Defense is no longer a viable option considering how referees call fouls at the smallest things.

Not just defense, it is both sides of the floor. DEFENSE: More than 3 seconds inside the paint. Hand check (not push just check) Getting near a jump shooter landing. - All allowed back then. OFFENSE: Ball carry is strictly called Travel is strictly called Illegal screens are strictly called. -All very common today.

People aren't gonna recognize this but Kevin Love, believe it or not, deserves a lot of credit for starting the end of the "big man in the key" trope. He was probably one of the first 3-pt shooting centers.

Jack Sickma and Bill Laimbeer were one of the first 3-pt shooting centers back in the late 80s and early 90s. Love arrived only 20 years later, and he isn't even a center, played primarily power forward his entire career. There were plenty of PFs shooting threes back in the 90s (Perkins, Mills, Chambers, Wallace, etc), but the one that really did it better than anyone, shooting over 37% and at a high volume for several seasons, was "Uncle" Cliff Robinson, who played mostly for the Blazers.

There were dozens of other 3 pt shooting pfs and centers before him and during his time. Dirk Nowitzki, Chris Bosh, Al Harrington, Channing Frye, Spencer Hawes are just a few I can name off the top of my head. He isn't even the most accomplished one

The Magic made popular the stretching power forward concept with Rashard Lewis, but even way before that there were big men shooting threes in the nba on the regular, like Sam Perkins on the Lakers or Jack Sikma on the Bucks, Bill Laimbeer on the Pistons or Cliff Robinson on the Blazers who hoisted around 400 3-pointers at a 37% clip on two seasons in the 90s.

obviously the most important detail is the 2018/19 season change of the shot clock reset from 24 to 14 on offensive rebounds, creating a huge difference in the amount of possessions (and of course shots) per game --- not sure why this stays under the radar and was not mentioned ---- yes there was a curve before then with the curry analytics era, but the 14 sec shot clock is what caused the real explosion

One of the reasons I really like Kwahi Leonard aka The Claw. He's a Jordan era throwback that has an all-around game and defense prowess. A true GOAT set of skills. He sadly fell into the team-hopping trap so prevalent today which diminishes his ability to be the building block of a dynasty team.

A player shooting 24 to 30 shots per game at 50 plus % from two and 38 to 40 % from three would dominate in any era. Jordan's ridiculous first step would put him at the foul line 20 times per game and he's not Lebron. Jordan made his foul shots.

He’s also become the “poster boy” for load management. And honestly people clown on Anthony Davis for being injury proned (which he is) but Kawhi Leonard is every bit if not more injury proned than him. Davis has played in 591 out of his teams available 764 games. 591/764 = 77.4% Kawhi has played in 576 out of his teams available 832 games. 576/832 = 69.2%

@Antonio-974 🤭Scoring= Volume, efficiency, offensive strength of teammates. If we just go by efficiency then Magic Johnson is a better scorer than Lebron. If we just go off volume, then Iverson is a better scorer than Lebron. We scale based on offensive strength of teammates too . That’s the difference between Kd shooting a 57.5% TS in OKC playoffs vs a 64.2% TS in GSW. Efg% is a good stat but True shooting is the holy grail because it includes free throws. The problem with the X player scored x amount of points in X amount of shots is that it doesn’t factor volume per game. Lebron for example shot a 56.2% TS and 50.9 efg in his Cleveland first Cleveland seasons where he was taking 20.8 FGA compared to the 62.2%Ts and 57.7% efg he had in Miami with Wade and Bosh taking on 18.2 FGa

@Antonio-974 🤭Did you just say Karl Malone and Lebron were better scorers than MJ ? MJ averaged 30.1 ppg on a 58% TS in 13 Chicago seasons. He had a 5 year stretch from 1987 to 1992 where he averaged 32.5 ppg on a 60.2% TS. He had a 5 year playoff stretch from 1988 to 1992 where he averaged 34.5 ppg on 59% TS. Joel Embiid scores the most points per minute for players with 300+ games…. Guess who has the most points per minutes for players with 500+ games ? MJ Guess who has more points per possession records than anyone ? It’s MJ lol.

