6:15 I knew it before you said it
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.
MJ averages 50 today
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.
I guess you can say...Today’s superstars,are the BOOMERS of the nba 😏✨
Uh you can’t play defense anymore. Mystery solved

This a problem that the NBA is overlooking, its going to get to the point were people are not going to watch. Me for example i dont watch as many games as i used to, and i dont even watch the allstar game
The thundering bathroom opportunely peep because crook contrastingly scribble via a uneven street. foamy, momentous request
Because they are getting the all time lowest blocks & steals LOL
Excellent analysis! Even though offensive skill is at an all time high across the league I find the game boring. I hope defense catches up.
Id be interested to see how good these guys would be if they made them play by the rules. I'd also like to see the kind of contact that is called a foul if the defender is out of position called a charge if they are in position....
Let me give you some insight. 2024/25 Season will add a 4 Point line
0:14 I counted its 482 vs 264 balls
Just came back to the video, and Gary Trent just had 44. It’s so easy to score in today’s game
4:50 This is 100% truth. Defenses in any sport are ALWAYS reactionary and ALWAYS bound by physics. The offense knows where it's going. The defense is stuck guessing.

Can thank Le flop James for this
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.
What happened in 2019 causing such a jump? It's painful to see defenders jumping out of a dunkers for fear of finishing on a poster - who has b-ball posters these days anyway Have you looked at the point proportion per player within the tean? As in 5 starting vs. bench over the years? I assume that main players are more greedy than they were

And Kobe was called a ball hog in his era but was way ahead of his time
The quality of this video though.... wish I could subscribe twice
MJ in this era 40/10/6
That is becuase no one play DEFENSE in Nba,Playing Defense is more painful.
Um, they stopped playing D 10 years ago
This is why soccer is more popular than basketball. :)
Gilbert arenas was Bradley Beal on steroids
Just imagine like the numbers all time greats in the early 2000s and 90s players would had Absolute insane Could be a great video
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.
I barely like basketball and I can't stop watching your video

tony parker is going to shoot better in pops system and having 2 all stars on his team smh
tony parker had duncan and manu on his team. his attempts probably change but his numbers about the same.
steph sparked more 3s but teams have been going for interchangable positionless players since the bulls 2nd 3 peat. thats what made the bulls successful.
most big men could hit the 3 in the 90s it just wasnt a staple of the game plan. hell even shaq hit a few.
nash pass first pg
Tony Kukoc was the Doncic of his time. If he was given the green light and was able to continue his Euro play instead of being forced to bulk up, he would've gone on a tear in today's game.
jimmy such a goat
Rudy gobert joined the chat...
You don’t think of TP as a great scorer?! Caaaaap! Lol he wasn’t a playmaker or a 3 and d guy.
Trae Young is very good for a youngster
Steve Nash was a white point guard, you expect him to drop 30 he’s a role player
@Diego Velazquez ik
Steve Nash won two mvps......
The reason is because of Steph and Kobe.
Why not analyze the stats of a subset of players that played on both sides of rule change year?
Pretty good video
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.
Look, every year the nba players create a new dribling moves, they can shoot from the logo. At the same time u can not create a new form of defense.
Nash would be 25-15 players in today's NBA.
He’d be a top 5 player.
I love when people bring up how hard it was offensively back in the day because the defense was so physical. You know who else could be far more physical? The fucking offense. So if you both could wrestle back then and neither can do it now, it's a push so cut the shit. Adding in the terrible flopping of today's game and guys bigger than Bill fucking Russel playing 2 guard, defense is probably harder than it's ever been. The game itself isn't as playground when it comes to physicality as it used to be and I think that's a good thing, sort of. Bill Lambier should've been cleaning toilets and beating women, not winning championships. However, the league has gone way overboard with the softness. The refs are incompetent egomaniacs and the players have taken advantage of the rules and refs which makes them look soft. It's far deeper than just, oh this generation that generation. The only reason we are at this point is because of how much Michael complained and how bad the league slurped their cash cow. Now I would've done the same because MJ is the goat but let's cut out the dumb ass baseless arguments for who's best or what era is best or the hardest, it's just dumb. All you people who complain about how soft today's game is are the same ones who hate on the players who play like it's still 1980. Sorry for the fucking rant but I'm keeping it
And this isn't directed at the creator of this video. I just heard raja bell, notice the lower case letters, bring up some shit that always upsets me
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.
@Brian Scalabrine level of Karl with his skill, size and speed and ability to shoot and facilitate? You're slow. Imagine if Karl had all the attributes bron had in the 90s. He'd been the best player in the league. He already was an MVP being a basic PF with basic PF skills in the 90s lol. Now add some Magic, some MJ, some Pippen with his ability to guard multiple positions, with guard speed and quickness with a 44 inch vert. Karl would've been unfair.
@Margot C Rodman was 6'7-6'8 210-215 that was his only job. LeBron would be able to bang with Shaq the same way Rodman did. I've seen Bron bang with Tim 250, Joel 260-270, Drummond 280, Nukic 290, Giannis 250, Jokic 260, Dwight 250+ and many others. I can tell you don't watch Bron or barely watched 90 % of games that Bron is in. That's how I know the ones that know nothing about Bron. You type are the ones that watch very few games of him and make a judgement on a very small sample size lol. I can understand you not being a fan of his not wanting to watch the majority of his games. And If you do watch all his games then you're an undercover fan and you would knew the things he's capable of lol. But just say you didn't follow Bron career like that. At least I would know even more so that you have no idea what you're talking about. No LeBron would've be able to stop Shaq Rodman on average couldn't stop Shaq he was just pesky. Alot of the times they met up Rodman had someone to help him out in attempt to trap Shaq. (Phil Jacksons game plan, you should research that lol) But what you said is so idiotic to say Bron isn't physical enough but has probably the most drives and finishes after contact in the history of the game no matter who tries to stop him. But of course you're not going to have your point guard/ point forward bang with a center all game that's just stupid. That doesn't mean Bron can't. I remember Pat Riley saying Bron with his size and skill has the ability to be the best in any position be chooses of we asked him to focus on it lol. So again please know what you're talking about. Ben and Rodman are no where near the player or have anywhere close to the skill LeBron has, so why would any reasonable smart coach who knows basketball have Bron score and facilitate but have him down in the post banging with bigs all game to wear him down. That takes away from the offense. Again an amateur way of thinking. I know you didn't make it passed middle school in sports lol.
@6x NCAA National Champ Lebron would be a superstar in the 90’s of course! He just wouldn’t be as good as Jordan lol. He‘s be on the level of a Karl Malone. Still a Legend and hall of famer but we’d know who the best player is.
@6x NCAA National Champ I also once said anything about listed weights. According to the NBA’s website, Ben Wallace, Kevin Durant and Ben Simmons are all listed at 240. No one actually believes that. According to the NBA’s website, Karl Malone and Lebron weigh less than Anthony Davis and Bam Adebayo. Again no one actually believes that. Most nba listed weights are transferred over from college or random arbitrary guesses. PJ Tucker is listed at 245 while Ben Wallace is listed at 240. Again, no one with a Brain 🧠 takes those measurements seriously.
@6x NCAA National Champ You can put Dennis Roman on Shaq to frustrate and bang with him. You can put Ben Wallace on Shaq. You would NEVER put Lebron on Shaquille because he’s simply not strong or physical enough to bang with him. You wouldn’t even put Lebron on a prime Dwight. Lebron is stronger than most players at his position and that’s as far as it goes . There are a lot of nba players much more physical than him.
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. 😂
Should bring back hand checking. Give some leverage to the defensive side of the ball.
