We're already watching a 90's (late 90's) team VS a 2013 team. You can make the comparison right now. 90's is kicking ass right now. Imagine if Bruce Bowen was still on the Spurs team. Lebron would have fits and run around the whole arena.


RIP Dad. I miss you so very much...

I doubt that statement. Smh at this perception. Look im a lebron hater but I see greatness in him. That should be the mentality of nba fans.

Idk about avg, but I would say next generation of basketball lebron would just be an all star nothing more because when other players would have the same type of physical gifts as him he would not nearly be as special since his whole game is based of that and not skill wise.

All I want for Christmas is a Laker girl :D

Really, what changes is east ball and west ball.


When the west is on top, the game is NOT as physical. I mean Shaq was a physical, but teams like Iverson's Sixers went through more physical battles in the East to get to the top. Even the Heat. It got chippy with the Bulls and Heat. Pacers and Heat. Pacer and Knicks, but those teams are LOADED with talenton top of that.



Blame Ron Artest for the changes in fouls and the amount of "fighting" allowed. As teh human species has evolved to know the dangers associates with head trauma, and how physical play can lead to star players being injured, the game SHOULD evolve.



Real Deal has explained how much more difficult great defensive schemes are know from back then.



I'll say this. In the 90s, you had a lot of guys who weren't NEARLY as DEDICATED to the game as they should have been.


Weed,coke,women,and just the lost of hunger from being a millionaire when you come form nothing.I think Jason Kidd and Grant Hill, followed by Garnett, Kobe, ray Allen and Steve Nash brought forth a NEW generation of great players who take care of themselves and the game. Throw Duncan in there.


The NBA is a GREAt product and I love it.



Compare LeBron to a Dominique Wilkins or something.


back then players were built more slender and made for a different style of play. Defense was always an East Conference thing though.
