Default Non offensive players like Rodman weren't a problem in 90's like they would be now

You couldn't zone in the 90's, that means, you couldn't leave guys like Rodman open, you had to stick to him. You couldn't have situation like these in 90's.
In this picture, Noah leave non offensive player Joel open and come to stop Lebron's isolation.

In the 90's, you couldn't do that. Non-offensive players like Rodman didn't hurt superstars isolations. In this generation, they do.

This is true. I have no other input. All role players today have to be able to shoot from distance or they are a liability.

True is true. There is no other input I can give. I'm inputless.

Dennis Rodman made more field goals on Shaquille O'Neal than vice-versa in the 1996 NBA Playoffs.

What zone? GS didn't have to play zone at all. They just let Lebron brick his way to 29% outside 5 feet in single coverage to win a ring.

Yes. When Kerr put Bogut on Tony Allen, they turned the series around.

Ok, let's just leave Rodman unmarked and have no one box him out. Let me know how that works out for you.

Rodman was a decent scorer before coming to the Bulls. His team was just so good that he wanted to troll the league by scoring as little as possible.

You are off-topic, but still, often Warriors had a defender waiting for Lebron just outside the pain, that wouldn't be allowed in 90's.

In 90's, that strategy wouldn't be successful.