@Trippinator Machine as a current player I would hand checks because I average 3-4 fouls a game until quite recently
Trippinator Machine
@Demon King thats all I ask for: let the players be more physical on defense. This would highly limit players ability to score (obviously) but I would love to see hand-checking return. Of course players nowadays are more skilled than ever before but its easy for all the stars in today’s game to score at high levels bc the defense isn’t really that physical or tenacious. Not their fault of course but I just wish more things could be done in that regard

@Enthusiast of Cute I'm an old head, and I call it soft because the touch fouls and all the technicals/flagrants that are called too easily which led to flopping. The high scoring thing isn't that much of an issue if they let defenders play physical defense again.
Enthusiast of Cute
It’s often forgotten by old heads who like to call the moder era “soft” that during the 60s, 70s and 80s the pace of the game and scoring could get absurd. It was only during the 90s and 2000s when the game was grounded down to a halt

Would like him to explore the part about the hand check rule more. If you can’t put your hand on the offensive player then you have to back off so they don’t dribble past you. That gives you room to raise up and shoot. The game started to evolve once that rule changed. I agree that players are better shooters nowadays but that’s a byproduct of what I said above not because they’re more skilled. If you watch Hakeem’s post move you can’t say he’s not as skilled, but instead had to match his skill with physicality. All these teams chucking up 3s has led to the demise of the low post game, which in turn makes games boring because there’s hardly a difference in style between teams.

I think there is another thing going on that’s not mentioned here. Back in the early 2000s the starting line up would have its stars and it would have mostly defensive specialists. Shooters would be on the bench. Now the rolls have reversed. Shooters start on the floor and the defensive guys are on the bench to start the game. If you can’t shoot, you just don’t have as much of a roll on a team, even if you’re pretty good on defence.

