People get online and become so confrontational because they dont have to see the person they are talking to and they arent friends. Im sure some of the biggest idiots here wouldnt seem like it in person. But people get online and lose their minds.

I think that's the best part . Talking in person, people don't really go into detail. Personally found in person you run into just as many idiots too. Difference being is in person you'll run into people who have no idea what there talking about and watch a game a week or something. Atleast online most of the trolls(excluding the one liners) have a detailed response and in some way are using logic. I've literally heard people in person use a player being good at dunking as as a reason why he's better. "Exciting" = major bonus points in most casual basketball convos I've had in the real world. Atleast online even if you don't agree with somebody's opinion and he's clearly pushing agenda you know that he follows the game pretty closely.

I do agree it makes you dislike certain players\fanbases because of it. Still think the non stop arguing is what makes it fun tho.

I can see People magazine & other gossip outlets paying hundreds of thousands for all of the women he had sex with to tell their stories. Then when he announced he had HIV, all hell would break loose.

Jordan's gambling would've been major and I truly believe that with the power of the Internet & ESPN alone they would've made it such a big story that Jordan would have actually have been banned for a year or two by Stern caving to public pressure.

Im glad all of that happened in a different era than this.

Yeah, not constantly hearing about this type of stuff is what kept the 90s purely about basketball. The 90s just seemed more purely focused on basketball, with just a tiny percentage on other dramas going on. Now, the media seems to talk 50% about basketball itself and the other 50% is on drama, and I think that has to do with the internet bringing easy access to the drama. In the past I would see Jordan vs Barkley (or anybody really) and think "I am excited to see this match up, I wonder who is going to have a great night." Now, I see match ups like LeBron vs Rose and think "God damn LeBron is a douche. I hope Rose destroys him." Due to the information I know about players, it has become about rooting for specific outcomes more than hoping to see talents on display.
