Default Watching Heat/Clippers tonight, reminded me of something.

The league is soft as cotton now a days. I know this is old news, but back in the day, if MJ was going off, starting 5/5 or 6/6 from the field. There would be a guy that would meet him at the rim, and make sure he thought twice about driving. Or a player on the opposing team that would check him with some cheap/dirty tactics.

Now a days, there's none of that. If you do, you're out of the game, and get suspended.

That reason alone prevents him from being the G.O.A.T.

Remember, back in the day, there were teams trying to take MJ's head off from the opening tip.

Players have it too easy these days.

It's been like that for years so we're all pretty much used to it. But I was born in 91 so can't really speak on the MJ days. However, I have watched enough footage from the 80/90's so I'll have to agree with your post about the defense.

Hank you really wanna go there? I went to bat for your sorry ass when ISH trolled the living fu** out of you and exposed you. One blowout doesn't make a team a contender or a pretender. Clippers still have the 3rd best record in the NBA, settle down.

LMFAO. league is soft as cotton. Back in the day, you'd get like 4-5 of those a game. Imagine what MJ went through on a nightly basis, compared to Lebron.........

Funny that you say that, tikay0. I was just thinking about how this Heat team would play under the old rules / era where physicality and handchecking was LEGAL.

NY, Indy, Portland, Utah ... Who wouldn't wanna watch those old Bulls teams lay into these "champions"

Gotta hate the pricks known as "Heat Fans"

Stadium is dead quiet as game end and 90% empty. Seriously so spoiled they get bored if they are leading by too much. Shameful.

and you're into that? And lebron was bombarding them from the perimeter and 4-5 something the GOAT wasn't really well at with his treys. Good luck getting a guy to meet him at the rim when he's shooting like that

Believe me, I'm not even talking about hand checking, etc. I'm primarily talking about enforcers that would make sure you'd think twice, if you were going off on them.

You even had guard enforcers like a Vernon Maxwell, that would literally start a fight with you, if you were owning his team. Or do super dirty things that would get you off your game.

With Lebron's mentality, would he be able to deal with that, without wilting?
