    true....buttttt its not 100% true. all the championship teams from the 80s and 90s for example all had multiple all star players getting it done.

    idk.....for me its just the decline in talent. when I was a kid, every team had a hall of famer.....now there's only a handful of players that would even be considered a stud. not sure where all the ballers went, but, they arent chasing basketball anymore I guess?

      If you follow the NBA now, there isnt as many big name guys anymore because the entire overall talent pool is so much greater. Theres so many guys that dont get talked about as much as they should that wouldve crushed it in the 80s. Plus everyones is so much bigger and stronger now its unreal, for example Dwayne Wade who plays shooting gaurd plays at nearly the same weight as Patrick Ewing who was considered big and menacing in his time.

        not entirely sure I agree with that, but....you make a compelling argument, I must say. Is there really any way to prove that though? Youre going off just the size of the guys? idk...seems dodgy at best

          The NBA back then didnt have any of the awesome European or South American guys that are around now either, and back then there were some stars but they were all on a couple of teams so the same 4 or 5 dominated forever. If you look at the western conference right now its unreal how many good teams there are and then you have 4 or 5 solid teams in the east.

              "some stars"?!?!
              24 players in the 90s (some of whom even played in the 80s as well) were Hall of Famers....
              24!!!!!!! that's with me excluding guys who only played a couple years in the 90s like Bird for example.

              edit - I also didnt include guys like Shaq....or guys who WILL be in from the mid/late 90s like Iverson, Ray Allen, Dirk, Nash, Kobe, etc....

                        Like I said though there were stars but the overall level of depth was no where near the same level, also outside of the 5 or 6 with a shot of winning everyone sucked. You could probably name 24 HOFers from the 2000s as well

                          or start coughing really loud and make believe you are talking to someone on your cell and whisper : " I have all the ebola symptoms, I am soo scared" so they can hear you. They will be scared ****less and leave.

                            theres a wall in between so I cant throw anything at her and I cant focus especially when she makes these weird *** sounds when laughing so I say why not waste time properly rather than hear her talk about whatever