You are just about my favorite of all of the basketball TRvidrs, and with that said, I love some of these kind of detailed breakdowns and this one in particular interest me because I don't like today's style of basketball but I recognize how unique and different and revolutionary it is. With all that said I was hanging on every word as you were breaking this thing down and especially right after the Steve Nash interview, you made an interesting point that it's sort of true but completely false, let me explain what I mean. You talked about how most of us could name a lot of the high scores in the league but couldn't name the high rebounders in the league. I've always been a deep stats guy myself because I created my own unique fantasy basketball system that is unlike your traditional fantasy basketball where you play week to week. Week to week scoring eliminates head to head which is why fantasy football is so wildly popular and successful. Basketball baseball hockey etc with their week-to-week style takes all of the interest in it away. In week two week scoring it's not about who the best player is or at least the best player sometimes situationally but let's be honest, you don't bench Aaron rodgers. Even if it's a situation thing it's very rare that you bench your studs in football. But in basketball, if LeBron only has two games, you might start one of The Ball Brothers over him if they happen to have one of those five-game weeks. So years ago when me and my friends had started playing fantasy football and we saw how the format was so successful, we sat down and said to ourselves okay how can we translate that to basketball. and we came up with a format where you only play on Friday night because if you happen to go through the NBA schedule you will see that Friday nights are consistently the night of the week that has the most games. A busy week has 13 games a slow week has eight. So then we create a schedule that shows every team's schedule for every Friday night throughout the season and you draft based off of that. And you end up with a 20-week regular season and a 3 week playoff season. Because there's 23 Friday nights throughout the season every year minus All-Star weekend. So if kemba Walker plays 19 out of the 20 Friday nights during the regular season, it has two out of the three playoff games.... and Trey young only plays 10, it only has one during the playoffs.... Well you adjust accordingly and more than likely you're going to take kemba slightly ahead of Trey young even though Trey young might be the better pick as far as stats go. And then we came up with real world scoring because oddly enough fantasy basketball out there has strange formulas to do their scoring where if you get one three-pointer per night you get a bonus and if you hit a certain percentage of three pointers you get a bonus and that's not real world. Yes efficiency is rewarded in the real world but it's rewarded by you having better numbers and your team doing better as a result. So it still comes down to ultimately what a person's numbers are. Scoring rebounds assists blocks and steals. The big five. So we built in some bonuses for things like triple doubles and high percentage games and double doubles, and you would pick a team defense and it was simple because if you held your opponent under a certain point total and if you held them under certain percentages, you get the idea. the reason I'm bringing all of this up is because as a result of this you can't use traditional fantasy scoring outlets torun your league. You can use Yahoo fantasy for your draft and to manage your roster and to do 90% of your scoring but there's no way to build into your scoring setups, the bonuses that we had for team defenses and for individuals getting triple doubles and things like that. So as a result for 20 years, I did manual scoring in a spreadsheet and had to email it out to everybody the next morning on saturdays. And as a result, myself especially because I did the scoring but alsothe other guys in the league because they were always paying attention to what was happening with their own players as well as their opponents. But as a result we became much more focused on real stats and something that I noticed over the years and I used to complain about constantly to my friends, was this: the thing that you talk about, how people are paying attention to scoring but not rebounding, has always always been the case! ALLLLLWAYS. IT WOULD DRIVE ME NUTS THAT THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERED IN YOUR BOX SCORE TI ESPN AND TO YAHOO SPORTS AND PLACES LIKE THAT, WAS YOUR POINT TOTAL! Reggie Miller towards the end of his career still made the box scores every single night and by box scores what I'm talking about is the ticker on ESPN or whatever Sports network, and for example let's use ESPN again. When ESPN would flash scores let's say and not do a full breakdown of a game. Or if they were doing a brief breakdown that was later in sports center let's say and not the leading story that they gave a couple minutes to, they would always show the score up on the screen or to the side while they were showing some highlights let's say and then underneath the score they would have maybe the top player or two from each team. And their little stat line next to them. The newspapers would do the same kind of thing. they might do a little paragraph about a game and then at the bottom they would do the stat lines from the top couple guys in the game. In those circumstances the tickers the little stories in the newspaper whatever, the stat line they focused on the most and the only one they ever cared about! Only only! Was scoring. Reggie Miller at the end of his career was on the ESPN ticker and on the box score little highlight things like that almost every damn night, because he'd get 21 points or 23 points. But if you actually looked at his box score. You would see that he had 21 points one steal what assist no rebounds no blocks and he did nothing but try to get open and shoot the three that was it. He did not do a ton to help his team win other than scoring. And that's great but I'm just trying to point out that there is always been an inordinate amount of focus in scoring in basketball. Maybe it wasn't reflected as much in contracts but I don't believe that to be true either. it seemed to be that because you scored a lot you had a higher profile and the higher your profile the bigger your contracts were. it used to drive me insane as somebody that really paid attention to the actual detailed box scores and everybody's individual stats because I had to use them and know them for my league. You would see Kerry Kittles shown up next to the nets score on ESPN that night having scored 22 points, meanwhile Jason Kidd drove that offense, was not a horrible defender, and had 14 points 12 assists and 10 rebounds to go with two steals. And his 22 points for rebounds and two assists was the guy who got the Love on ESPN and as a result the higher profile which led to bigger contracts in the long run or more marketing money from endorsers. so like I said I was hanging on your every word and I'm not saying I disagree with your premise. I'm on board with everything you said except for that one thing about how scoring is way way more important now that it was back then. Maybe somehow it was rewarded differently, but it certainly was not appreciated any differently. It is always always been the primary focus when it comes to fans and the media. Just look at jordan. The guy was the greatest score of the league and it seemed just about, at least since the '60s, and from 84 until they finally broke through in 91, it was him scoring too much and the focus on his scoring that was holding them back. He needed wingman, he needed a coach to reel him in a little bit, he needed to share the ball and rely on other people to help them win. But the oohs and aahs we're all for Jordan, which translated to marketing dollars. Both for his team and himself.

one thing i think you missed on the Tony Parker comparision is that he may have shot 52% because he wasnt taking those outside shots often. id say his PPG would be closer to 24-24.5 but hey point still stands. Ray Allen took 5.7 3PA so i could just imagine the numbers he wouldve posted.

@Antonio-974 Stat totals don't tell the story like per game averages (what a player averages every time on the floor). Yea Lebron, Kobe, Kareem, Malone have higher point totals but MJ is 1st in all time ppg average and Bron is 5th but Kobe, Kareem, and Malone are not even in the top 5. In the playoffs, Jordan is still 1st all time in ppg average but Lebron, Kobe, Kareem, and Malone aren't even in the top 5. Stat totals just accumulate over time with the amount of games/years played. Imagine if Jordan played 20 years like the other guys with a 30 ppg average. He would've killed the total points record and Lebron wouldn't reach it unless he played 25 years

In his best season, Peja was an MVP candidate.

