Point is, defenses today play differently than defenses of the 1980's. They're better able to control pace, defensive rebound (since the athletic playing field is more even today due to better nutrition and training), and they are better at not fouling.
Yep. Defenses are tougher today than they were 17 years ago. Also, there's the whole zone defense thing that HendrixFan brought up, but you ignored.
And LBJ, of course, is playing against these defenses, with a slower paced game, scoring only slightly less than Jordan.
Thanks for proving our point :thumbsup:.
And, sorry, I'd take the 2007 Spurs defense over any of those of the 1980s 'juggernauts.'
Should I get off your lawn?
