    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.

    A good defender does NOT play reactionary defense. Also, the NBA needs to curb this scoring frenzy. The viewership graph is almost inversely proportionate to that 130 plus scoring graph at the end..

    This is a complex video analysis! It shows the light for those blind. Positionless basketball is the new trend, no task is more important than "score" also stop denying that Curry revolutionize the game and is the most skilled PG of all time.

    Man I audibly laughed at that chart of 130+ point games at the end.

  • LoneNation

    there’s another side to this. If tony Parker shot from threes as much as other players today, he would have a lower 3PT%. It’s as simple as that. The quicker gameplay would result in lower FG%.

    Lol NBA defense is nowadays is so shit. Not even being a boomer I'm genuinely speaking from a fans POV literally no-one in the NBA can play "good defense anymore. If they consider Draymond Green to be the best defender, PFFTT defense isn't even defense compared to 1 decade ago

  • Jah Coin

    No lie, they gotta add back Hand checking.

  • Turtle Island LAC

    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.


    You gotta give some credit to Steve Kerr cud he basically let curry 🍛 do his thing before that mark jackson didn’t let curry rlly shot 3 as much


    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???

  • Chun-Bonn Tang
    Chun-Bonn Tang

    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...

    Do a "follow up" video regarding this same subject but from a coaching POV. Coach's have had to adapt to this new playstyle. I wonder which ones embraced it and which ones fought against it.

    Raja is absolutely right. The league has valued volume scoring in the rules. That’s why so many players hate Pat Beverly. He’s one of the only guys that has figured out how to stay defensively effective in today’s rule book.

  • Constable Dodo

    Owners had to force the league to throw more fouls in order to protect thier investments. The refs are just doing what they're told, ultimately its the owners that make the rules.

    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?

  • Shawn Galloway
    Shawn Galloway

    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.

  • B Y

    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.

  • Fica Meris

    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.

    • Diego Velazquez
      Diego Velazquez

      Volume isn’t the same thing as skill. There are guys now like Brook Lopez and al Horford who never took more than 0.5 3’s a game in their first 6 seasons that are now taking 5 3’s a game. Players now have more freedom and are encouraged to take more 3’s because of analytics

  • Jeramithehuman

    MJ averages 50 today

  • Stephen Hagen
    Stephen Hagen

    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.

  • Ozzyfrog78

    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

      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.
