dudes the players in 90s were special, they played better defense and with more heart than any generation of NBA players... it just is what it is.... 90's NBA was the best basketball anyone has ever seen played... I feel bad cause not everyone grew up when some of us 80's babies did, seriously the games were good in november back then even, the intensity of a april playoff battle game, is how the games in NOVEMBER used to feel like im not crazy im not d*ck riding, its just really the evolution of basketball... we got lucky in the 90's... we had the goat plus couple guys off the all time 12 man roster right now we just got kobe and lebron
It seems like the intensity of games now doesn't pick up until the playoffs. Back then, the Knicks and Bulls would have an all out war on opening night.
Also, MJ sent the other legends of the 90's home without ANY rings! Olajuwon got his rings when MJ was playing baseball! Kobe is undeniably great, but Duncan, Garnett, and Wade have rings as well, in this decade.
