Everyone here acts like 90's ball was legendary and physical and epic. well guess what, when u were watching it u were a fuking kid so yeah it looked awesome. but that's just it. it's just a legend now and every year the stories gets more outrageous. now here is reality.

sorry but i dont see the extreme physicality and hardcore defense. in fact they seemed weaker and slower back then. and their ball handling sucked more. yeah they had hand checking back then but so what. im sorry but King James would annihilate them

wow, wtf are people talking about when they say people from the 90s are better? Just a hardcore case of nostalgia, there were two wide open dunks on both sides in the first 2 minutes of the game lmao

Old school defense

Sidenote: My favorite part is at 1:55

Danny Ainge: Michael Jordan is the greatest because he played on both sides of the court.

Magic: Michael dominated on offense and defense.

Barkley: They always say "Who's the next Michael Jordan?" and they only look at offense. Michael Jordan was the best defensive player who played in our era. And that's what separated him.

Kenny: Agreed. The domination everywhere.

Meanwhile on the misc jordan is looked upon has having poverty defense that pales in comparison to pippen's secret service type defense.

You can't possibly be this stupid. You DO realize there are more than just 2 videos on the ENITRE internet and the majority of 90s game are identical to these 2 right?

He's the GOAT for a reason, unfortunately you can't use his play alone as a generalization for the whole 90s era.

yeah the sport gets more and more athletic every year. Players get bigger, faster and stronger with each coming season. Heck post moves now-a-day are a 1000x more intracit than they were in the 70's.

90's basketball was the best for anyone who understands the game. overall, the players were less athletic, but compensated by actually intelligently and for the team. today's NBA is comprised of thugs and idiots who possess insane athletic ability, but hardly any fundamentals or passion for the game. kobe is the only player who currently embodies 90s basketball. very few players in modern day NBA are complete players like mj, malone, hakeem, pippen, 90s legends were back in the day.

as good as lebron is, he wouldn't be as effective at scoring if the rules weren't changed. he would have to adapt and build a mid range shot like every other good player back then. hand checking would let defenders push him away from the basket on drives and the lack of defensive 3 seconds would allow opposing teams to clog up the middle. his scoring would suffer but his assists and defensive stats would be skyrocket

athleticism isn't everything.

athleticism isn't everything.Was tempted to stop reading this post when you used the cliche "thug" and "low bball iq" generalizations, but read on and your idiocy is incredible. Negged this post and I hope someone with a huge rep power puts you into the red. Holy fuk you're an idiot.

1.) LeBron's mid-range accuracy this year is higher than Jordan's and he's shooting 42 percent from three. Low usage rate, sure, but just watch the games. The myth that he can't shoot is just that...a myth.
2.) The game has evolved, offensively and defensively. You can make the case that 90's D was "physical" but it was brutish. Modern defense is played in a team manner with formations, double teams and constant switching as opposed to the 90's heavy favoritism to 1 on 1, and is unlike anything Jordan has ever seen...lol in the 90's you couldn't even play zone. Offensively btw, today's game is about efficiency and letting the player with the most open shot shoot...rather than forcing the ball to your big man in the post and letting him throw up 32 attempts.
3.) There are just as many "complete" player's in today's NBA as there were in the 90's NBA...your argument should be that there were more complete big men in the 90's but this has more to do with 90's offenses catering to big man rather than today's big men really being that much worse to be honest.

1. I think you mean... "intricate".

2. Ummm.... no. Hakeem and McHale's post moves chit on everyone's from this era. There's a reason why current stars are going to work with Hakeem right now.

Very true. This started with Jordan unfortunately. Blame him, Nike and Gatorade for marketing the chit out of him too highlighting his scoring more than anything else.

I dont think anyone in the 90's had any athletic ability as good as lebron modern day. just look at the leg size comparison. there's a huge difference in being a mesomorph in the 90's in comparison to today, such as lebron. even if he's taking it to the hoop to dunk and gets fouled, his bone density is so thick that it knocks anyone that collides with him out of the way.

And lol again if you think anyone would be able to hand-check LeBron. Stop letting nostalgia cloud your perception.

KG? Rose? Westbrook? Regardless of what people says about Westbrook and his attitude, he has passion for the game and wants to win. He has killer instinct. Also CP3, Lebron, Noah, Nash, Pierce, etc, etc. The list goes on.

yes, i'm retarded enough to know defensive strategy changes with the hand checking rule. and yes i'm "clouded" enough to think "lebron" would be the first immune to a hand check, lol.
