WCFs, so he won one ring as second option in early 2000s. But I see what you are saying, guys like Harden are product of today's rules and game.

Now, here's a guy who's gonna give you a consistent 14 points and 7 rebounds every night, and then on top of that, you take a look at his blocked shots, and he's top 10 in the entire league.

Good stuff by Hubie! Thanks for posting that.

I have always been of the mindset that Jordan is simply too great of a star for LeBron to surmount. I have seen quite a few youngsters mention LeBron as GOAT, but I don't think that is a reasonable view to hold. Jordan was dominating an era with vastly more physical play allowed than any year LeBron played in. As great as LeBron is, he is not greater than Jordan.

Now we all know this guy can score. Every game he’s gonna give ya 20 plus points and 8-10 rebounds. And then ya look at the field goal percentage and he’s always above the 55% mark.

The good ole days, when you could put that hand on the hip and funnel guys one way, slow them down and just affect the offensive player much more.

Like Hubie said, everyone wants offense. The NFL keeps changing rules to handcuff defenses. Same for the NBA. MJ went up against THE 2 most physical teams EVER in the Bad Boy Pistons and 90's Knicks.

a senior citizen made the GOAT looked like a unskilled toddler with this simple method. imagine a prime pippen or rodman getting in his ass without the pussified no touching rules.

diva players nowadays have no idea how good they have it.
