    I can see the logic here but I feel like the video ignores the fact that with higher usage that the efficiency of some of these “ good not great” old players would probably drop off. You can't turn 37% on under one attempt per game shooter into a 37% on 8 just by making them shoot 7 more shots a game.

    Everything that Jimmy spoke on in the clip in regards to the modern game is why the NBA is dead. Any alleged mainstream media reports of the game being elevated to ‘all new heights’ are embellished. Ask the average longtime KNOWLEDGEABLE NBA fan, and so many of them have grown lukewarm (at best) on “The Association”. On the flip side, this is why football is king ... and I’m a basketball diehard/lifer/self-proclaimed ‘historian’ admitting this.

    If AI played today he'd be one of the best scorers in the league. Even back then with "bully ball" and "actual defense" he made them look like children in recess. If he played today, Kyrie would cower in fear.

    I agree Curry got people shooting more but LeBron changed the game also by teams getting the ball to their best player not just a point guard. But don't get this twisted. Shooting a ton of 3s for the sake of putting up 3s as per analytics is fools gold. The best shot is the open highest percentage shot. Not just a 3

    The thing is, now every player on the court is a threat offensively. Which is how it should be imo.What I mean by that is everyone on the court should be considered a threat and defense should reflect that. But good defense is hard to come by no matter the era, so when only 1 or 2 players were offensive threats back then, it posed no problem. Now that everyone can be a bucket, averaging 20 is easier than ever.

    I still remember watching the Suns in the early 90s, score 107 points in just the 1st half against the Nuggets, without attempting a single 3 pointer. And I still remember teams avging 110ppg on minimal 3s in the 80s and the pace was actually faster than today's. Great vid, tho. It does show how the game has evolved, tremendously.

    You can’t play good defense if you can’t help off the 3 point line. This era has more uncontested layups than ever. The lane never has defenders helping. Get rid of the corner 3 and move the top line back a touch. All problems solved.

    You can say that for any scorer pre-2010. If Isaiah Thomas could score 29 ppg, Iverson would undoubtedly terrorize this league. Arenas would be a Lillard and Westbrook hybrid. Wade would eviscerate defenses and live on the free throw line more than Harden. TMac and Kobe would go toe to toe for scoring titles. Pierce and Carter would look even better. I could go on and on, but I hope you get the point.

    The Tony Parker example doesn’t work. You can’t adjust his stats and keep the same efficiency, it doesn’t work like that. Also, he was a terrible 3PT shooter on extremely low efficiency. It’s incredible unrealistic that he’d shoot over 30% from 3 on more than 3 attempts.

    I actually find the game rather boring to watch now, despite the increase in shooting skill. Just seems like a bucket fest. Maybe the solution is to get rid of the 3 point shot.

    This doesn’t make any sense - if player’s usage doesn’t change, why would their FGA change if the pace of play barely changed?... the biggest difference in today’s ball is that now 3 players of a team take 90% of the shots rather than 50% of the shots. Tell me who’s usage Tony Parker would consume to inflate his stats?

    I blame the ''lazy'' defense on the amount fouls you can easily get as a defender . As a defender it seem the rules are more stacked against you than the shooter making it harder for them to stop them.

    Fg attempts is another thing too



    If they didn’t reward flopping ,didn’t give free throws to plays who jump into players when shooting and allow a little contact when blocking we could see defenses again



    Evolution of the 3, more advanced offenses, emphasis on scoring/guards and refs harsher on defenses is the correct answer

    Dont let this distract you to the fact that team USA placed 7th on FIBA 2019. Sure offense is far better but defense in NBA is just trash and downgraded because of rules. Just add some perimeter hand checking then we'll see if shooters and scorers today will still be that good. Don't forget 7th place. There's no excuse to that.