If people do not think that Arenas and Peja would score 30 today, they are the ones that are insane.

It’s also more difficult for young stars to show off their talents because they aren’t given as many opportunities as they would’ve in previous eras.

The traditional idea of positions has changed drastically instead of working as a team cohesively to win games it’s to see how can put up better stats for a spreadsheet. Traditionally the point guard isn’t supposed to make that many points but open up opportunities for others, lead the floor, and take charge only when necessary to keep the game alive then get the rest of the team going now. But honestly you can’t blame players that’s literally just the kind of environment the nba is.
RageForSeven Yıl önce
very interesting to hear talking about "position less basketball". You may not be familiar with football (soccer) and a Dutch player called Ruud Gullit (great player). He transitioned to coaching and he had a vision for something he called "beautiful football". In his mind, except for the goal keeper, every player had to be able to play at any positions to maximise dominance and alleviate the risk of bad "match up". It never really took off because the pitch is quite big, but his idea sounds very much like this notion of position-less basketball.

I never understand rebounds, or rather rebounds are a given but offensive rebounds can be game winning. But the focus is on both, which makes the stats askew as players can get 8 rebounds while doing nothing, while 4 offensive rebounds is a treasure. If possible I expect offensive rebounds to increase and occasionally become a championship reason ^__^

I always wondered what MJ would have been able to do in this league in his prime years. He would have been properly scary indeed. I think you hit the nail on the head though. Offensive tools keep getting better but defensive tools seem to get smaller. Defense is all about disrupting offensive rhythm so when you don't have the tools to do that of course you're not going to be as capable of stopping scorers.

@ABC XYZ i love the 3/4 idea. I mean in 2/3 if a person is shooting 40% from 3 in 10 attempts he already scored 12. So the person who only shoots 2s on the same number of attempts need to atleast make 60% of his shot. That's a huge gap. In the 3/4 scenario 4s is like 16 pts. That means the 3s guy needs just 50% made shot to score 15. That's a little fair tbh. 4/5 pts is even fairer the problem is so much time will be consumed at the ft. Lol

So what happened with "money ball" happened with the NBA. The stats showed the main game winner was position-less scoring. Basically - get all shooters. But I still think it's just easier to score when it's a foul to guard you. That's a bigger reason why we're seeing so many made shots from all over.

@Cold Snap it gave stats of specifc players lmao. Im saying the evidence needs to be true across the league and compared to other eras. They specifically left out certain years. If we are saying its easier to score now more than ever, the fg% and league ppg would show that and its just not true.

@Cold Snap it was full of anecdotes. I was hoping youd give me actual stats. Stats that was true across the league not just 1 star player or a couple of role players. Old players always does this "my era is harder trope. And people would always be bias, so to conclude if the defense was way harder, we need objectivity. We dont need a subjective anecdotes, we need objective data. And the objective data says that its harder to score in the 2ks than most of the 90s.

@Cold Snap ive read all of it. You basically quoted people. Anecdotal evidence is not "real". The only evidence you gave was the offensive rating. But offensive rating measures fg%*points minus free throws. Which means more 3pointers and fieldgoal makes gives you a higher offensive rating than and ones or drawing fouls and sinking freethrows. Thats why we are seeing an astronomic increase in offensive rating right now because they call less shooting fouls and shoot more 3s

@That Guy Luis I don't think that's it, that they're more skilled and athletic. I think they're just taught to be good shooters, first, second, and third. It's like money ball from MLB. 99% of the game is about scoring. If 90s players were told 1) the name of the game is scoring. and 2) you can't guard players anymore - it's a foul to guard. You'd see those athletic and skilled players work 100% more on shooting, and especially 3s, than on playing defense or even offense, or playing any other sort of role. There would be no place for Rodman, for example.
Holden Fegan

