Ok i have watched a lot of 90 film and basketball and the 90's was an entire different game. People payed the price for driving in the lane. Hand checking was acceptable and there was no 3 second rule. Do you think the following players could have effective careers playing in the 90's or 90's style ball and would production go up down or stay the same

1.) Kobe Bryant

2.) Allen Iverson

3.) Dwayne Wade

4.) Lebron James

5.) Tracy McGrady (prime)

A. There was a 3-second rule.

B. Hand-checking was outlawed in 1994.

90s ball wasn't that much different from what it is today...

According o these idiots on ESPN and TNT....today's players would KILL the previous generations. Shaq would murder everyone. And MAGIC JOHNSON would be a back up to LBJ. Kareem and Wilt would be in the top 30 CENTERS, but not top 5, and that was Wilbon. I HATE EVERYONE WHO THINKS LIKE THIS
Again - this team, as currently constructed won't make it out of the second round of the playoffs, let alone the West or win the Finals.---fido on 2011 Lakers

Kobe gets abused.

It's the only way to stop him.

No hand-checking is a joke, when it comes to Kobe. Watch the games. Do players really keep their hands off of Bryant?

Kobe would be putting up the same numbers as MJ if he played in the 90's, you think Kobe minds the physical play? no way, he would thrive off it.

Its too early to compare Lebron to Magic. How can they say that now? Magic led his team to a championship in his rookie season which then led to 4 more in his 13 year career. Lebron failed to lead his team to the playoffs his rookie season and made the Finals only once(just to get swept). Also those two are defintely top 5 centers. The clear cut top 5 Centers in NBA History are Kareem, Wilt, Russell, Shaq, and Hakeem. I cant see any other Center than can even come close to those 5.

I think it was closer to 25 but one season he did average 20 a game, but that was the season he was finally getting minutes. So his first real season i think.

He said TMAC in his prime.. Before his back problems, eg. TMAC playing for the magic.
You have to admit, TMAC was balling back when he played for the magic.
