Default Is the 90s the golden age for basketball?

I think MJ's dominance of the 90s overshadowed what a great decade the 90s was. Besides having the GOAT, 90s was also the decade of the centers, shaq, d-rob, hakeem, ewing. it was also an era of great PGs, penny stockton, kidd, payton, etc.... and don't forget grant hill, malone, barkley, webber.... just so mant great players.

And let's not forget all the greats that were produced in the 90s.... shaq, KG, duncan, kobe, ray allen, etc........

I think the talent level in the NBA is better than the 80s, it just seemed weak because MJ dominate the league, but when in reality it had the greatest bunch of players ever

How can it NOT be the 90s? That's when NBA was at its peak due to international recognition. What exactly is "golden age"?

The golden age was in the mid-late 80's.

Bird-Magic-MJ dominating the league. Lakers-Celtics rivalry. Bad Boy Pistons.

How can it get any better?

80s in terms of talent. 90s in terms of popularity domestically.
