    Some good points, but some points cant be backed up. * Pace and scoring is way higher now? It was even higher in the 70s and 80s. * More 1-on-1 now? Assists per game are higher now then 10 years ago. * Can't touch someone or it is a foul now? FTs per game are lower now then ever. www.basketball-reference.com/leagues/NBA_stats_per_game.html No defensive effort? That is anecdotal. Give credit, where credit is due. It was touched on in the video, but coaches/players/management has figured out efficient scoring, and players have developed into elite shooters with amazing moves to get their shot.

    In today's NBA there are no defenses. It is impossible to make a defense, because all laws are against the defense. For every act of defense, an offense against the defender is immediately whistled. Almost every penetration towards the basket is either a basket or an offense against the defender. Everything is one big show. All the records are ridiculous. It's not basketball anymore, it's just another basket shooting competition. Anyone who says that today the defense is better than ever - is a liar with an interest who tries to deny what the eyes have seen for many years. pathetic.

    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 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 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.

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.

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.
