Default Controversial Basketball opinion thread

Post opinions that you think are true but other people find blasphemous.
-I do not think the 96 Bulls are the greatest team of all time

I agree with this. It's harder to play with baggy shorts imo.

MJ, Magic, Russell, Kareem, Bird, Shaq, Kobe, Duncan, and Hakeem have had better careers than Wilt. Placing Wilt 10th all-time.

The Lakers won't get past OKC. Don't know if that's too controversial.

Shorts are shorter now than they were in the early '00's.

Westbrook is just as good as Durant. Yea, yea yea point to his poor efficiency, but i think defenses are worried about him just as much as Durant imo. He's explosive as hell, and teams really don't have an answer for him. Only thing he needs to work on is his decision making, then he'd be really unstoppable.

Kobe is extremely overrated. And not close to top 20 in terms of TALENT. Many players can do what he does, they just don't have the audacity to chuck so much

Steve Nash is the most overrated player of the last 15 years.
Doc Rivers was an average player and is an average head coach.
Vlade Divac is one of the best centers(Top 10) of the last 20 years.
Gary Payton is the best point guard of the last 20 years.
Blake Griffin is poor man's Shawn Kemp.

I have more but that'll do for now.

Kobe is still the best mid range shooter in the league and also the best scorer

Kobes overall impact and personal achievement dont stack up anywhere close to the rest of players in most peoples top 10. The Lakers made Kobe not vice versa. If I need to win a post season with a neutral team I would take Nash, Robinson, Dirk and others over Chuckbe.

LJ pic is from the early 90's. Iverson wasn't in the league until '96, and he wasn't wearing that on the court.

1. Guy I was responding to said he wishes the shorts now were the length they were in the early 90's.

2. I posted a pic of LJ and Chris Paul showing that the short length now is pretty similar to what it was in the early 90's, and the pic of AI was to show that the trend has actually been going back towards shorter shorts compared to the early '00's.

3. I know Iverson didn't wear shorts THAT long in a game... but I was just showing what the style used to be 10 years ago.
