That rationale is terrible. Him scoring 50 as a 40 year old means absolutely nothing with respect to what he'd do as a 30 year old.
Plus specialists imply a single standout defender on a team.. Whereas now coaches can scheme to stop players instead of hoping that 1 player can stop them..
In what world do you see Ray Allen or Paul Pierce doing a good job defending a player like Lebron or Kobe? Especially considering they were both mediocre defenders for nearly their entire careers. The direction the league has been going towards is a greater impact on coaching team defense versus specialists on a handful of teams.
Yea thats right Jordan wouldnt score 100 because these defenses are geared to stop 1 man like Lebron and Kobe, n*gga you a f**king idiot, you think defenses in Jordans era were geared to stop John Paxson, Ron Harper, BJ Armstrong... You claim your a old head, did YOU EVER watch Jordan play or were you just alive during his time in the league... Like Jordan didnt face Double and Triple teams all the time... Like they didnt send defenders over to cut off Jordans lane when he drove to the hole...
But thats how Jordan handled it, l
ook how much contact Starks and Oakley had on mike.. In todays league that play is blown dead as soon as Starks reached out and grabbed Jordans arms.
Kobe is a better scorer than Jordan
Really cause every stat in the book disagrees with that... Jordan was always the no.1 option take that into consideration and he damn near always shot 50% from the field, Kobe has always been the 2nd option and he only shot 50% from the field NEVER...
Look at Jordans FG %
Look at Kobe's FG%
Stupid n*ggas i swear man...
teams scored more back then
they shot a much better percentage
that = a defensive league?
Idiots like yourself wont understand the difference of the game today and back in the day, you just throw up these stupid "110 Points a game" "49% from the field" s**t.. and then think n*ggas didnt play defense....
