His vert in the ASG was the last indicator for me, it was a few inches lower than it is.

 

Maybe he's tired. And he lags on the court in real game situations.

You know that shaky leg feeling you get after a good leg workout, yPu5J7f.gifwell Drummy has it shortly after half-time. Out of shape or In shape, I say out.

 

He's still my mans though..

actually i'm tripping. he tore the cartilage in his left knee but after that he was hella slow and wore a knee brace. i wanna say it took him a couple years before he was somewhat back athletically. his floaters turned into his mid-range jumpers pimp.gif

It's such a misconception that defenses were better, it was easier to score in the 90's.

I mean I know the rules are different but it's not like dudes never beat their man off the dribble and get all the way to rack anymore. Zone defense wasn't gonna slow down mj. He played against zone defense in dc. Even in that clip there's a second defender waiting for him at the rack.

What I will say is that the lack of hand checking is greatly exaggerated. Defenders still hand check and lean on their man all the damn time.

But MJ wouldn't continuously attack the basket like many of you are suggesting. He did a lot of his work in the perimeter and post.

Besides, he'd go to the line way more in today's game.

Why wouldn't he? Doesn't seem like lebron has any trouble getting to the rack and his first step isn't close to mike's. Also what's gonna stop him from posting up and hitting faders all day like kobe did in the zone era? The rules are different but I really don't think it's drastic enough to where you can say a guy like mj wouldn't be effective when other players are still out here cooking.

I was agreeing with you. MJ was stronger than Kobe too, and did better work under the free throw line. But what really set him apart from everyone else was when he learned how to continuously be effective with his back to the basket and did rely so much on his explosiveness.

I didn't mention anything about defense differences, just a rule difference.

go watch how chris pual defended steph curry in the playoffs during that GSW clippers series and tell me again if that's called a foul in the playoffs.
I can see that. I just hate how some NBA refs call some ticky tack fouls nowadays and do it at random spurts of the game.

I don't disagree with your defense thing, because defensive schemes are more complex now, I just wanted to take a shot at current reffing, which is atrocious sick.gif

And MJ would have split any and every defender on the helpside of the zone. 

 

Dudes don't want to get up on Curry because fear of embarrassment,  Imagine MJ as  Current Curry x3 in today's current defensive schemes

Buyout.

 

CBS Sports says Joe wants an extension though. :lol We'll see.

 

Steve Novak is also expected to get bought out. Look for him to join the Cavs.

I seen people in this thread say things like Jordan and Lebron are basically the same player or Kobe was a better scorer than Jordan.

As beautiful as that fade away looks, I remember Jordan doing some pretty creative stuff driving to the basket. His finesse game was def better than the early power game.

I remember as a kid, watching him play the Knicks. He would either blow past his defender, or catch the ball in the perimeter and do work in the post. He was practically unguardable post 1995.

What I will say is that the lack of hand checking is greatly exaggerated. Defenders still hand check and lean on their man all the damn time.

1. I'm not saying Jordan would be garbage, I'm simply saying it was harder to score. It's not an opinion its a fact, def ratings were like a full point higher in the 90's.


2. Jordan had a sub .500 TS% in DC so he wasn't exactly an efficient scorer.


3. I didn't say that player never beat their man to the, I''m just saying its tougher than it was in the 90's, defenses pre rotate, look at Lebron vs GSW, they didn't have to out right double like you would in the 90's, they just shade guys to his side of the court and wall off the paint.
