Until someone figures out how to evolve defense to counteract all this offensive power. Most defenses still only have particular roles or putting particular guys against certain guys. Offense has no position but defense still does. Until it becomes natural for big men to switch onto point guards on the perimeter and for 6'3-6'4 guards to protect the paint. What would you expect defenses to do? There's new moves coming out on the regular and its ridiculous. Entirely new offensive schemes are built every year to accommodate a teams top players style of play. The roles in Denver's system aren't the Roles in LAL's system and they aren't the same as Boston's system or San Antonio's system. Meanwhile, most defenses still play with the same general philosophy, with Utah being the only team really suited to playing that basic philosophy well. No free layups, no wide open 3s. It's rare for teams to build their defensive philosophy around the guys they have, and its why most defenses don't even come close to attempting to stop teams from scoring.

6:10 Dude I could've told yall that Steph Curry was the reason for the offensive explosion. After the 2nd championship teams became privy to his style of play (shoot em up 3s). They began studying how to increase the percentage to not only make those shots but considered the odds of a 3 first offensive winning games. Watching the NBA now and you can see that the game has totally changed from 10 years ago.

That is such a dumb comparison. If you think Tony Parker of all people would average 25 ur dead ass wrong. Comparing guards of that era and saying that tony Parker would average as many points as the fourth highest scoring guard tells me that this man should never talk analytics. There is so much to compare than just simply the positions of guards. For example, in the era of tony, big man and bigger forwards were considered to be the best scoring options. The reason being there was much more talented big men than there were guards. Now it’s the complete opposite. The talent level of guards is miles higher than the big man position. If you seriously think the Parker’s talent is near the level of Westbrook’s, young’s or walker, then ur simply wrong. How do I know this? Well, if he did he would have revolutionized the game earlier than curry. The fact that curry is the first person for a three point specialist to be a primary option in a championship caliber team already speaks volumes. This guy needs to know how to properly compare between two controls.

No one plays defense in todays game at all...the few teams that do....ESPN and all the media is bashing them for it....they have a commis in Adam Silver who has did everything he can think of to make it almost impossible to play defense by making the game a total finesse game instead of a physical game......its a league today like Pro Wrestling...it all looks fake...and the constant flopping is pathetic....its a joke.....the marque player in the league Lebron also has spent his career being the biggest cry baby and biggest flopper in league history and Adam Silver has embraced the flop and he has embraced everything that punishes players who play defense at all. The game sucks today...its not a sport like it was when I was younger......its an embarrassment to the players of the 1950's through the 1990's....and you kids will never known because you wasnt born when things were real and not rigged.......what a bunch of idiots in todays game......they also make far more money like I mean its crazy and yet they cry and talk about living in poverty like slaves.....they are all a joke....nothing about todays game is an improvement.....get an education on the history of the sport and why it became popular to begin with....all your doing is supporting a joke in Adam Silver who destroyed the league with his rule changes and made it a laughing stock that it is.....your just a kid by your voice who doesnt know.....but you can learn and then you will know why the ratings are down...its not just politics that dont belong in sports being there it is because the league sucks today compared to anytime ever in the past

Jordan and Kobe would be averaging 45+. Shoot, Kobe averaged 35 PPG in a time when defense was crazy good and not many 3s were taken. Thank you for this video. I'm only in my 20s but I've been watching the NBA since 1998 or so. I preferred the style from back then. The numbers that players put up these days just aren't as impressive as they look on paper because defense is virtually non-existent. It kind of sucks seeing more 3s than 2s chucked up.

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???
acortez25 8 hours ago
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.
Aw hell yea brother
You have a good point. The amount of Isos and post ups you used to see from no name players in the 90s was astounding. Nowadays you don't do that unless you're Kawhi, Durant, Embiid or Jokic

The pace is insane, most teams shoot under 7 seconds each possession and the NBA has completely changed the rules in the past 20 years. It’s an offensive game now, made almost impossible to play defense

And the defensive effort is horrible, even if the skill level has gone up the mental IQ has definitely dropped severely if you watch a Game you’ll see the same pick and roll be successful three times in a row with no defensive change

Even as a kid, I wondered why teams didn't play the way they do today. Also, I felt like every player should take atleast one 3-pointer, especially if they were left wide open, because there would be so many possessions to go around.

! 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!

“Offence is far ahead of defence” So basically players focus on offence more than defence. This translates into defence is weaker now than the 80s/90s/ Early 2000s

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.

The NBA today is unwatchable, I don't remember the last time I saw 4 offensive possessions in a row without stopping the game, the game game stopped every 10 seconds because everything is a foul. 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!
redskullz124 20 hours ago
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.
