Unhappy what star players of the past would fail today?

You know how some people say today's swingmen would have a hard time back in the old school days because of the physicality, are there any star players from back in the day who's games wouldn't translate well to today?

most defensive stalwarts, aka payton, cooper, jordan on defense, dumars, pippen, etc, most of them would have to asjust to stern's sissified new rules or they would foul out in 10 minutes.

He was also a physical player in the paint who fouled frequently then. If he fouled that much in the 80s, he'd probably foul out in the second quarter today.