This is gonna be long and feel free to never respond lol.... There are legitimate reasons defense is lacking today, but an excessive amount of calls isn’t one. And in fact, statistically, teams are getting way less fouls on average. 2020-21 was the 2nd LOWEST for FTA/gm. 19-20 is 8th, 18-19 is 7th. All top 10 lowest are from the 2010s. To put that in perspective, the lowest FTA average in the 90s is the 22nd lowest year, this means that, on average, there were by far more FTA in the 90s than anywhere near today. Fouls have been downward trending with little deviation for the entire existence of basketball. The only difference is perhaps the types of fouls called, we didn’t see many off ball or loose ball fouls in the past, which is where we get these raw videos of players just getting at it, grinding and gritting to maybe get a loose ball, rebound, or perhaps prevent a cut. But shooting fouls were much more prominent mainly because a hand held rule still existed, it just wasn’t clarified yet. I mean, look at Lebron, just for example. The man takes damn near 70% of his shots at the rim, he’s a big, hulking man who has great quickness and jumping ability, he’s averaged less FTA than even some midrange guards from the 90s who were far better at free throws. By all means teams should be trying to hack at Lebron, and yet he gets calls at the rate of a guys who prioritize jumpers. Basketball reference keeps track of pretty much all league averages if you wanna fact check any of that.

With this scoring, you nailed it on the money. This also shows just how dominant Wilt Chamberlain was, seeing how despite the pace and scoring, players still can't catch his records. Insert; Bird, Miller, Mark Price, Joe Dumars, Chris Jackson, Robert Horry, Ray Allen, etc. and you have 30+ and a few 40+ scorers easily. Would love for you to do an average on the above mentioned Jimmy 🙂.

He made the point about everyone gets to eat. Just because scoring has increased doesn’t mean scoring a lot isn’t impressive. Since everybody are scoring more, top scorers are still amazing players in their own right, and their numbers should be respected. It might be better if they start to show stats along the line of OBS+ for PPG, adjusting the player’s performance against league’s average, to show how players today can be as dominant to everyone else as player’s back then.

Precisely! And it’s kinda why a lot of people seem to hate Steph and why they’ve damned the 3. Because frankly, there’s no good reason you can’t be good at threes. It’s solely skill. All these old heads who want to prop up their favorite players were worse at middies than Steph is at 3s. Steph basically shoved every “I coulda gone pro buuut...” douches to the ground. Steph has been riddled with ankle injury in a sport that requires extreme agility and quickness, and relied solely on his skill than just being a big brute, and they hate him for it

Plus most of the spin moves that you showed would have been called travelling 10-15 years ago. There is a lot more ball carries as well that go unpunished, or arent considered a carry, and the concept of the zero step has been stretched to its limits. Factor in that there is no handchecking allowed in the perimeter and there you have it.

@Daniel Gloyd You're forgetting the massive rule changes that helped the defense and hurt stars iso scoring. In Jordan's era you were essentially forced to guard everyone 1 on 1 with very little help defense allowed, and absolutely no zones. When those rules changed, many iso stars like Kobe and McGrady complained because it made their lives harder. So while individual defense can do less now, team defense has way more liberty than ever. Jordan would obviously still be phenomenal but he is not averaging 40 a game, no shot.

Ben specializing in defense makes him unable to catch up with current young players. Defense can be achieved if you really try and work the strength and stamina, but being good offensively needs hard work and many practices which Ben doesn't have or atleast doesn't try. That's why most of the players doesn't put much effort in defense coz they know they'll just get tired and a player can score in them anyway, unless a team only have 1 scoring threat like what happened in GSW vs MEM in play-in games.

MJ would've developed a killer 3-point shot if the league valued 3's as highly as they do now back in the 90's. You can't tell me that someone with as maniacal a work ethic as MJ wouldn't have worked himself to death improving his long-range shot

I blame Iverson. He came in with flashy crossovers that most of the time were carries. The fans liked it, though, so slowly the rules became less enforced.

Back in the 1990's, scoring was very low. Players were being criticized for not being able to shoot. The reason? Defense was prioritized. Since more defense meant less scoring and scoring was a big fan pleaser, the defensive rules changed . . .drastically. Hand checking, which limited Michael Jordan a great deal, was outlawed (and all subsequent guards benefited). And when defense wasn't being limited, offence was being unleashed. When Allen Iverson entered the league, he received a letter from the referees telling him that his crossover move was going to be whistled as a violation. Iverson said "I dare you" and became a magical ball handler. When I played Div 2 college ball in the 1960's having your hand on the side of a ball was an automatic whistle (being a "carry"). Players today are allowed to put their hand on the bottom of the ball and turn it over. All of these things allow for better ball handling.
