If y'all n*ggas ain't happy with the today era then stop watching basketball .. Quit comparing two different eras.. That sh*t is mad annoying... And y'all n*gga act like LeBron the only one who complain about his calls... Real sh*t tho he does compla

Quit living in the past... There won't be another Jordan everybody is in their own lane

Its not a myth. Its about the crybabies like lebron and wade always looking for a call on top of the hip hop culture in the league that has players thinking that theyre owed something and not working that hard. When people think about players f!ghting in the 2000s they think about artest at the palace or melo sucker punching someone at msg. The 80s had so many brawls that its hard to even figure out which ones were the worst.

You right it is watered down, but that doesn't take away how easy the 80's and 90's was. Aside from the hard fouls and tougher players that era was kinda easy. I always looked at it like this, for example people try to sh*t on Kobe when compared to Jordan and his era. Jordan's biggest rivals were the pistons D, John Starks, Jeff Horneseck, Byron Russell, Gary Payton to name a few. Imagine a prime Kobe being guarded by those guys...he'll be charged with murder. Not saying Jordan wouldn't sh*t on todays comp, who knows. But the 80'spistons and 90's was easier
You're right in that regard but you forgot to mention the 10-15 7ft rim protectors that played in that era. Someone like mutumbo who you could plant in the middle and made penetration truly difficult. There is literally like two rim protectors in the nba today in hibbert and Howard....maybe chandler. Pretty much all the block leaders today get there blocks from the weakside....like ibaka.

"That's part of the game" Even the anouncers were some G's

Both benches clear out, n*gga gets clotheslined, screaming at the refs.....

Hit with a slap on the wrist and continued to play ball

sh*t would be a $75,000 fine, 10 game suspension, press conference from David Stern trying to save public image

Basketball in general was harder than it is today.

It's a whole lot softer. And yes, Reggie Miller was the only star flopping for a foul call. He wouldn't complain as much as these guys when he didn't get it though. He wouldn't stop playing defense. He manned the hell up.

People forget about Kermit Washington almost k!lling Rudy T on the court.

NBA players are raised in an era where it's cool and socially acceptable to be gay. What did you expect?

i don't know why people think players of today wouldn't survive. If flopping didnt get awarded now they wouldn't do it. It seems like in everything in life people automatically think things in the past were better or superior because of nostalgia

The league was better when we were fist f!ghting every few games
