Weakside floor-spreaders take defenders away from the strongside.

In the picture above, Joakim Noah has to leave Mosgov and flood to the strongside, otherwise the strongside won't even have 3 defenders on it.. But this is just a simple example of how weakside spacing necessitates strongside floods, all of which is beginning-level strategy used by every team in today's game.

Otoh, teams barely took any 3-pointers at all in previous eras, and therefore didn't have weakside floor-spacing, so offensive players frequently faced all 5 defenders on the strongside of the court, and therefore a tougher defensive environment.. Today's players never face a strongside with all 5 defenders on it, because teams ENSURE this doesn't happen with weakside floor-spacing.

Btw, the look how wide open the strongside flood leaves Mosgov.. If Lebron passes to him for an assist, how can that be considered on the same level as the needles MJ had to thread in the no-spacing 80's & 90's?

It's the biggest variable. History proves this.

There's only variable.

Does LeBron have a legit squad around him? If he does, he's winning it all. Simple as that.

Lebron with legit squad:
Fakes elbow injury and forfeits winning so that he could go to Miami.
Chokes and gets shutdown by JJ barea.
Gets dragged to a ring by the refs.
Ray allen happens when Lebrontards were already leaving the arena.
Loses FMVP to a 22 year old role player.

Average **** size of the locker room is the number one determinant. Bran is so big he can carry a bunch of pencil dick scrubs pretty damn far, but hes still only human. Eventually you run into a team full of Draymond Green, Harrison Barnes, Festue Ezili, Iguodala etc.
