but the major difference is on pure basketball skills. the gap is a huge hole when you compare 80's players to 00's.

damn, is there someone who claims that we are entering the golden years and back up his absurd ideas??

for me 80s and 90s were easily the best(this is a biased aged view tho). their has been a big decline in talent and skill, enough that i stopped watching for awhile due to the fact it was just dreadful.
i would have loved to have been able to have watched 60s and 70s, nothing would top russel/chamberlain.
i would say 80s and 90s had better players, but 60s and 70s and 80s had better teams.
we all agree the talent is lacking. lebron for me, is a breath of fresh air

90s was a little waterred down, the showtime lakers got old, the larry bird celtics got old, and the bad boy pistons got old

for me the 2000s was great, LAKERS
