        Dude you need to stay in your lane on this one. You can’t watch a few clips and think you know what you’re talking about.

        Secondly, Jordan got PLENTY of calls and you’d know that if you watched the games back then. People complained about it and said it was bs, but it happened. You picked a superstar who got superstar calls.

                  Hand Checking vs Zone Defense
                  What's tougher?

                    Zones easily.

                    Kobe summed it up perfectly

                    “But for scorers like myself and Carmelo and KD, the rules from the 80s can be more beneficial for us, because you have to be played straight up. You want to double team, you got to come all the way over. So, for us, I don’t care if you handcheck us with three hands. If there’s nobody behind you, you’re not going to stop us. So the zone I think cripples some of the top scorers.”

                            Why dont try your self play a more physical games if its not difficult bro it was so hard...and hand checking does not mean that you only hold in one side of the body its legal once you lean on the back or on the side of the body to manipulate their movement and not to stop their motions cause it will take a year before you can score if you can hold a player on the front cause they cant move at all...thats why hand checking is only legal on the side waist and back part

                              Old head's just like to pretend basketball was basically football on the hardcourt in their day. It's part of that in the snow uphill both ways bullshit the older generation always tries to feed the younger generation.

                                              Jimmy gonna make a video about advanced metrics saying it was easier and totally taking the player out of the equation. How about the fact that a flagrant foul nowadays was just a hard foul back 15 yrs ago. How about the fact that this point alone kept some players from driving the lane and passing out on the perimeter instead because he didnt want to risk his livelihood for the 10th time in that game. Metrics inly gives a fraction of the story and your trying to make it look as its the end all be all. Look nobody’s is really talking about the early 2000’s anyway were talk. From the mid 80’s to the late 90’s. Now you tell me that if lebron that cries every-time someone farts in his area wouldn’t have been denied some if his “metrics” If he played against the 80’s pistons. Sure he wouldve still scored and he would have adjusted im sure , but what would his numbers look like? Not the same I guarantee that. Thus is why we cant compare eras, we just have to understand they’re completely different and not for the better... defensively at least

                                                Then they added the defender cant even defend the shooters must be a foot or two space between them now.

Every damn time Wade went to the hoop he got a foul called. That shit was rigged. Anyhow these “fouls” reminded me of that series.

                                                            Here's what kills me...a lot of black people love to play the Stockholm Syndrome. Now I say "black people" because majority of us are the only ones who likes to criticize the Victims and not the Victim-izer...given the circumstances also that the NBA is predominantly Black . It's the same as today's r&b and rap where to many people complain about "it's not as good as it use to be", "mumble rap crap this and that"...my point is...there is a bigger power that controls the entity where celebrities dwell. Now the league is a lot different from back in the day...but...who's fault is that? I'm sure the idea wasn't the players right? Let's be real: the "league gotten soooo soft movement" may have been constructed from that infamous brawl of October 2005 if anyone get my gist? But guess what before that? It wasn't so different then these Old-School Players spewing "league so soft" diatribes who were also involved in a lot of the fights, dirty plays...and as well..the bitching & moaning either. To conclude my point, not to kiss any celebrity's ass i'm far from worshipping but these guys are just trying to make a living and have to go by the standards of rules. If not, punishment will be handed out and a lot of them wouldn't even think about going outside the box of disrespecting The Rules...because they are smart enough to infer that the punishment will be also...Severe. We play this game of said Stockholm Syndrome...but fail to realize...we are the ones who are truly getting laughed at because of it

                                                              Great video but you did cherry pick! But let's break down some things using common scense. If illegal defence was removed, it only means players really had to play defence unlike now, which is why the silent rule of allowing hard hits or fouls no one ever talks about, but you had to be a baller to peep the game. Regular fans miss a lot of things when it comes to the intricacies of the game. You can't compare the two eras! One allows you to be lazy, the other forces you to play the game! A lot of stars now days would be exposed in the 90's for their lack of of D, or maybe they would have worked on it. Bottom line man to man made it a mans game! You had to st least make a real true effort at playing D or your ass was bench bound. The game is faster now, but not better by any stretch of the imagination. This type of new game is not worse or better, but this era sure has a lot of one trick ponies in the leauge, would they even be in the league if the rules had not changed? Anyways good video.

But the thing people dont consider is how the defense became less physical but has gotten more strategic. Do I think the mondern nba is extremely un physical yes, I hope it becomes a little more physical than what it is. Same with football I think they have outlawed some of the hits that should not be in the game but then there's hits that should be legal. The game get meddled for the money whinch makes sense from a business perspective but I cant help but see that all the new rules and penalties always are strongly enforced on defense not offense

                                                                      • Gerson Norms Gerson Norms

                                                                                    I agree mainly because you gave me facts that I've seen before. I grew up watching the nba post hand check rule, and still dont completely agree however. The nba greats such as magic, bird, Thomas, lambieer and jordan all were forced to play better due to defenders hand checking them. Once this rule was established, scoring was easier, therefore, they could slack. This is what players such as AI, shaw, and kobe, along with ben Wallace all did during the hand check rule.

                                                                                        I agree that the average player today is definitely better than twenty years ago, but I don't agree about defense. Check Basketball reference web for stats. If the data there is correct (which I presume is OK) it shows one thing: defense stats (except defensive rebounds) are very low now, although last season 2018/19 shows that it may be a change in the good direction. Three stats for good aggressive defense are: steals, offensive rebounds and blocks. Year after year, since end of 90's, average stats per season for the whole of NBA are going down. Coincidence? Well, I don't know...

                                                                                          What went unsaid and Jordan himself alluded to it is that if Jordan had to play under the zone rules of today his numbers wouldn't be the same. The reason being is his three point shooting wasn't all that great. His mid range was and his driving to the basket was but if you can't drive through the zone or shoot over the zone in the mid range all the time then you have to stretch the floor with three point shooting as a two guard. His career three point average was simply that average at best and that's comparing him to earlier eras, not today's.
