  • So how come the offensive rating has only gone up by 4 in the last 15 years yet pace has taken more than a 10% increase in that time. Given that analytics has teams taking more threes I believe that can alot for the increase in offensive rating so therefore the increase in scoring must be due to the increase in pace of play right???

  • Great video, super in depth. I do think the foul calling/reffing plays a much larger role in this evolution of the game and scoring. It would be good to see the average Free throw attempts from players in previous era to now and how that factors into the scoring increase.

  • ! Athletics right now are far more superior than yesterday's, no knocks on anyone but so too will tomorrow's be on today! The range the moves the ability to step behind the three point line, 7 footers aren't limited to the paint areas anymore! When the 5 guys out on the floors can shoot from just about anywhere, what options don't you have? Bigger badder faster basket-ballers! Any ball you put in the basket is worth thousands of dollars, try putting a defense on that! The game has evolved is the bottom line!

  • Michael Jordan was the player that changed everything. The guard position wasn’t cool until he stepped on the scene. And the players who grew watching him had a more guard dominant and skill heavy playing style. That was the domino effect that make the players so skilled today. I would probably say that the reason why players average more today is because of a faster paced offense and more threes, It’s a different game today.

European ball is much more fun to watch, and although the best players are still in the NBA some of the best teams in the euroleague could defiantly beat multipole NBA teams.

  • What if you dont count the absolute scoring of a player, but the percentage of a player scoring against the total of a team. So 25 points in a 90 point game would give the player a 27,7%. And 25 points in a 130 point game would give you 20%. That would tell you more about the scoring ability of a player!

  • This is a pretty long video to just discuss three points. 1. The Three-Point Revolution and the death of the inefficient mid-range shot. 2. Flopping and foul-hunting. 3. The NBA shortening the second-possession shot-clock to 14 seconds instead of 24. It really is that simple. Teams are running more and scoring more.

  • I agree with you about the overall lack of defensive effort but there is a reason for that. The current rules prohibit the players from doing the things that they were allowed to do defensively in the past. One prime example is not being able to hand check. Having that circle under the basket really just gives the defense a reason not to try and contest it when a player drives to the basket. There was also no such thing as a flagrant foul in the 90’s. Back then fouls that were considered just normal would get you suspended for 10 games now.

Because for like almost 200 days NBA players play games like every other day so they save there energy. I feel that’s really overlooked. You can call it smart or scary but it makes the play offs more entertaining.

  • 6:44 this kinda reminds me of how in Overwatch League, an esport, initially the typical strategy was 2 Tanks, 2 Damage, 2 Healers. But then an amateur level team came around called Goats, and they decided to run 3 Tanks and 3 Healers, and it worked and they won a lot using that strategy. Suddenly teams in the Overwatch League started using that strategy too, which had since became known as the Goats Meta. Unfortunately unlike the NBA’s offensive explosion, Goats Meta SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCKED to watch because the battles within the game grinded down to a crawl because the strategy was built around sustainability and drawing out fights.

  • First thing first 3 pt shot is an very important element for team to survive in this generation of basketball. All teams that won championship in refent years are good 3pt shooting team. Dallas heat, cavs , spurs, gsw.raptors. 2nd. pacing of the game. In the past people used to search for basket/shots as close as to thr rim as possible. (Back then zone defense was illegal to made more 1on1 star players, shorten 3pt line to allow more scoring)- Now if its an open shot for most team and most situation you would take an open 3 pt shot over contested lay up. In short. The past had a much slower offensive game and now we have higher pace offensive game. Another thing. To counter and eliminate zoning. Usa and euro basketball created higher quantity of shooters and quality of shooters to also help scorers to space the floor or knock the shots when pass out to them. Back then most scorers doesnt even focus on developing a really strong 3pt game. Something like demar derozen is experience, they simply dont feel the needs to which is hugely mistaken. Fyi jordan only shot 28.8% for 3pt if you take out those season nba shorten the 3pt line. So all in all, the past players wont be able to thrive in terms of efficiency in olaying in todays league because they are not equip and surrounding with the right players or offensive mindset. Phil jackson triangle offense has been outdated in this generation. He tried many times to bring it back but it simplic doesmt work.
