  • LOL the higher scoring was by design. In 2018 Adam Silver met with owners, officials and players to increase scoring by further reducing and limiting physicality. You don't need a 20-minute video to tell you that. These are just inflated numbers that are engineered to entertain. Example: Donovan Mitchell of the league leading Jazz just put up two 50 pt games in the 2020 playoffs putting him in the company of Jordan and Chamberlain. Mitchell seems like he's getting better right? Wrong. Mitchell could only manage to lead Team USA to SEVENTH place in the 2019 World Cup, where they play more physical like the 90s. If Mitchell was such a great player he would not have led the WORST showing in international play in USA basketball history.

  • The amount of disrespect to larry bird here is disgusting. Back then, only the best of the best can have an average score of 25-30 pts. You have to endure what basically todays flagrant fouls with almost every possession. Todays glass cannons simply won’t survive the basketball of yesteryears.

  • Because at todays basketball, we see that sometimes, to best defend a guy is to not raise your hand at all in fear of defensive foul. At the whole history of this sports, when except now that we see a guy not raising a hand to defend in fear of foul???

  • The positionless game is getting on my nerves for years. Back then it was about outplay the opponent and score close to the basket as much as possible. Now every moron is shooting from the outside no matter they are real shooters or not. And sadly the NBA influences the casual players too. When i played against some younger players on the court, many chugged so many 3s and most were not going in anyway...

  • Can I add one thing only, I agree with everything: We have this offense beasts all around. Everyone has crazy skills on offense. Isn't one thing to that, that these guys are per se bad at defense? It's not like you change the whole defense/offense on court like in Football. What I'm trying to say is: When they're all very very good at offense, isn't the counterpart that they are not as good in defense? Which than spins the circle even faster?

  • I'm just gonna say what no one else seems to notice: times have changed and attitudes are different now. NBA used to be storylines, rivalries, overcoming obstacles, good guys verses bad guys, a battle of different styles, etc. Now it is watch the 'star' score a bunch of points. Society has changed from substance to flash, from meaning to vanity. It's not basketball anymore. It's individual accolades and star worship. These are the days of me me me, where social media and narcissism (stats, points) replaces depth and meaning (teamwork, plays, iq)

  • The lack of D and bull shit calls the refs are making and flopping is why people score more. Defence has gone backwards. The NBA has gotten worse and less entertaining. The warriors ruined the game by allowing Klay and curry shoot so many 3s.

  • The last graph could easily be misleading. What it might be commenting on more is about garbage time, and what was mentioned in the video, that "getting a bucket gets you paid". I don't think that's exactly the case. It might also be the fact that when a team has a hot night shooting, the upside is very high. This might also not be the case, because even bigger lows would have to also be prevalent when the team shoots cold (unless easy layups abound late in those blowouts). Old style inside bashing for points in the 4th wasn't conducive to running up scores. They ran down the clock and took outside shots. I do agree scoring is up and with the rest of the video (I love what the NBA has become), but to look at the # of +130 games as conclusive evidence for anything isn't super convincing to me.

  • Players are more skilled now more than ever. By players i mean ALL players as a group. If you leave your guy he is going to punish you. That wasn't the case before. Before you knew who is (most likely) going to punish you. Now it's everyone. If you don't follow your, guy and leave him open, he is getting 3p, no matter how bad shooter you think he is. Guys having problem form free throws getting 3p? Dwight, Drumond... Boban... It has never been so hard to play defense.

  • This video just reinforces WHAT I've been saying. Without Steve Kerr, you don't get Steph Curry with the freedom to do what he does. Steve Kerr changed the game, because any other coach would have put Steph (and the rest of the team) in a role. Also, don't forget, the area the defense has to guard tight is now twice as big.

  • 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.

  • Tenendo conto delle percentuali di successo, della costante crescita quantitativa e dell'ambito della nostra attivita, diventa necessario includere nel piano di produzione una serie di attivita straordinarie, tenendo conto di una serie di approcci standard. Naturalmente, un livello profondo di immersione richiede un'analisi dell'analisi dei modelli di comportamento esistenti. E anche i sostenitori del totalitarismo nella scienza, iniziato esclusivamente sinteticamente, sono stati resi pubblici. Non va dimenticato, tuttavia, che il costante sostegno alle nostre attivita contribuisce alla qualita di prospettive favorevoli. Para o mundo moderno, diluido em uma boa dose de empatia, o pensamento racional garante a relevancia do modelo de desenvolvimento. Assim como a metodologia de desenvolvimento moderna nao nos da escolha a nao ser definir o agrupamento de esforcos! E os paises em desenvolvimento ativo do terceiro mundo sao apenas um metodo de participacao politica e estao bloqueados dentro da estrutura de suas proprias restricoes racionais. De repente, elementos do processo politico serao identificados como candidatos ao papel de fatores-chave.

    • The production may stay the same but I think their efficiency would go up. Take Allen Iverson for example. He averaged 31.4 PPG on a terribly inefficient 39.8%. Basically 27.8 shots per game. More than anyone today. To be fair to Iverson, his early 2000s Sixers team were pretty garbage offensively so he had to night in and night out chuck like crazy just to keeps his teams somewhat competitive. So if he played today (assuming a good team with good scorers) he probably wouldn’t have to chuck so much. As Jxmyhighroller pointed out. The average player today is far better offensively than 10-20 years ago.

  • The real reason is the defensive 3 second violation, the inability to play as physical defense, and hard fouls leading to ejections instead of a basic foul call. Not to mention the fact that players are selected more for their offensive abilities rather than defensive abilities leading to more scoring and less defense.

  • this crazy people didn't listen to the guy saying that the offense and the players are far far and away more offensively talented and gifted than 10-20 years ago. so why we're seeing the offensive explosion. Yeah we can say that The defense is not as physical but at the same time even if the defense is physical, the players are still more offensively gifted and talented so you cannot put these players back in the '90s because they're still far and away more offensively talented. So they would do what they're doing now back then against the less athletic and less talented players.

    • @6x NCAA National Champ 🌝There isn’t an nba rule that says you can only play 6’9 250 Lebron a certain way and you have to play 6’2 185 Tony Parker differently lol. Tony Parker played in that exact same 2007 Finals against the exact same ruleset . He averaged 24 and 5 on 56%. Lebron averaged 22 on 35%. The Spurs just dared him to shoot all game and got the expected results. 🙄

    • @Diego Velazquez well is you ever listen to pop and Bowen and TD. Bowen didn't do it but himself. He was the primary defender but when they got in half court settings it was a team help defense. Like Bowen said you don't shut Bron down by yourself. It takes bodies it's a team effort lol. Again you really don't know basketball. This isn't the 90s where you had to play 1 on 1 and there was no zone. If you were caught out of position then you got technical free throws. Pop defense was built in zones and team help. Which he clearly talks about lol 🤦🏾‍♂️

    • @6x NCAA National Champ Lebron isn’t being defended by other 6’9 250 players with 40 inch verticals. He’s getting outplayed by players smaller than him lol. Jason Terry, Tony Parker, Dirk, Kd, Iggy. None of those guys are 250 and none of them had a 40 inch . Nice try though lol

  • Nice video but cmon man, not even mentioning Spoelstra and the big 3 Heat? I get they didn’t go full positionless but they tried it; putting Bosh at the 5 with lock down wing defenders that can shoot threes and having Bosh step further and further away from the rim. I even think Spo coined the term “positionless” in the first place. 😂

Just like football the rules were changed to make the television experience better. Hockey has a problem the other way in this regard, they want more goals but refuse to change rules.
