Probably he a towel and ball boy.

just like there are pgs from the 90s who would get killed today because they arent quick enough.

He is not saying competition is easier. he's saying its easier to make plays, and thats true, you only have to look at scoreboards from europe and from the nba

If you followed along you know would that the lack of contact on the perimeter makes everybody faster today. Illegal screens are not called like they used to be. Now any point guard gets a running starts for a pick and roll from 25 feet away and there is no defense to it.

Just curious, how do you compare think a prime John Stockton compares with Ray Felton, Andre Miller, Lowry? Stockton, Hardaway, KJ, even Marbury playing with today's rules would be funny to see. They would have their way easier without question.

Nothing to see here.
Chris Paul said the same thing when he was comparing College Basketball to the NBA. So yeah you are right, there is nothing to see here.

obviously some would be better, but they would have to defend one another.

how do you think a big guard like penny hardaway would do trying to chase around quicker guards without handchecking them.

some guys from the 90s would dtruggle on defense, if they had to play today

Better coaching, better spacing, better talent, better athletes. Offensively, the NBA is a pass first PG's dream.

Euroleague is still a joke in comparison. I shudder thinking about the days I watched that shyt because of the lockout. Sony Weems 20 ppg over there. Krstic is about to win MVP. Before the NBA players left, they won MVP every week (Batum, Farmar, Kirilenko etc etc). And we've seen Euroleague superstars in the NBA look like absolute jokes (Spanoulis or whatever that scrub's name is).

Gary Payton and Micheal Jordan wouldn't have been as awesome as they were on defense if they couldn't use their hands. But they would been even deadlier offensively. I think it's silly to say the would have it easier on offense and then try to counter that by saying they wouldn't be able to defend with today's rules. That's the whole purpose of the thread you see, that you can't defend the perimeter with today's rule. Thanks for continuing to hammer home my nail of truth I guess.

I have to also add that today's game is more 1 on 1 oriented offensively. Basketball IQ's aren't as big of a deal today because people are specialists. There are people who do nothing but sit in the corner and shoot 3's and play defense. There are people who do absolutely nothing but get rebounds and try to block shots. There are guys who do nothing but score the ball. The old game had "basketball players"... these days people go wild when they see Landry Fields make smart plays because they are so used to see a selfish style of hoops. If the huge money with long term guaranteed contracts were around in the older days, I suspect this would have happened in the NBA sooner.

i dont think so. there were a lot of specialists back then. chuck person, rodman, mutombo, eaton, steve kerr...
90's bball was all about the iso. everybody screaming "illegal d" was part of the offense. that's why they allowed the zone again.

Yeah, knowing you'll actually get paid on time probably does make it easier to play ball.

It's been like that for years. Didn't the NBA said that they want to stop hand checking and make rules to more a perimeter game? The perimeter players have more space to operate and it's easy for them. After 2004, they made it more perimeter friendly as we see it today.
