As the title may suggest, what are your thoughts of today's physicality, in comparison to the "old school" or "old" era?
After watching this video
I was left contrasting the aggressiveness of the eras and trying to figure out possible factors. I was trying to dig up some statistics on how many technical fouls + flagrant fouls were called per year, but ESPN cuts off at 1999 -- the NBA, 2005.
Obviously, a lot more was allowed back in the older NBA era, but I was wondering what factors some of you thought played a role?
