  • I believe as well there were players who were previews of the future. Gilbert Arenas definitely being one of them. Jordan, Kobe, Magic, Bird played faster than their competitors. There are things to dislike about the current NBA but this is how the game should’ve been played since day 1. I think all the GOAT players realized this.

  • I like the video and it was fun to watch and you made some good points but some of what you said, mostly with the numbers, was just wrong. And you also sometimes omitted important pieces of information. Like you can't just increase volume without accounting for a dip in efficiency and that's something people build complex models for. Also, you should have used 3pts% instead of makes because makes increase volume and stars are often the one who get to shoot the most and they've always made the most money. TLDR: Good video but you're using numbers wrong

  • Don’t really understand the Giannis insult for the 3PT shot but whatever, apparently the only 7 Footer who can’t shoot the 3 is Giannis. He’s still averaging 29PPG so take it or leave it.

  • Interesting info but as a viewer of the game I find this era of basketball a lot less pleasing to watch and find it less captivating for some reason. Maybe cause it values the individual efforts around scoring way more than anything else...but it's disguised as a team sport still. Glad I watched this but the league is undeniably soft regardless. Harden got fouled and gets 2 at the line just from reading this.

  • This is a great analysis of today’s game vs previous generations. Of course, we don’t have the opportunity to actually see what would really happen if today’s players played back on the day and the other way around. I do think the evidence points to: 1. Yesterday’s GOOD players would for the most part across the board have better stats than they used to for all of the reasons mentioned. (More opportunity, faster pace, more long range shooting) 2. Yesterday’s GREAT players would likely not have a big increase in stats, and depending on that specific player would actually determine if they were better or worse. All the same reasons why GOOD players are having better stats are the same reasons why the GREAT players wouldn’t. And this is more specifically speaking of the players that already scored a lot (MJ, Kobe, and other guys like that). Yesterday’s GREAT players already had the ball the majority of the time. They already took the most shots. MJ took about 24 FG attempts per game in the 94-95 season and shot 8 free throws per game. It’s not likely that Jordan is going to increase his usage. And if he did, that certainly wouldn’t help the other players increase their stats. Also, MJ played in an era where you couldn’t zone and help. The way they do today. They were essentially always playing 1 on 1. Of course, the greatest players are going to kill everyone 1 on 1. It’s hard to say if MJ would be better or worse today. Today’s best players are able to create so much space and 1 on 1 situations by being deadly from 3. Maybe Jordan would have developed a more consistent 3 point shot, but if he did, that would also be a completely different Jordan than what we remember. What would his game look like if he went from shooting 1.5 3 point attempts a game to 8 or 9? He’d look like someone we don’t recognize. People seem to think that Jordan would be able to shoot 8 or 9 3s a game. Make 3 or 4. Shoot 35 shots a game and have 5-7 big dunks every game. It doesn’t work like that. My point is that it’s unlikely that any of the all time greats would unlikely have huge stat changes one way or the other. The game has always been about the best players and they were going to get numbers regardless. There are a few notable exceptions such as Steve Nash (though not really in the ALL TIME GREAT discussion like Jordan). But Steve Nash would have definitely scored more, probably around 25 a game or so. But guys on his team like Amare Stoudamire would end up looking a lot more like Clint Capella or Andre Drummond.. The same goes for some of the greatest big men ever. Unless Shaq was surrounded by a lot of great wing defenders, he would be such a liability on defense in today’s game. Sure, he’d still get his, but at what cost? They’d just switch him out on guys like Steph, Dame, Luka, etc and they’d drop 40 or 50 on him while he only gets to play 20 minutes a game because he’s on the bench from either fouling, being too tired, or simply the coach benching him because the other team is killing him on defense. Comparing eras does get to be useless. There are only a handful of elite players that would legit dominate no matter what era the played in.

  • I’d like to disagree with the statement “there is less defensive effort today”. Defense is getting harder because players have to run their man off screens and playing pick and roll defense is so hard especially when you’re guarding an elite PNR player who can score and create. Also, NBA offenses arent just “giving the ball to the best player”. Sets and plays from the past are still alive but have evolved due to the SPACING. SPACING is the greatest difference between this era and the past. It has unlocked offense greatly and has allowed most players to shine. This is the reason for the scoring boom.

  • Because there are too many three pointers in today's NBA, soft defence ( mainly because of the rules ) and virtually zero half court game, it's like watching tennis transition basketball with mega scoring that favours offensive play and iso play individual basketball , it's a no brainer really, of course there's more scoring, Jordan would be absolutely killing it ( even more than he already did ) in today's NBA.

  • NBA offense is softer but is easily better than defense. But.. Defense can be improved I can think of 3 ideas minimum not used in the NBA that would exploit offense/ boost defense without giving up anything. You just need to watch every game and see how they do it. The numbers are right but numbers can be skewed with readiness and accurate plays. Defense will rise again but offense sells tickets and no one can argue that

  • As of 2-25-21 Almost every clip you show, no one is playing defense. Most players are practically open. Most high schools are playing man to man at least 3/4 quarter court. Most colleges play defense. So when these young players come to the league (I know some), they are surprised how easy it is to score a basket because of the lack of defense. The lack of defense also causes people to score within 15 seconds. I was always taught that, the man with ball will always tire faster trying to get around you. Out of the top 10 defensive teams, 7 have winning records (low team, Spurs 10th @ 16-11). 5 of those are also in the top 10 of 3 pts allowed (Knicks @ 10th). Opp 3pt % (out of top 10 defense), 4 teams are in top 5 (1NYK, 2PHX, 4UTA & 5LAL). There here is no excuse to let someone pull up 5 feet from the 3 pt line, hand down man down. Some of the better teams just play defense all over the court & won't let you shoot uncontested 3s. Best defensive players 1 Rudy Gobert 2 Ben Simmons 3 Myles Turner (only team not in top 10 defense or 20 wins [15-15] 4 Lebron James 5 Mikal Bridges (shortest player @ 6'6")

  • I can't believe this guy thinks this. That players just suddenly got "exponentially greater", offensively. He can't even see that it's because of the drastic increase in 3 point shots taken per game as well as deep 3's that's lead to a spike in scoring because... What does a drastic increase in 3's and deep 3's do? IT STRETCHES OUT THE DEFENSE! This means the amount of distance a defensive player has to move to recover on defense is, "exponentially greater", than ever before, thus you have a spike in scoring due to more open shots but perhaps more important, uncontested layups/dunks... It's not Houston Rocket science people. The true basketball purests already know this.
