This is an old debate among NBA fans. I'm in the crowd that says that the glory days of the NBA were in the 80's and maybe the 60's, and just because the NBA recruits bigger, more athletic players, it's not necessarily better. I think the focus on size comes at the expense of fundemental skill. But I can definitely see the argument from the other side as well. I'm curious as to how you guys weigh in on this old question.

The 80s were the best because it was a lot more competitive. Heck, even the Mavs were one game away from the finals. In the Celtic-60s, it looked fun because even though they won most of the championships, they had a lot of close exciting games.

I liked the style of play from the 80's the best. The athelete's are better now, but not the style of play except for the Mavs. i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif
