Arrow Illegal Defense vs. No Illegal Defense




Notice the paint camper shading LeBron in the post? This is illegal defense in the 80's and 90's. You couldn't double team like that. You had to go at the man, not zoning off and covering space.

Notice how much floor spacing there was in the 90's? That was due to Illegal defense (rule-enforced spacing!). The defenders HAD to clear out and guard their man. EVEN if he had no shooting ability. The rules FORCED them to space the floor.

To get that level of spacing today you need 3PT SHOOTERS (shooting encouraged spacing).

TBH this is why the college game is superior despite having inferior player to the pro game.

True puriests know.

A good stiff arm resolves both.

This is very close to being Illegal Offense, which was illegal in the late 80s and 90s.

LeBron used illegal offense to his advantage all throughout the 2015 Finals.

An era where you can just advance the ball easily to half court without needing to dribble with your back to the defender while advancing the ball is a joke to begin with.

I can't believe my join date is earlier on RGM. I would have been a Dec 13er if not for Jeff's archaic registration practices!

My fav response so far


"So MJ was a scrub?"


"No. But he wouldn't be as elite if he played today. He looked like a God playing against the 90s scrubs."
