Is This the best season since the 1990's?

Postby ShowTime_IR on Mon Aug 20, 2012 4:49 pm

What was so special about the 90's was that every team had a franchise player.
There was such a big amount of superstars and stars. the amount of talent was amazing.

and now, you have the aging best of all Kobe bryant. Lebron James now with a championship is a hall of famer for sure. Dwight Howard, Andrew Bynum, Roy Hibbert. great centers.
Kevin Durant and Russel Westrbrook are so amazing in this age.
Derrick Rose if gonna be back to his normal form and Rojon Rondo are 2 of the most special PG ive seen in a while. add to them Chris Paul and Deron Williams.
and the list continues on and on.
and so many good teams are being built right now.
we have the Lakers the Thunders the Heat the Spurs the Clippers. 5 teams that contend for the title.
the 76ers, Nets, Pacers, Knicks, Grizzlies. 4 teams that gonna do alot of damage, field with stars.
showtime teams with young talent that gonna be making some noise in the league like Clevlend, Nuggets, Minnesota, Wizards, New Orleans, Golden State, Bucks.
and the best of all. after 10 seasons the NBA will probably gonna get what they wanted. a showdown for the books. Kobe VS Lebron in the finals, for one of the best series ever.

im so excited!!!

It could be depending on how it ends.

The best seasons since the 1990s were 2000, 2001, 2002, 2009, 2010.

yeah if there were more than 3 contending teams, like lets say there were at least 6 teams who had legitimate title chances, then I would agree. but any team that isn't LA, OKC, or MIA has no chance at winning the title whatsoever

I'm gonna take my Laker hat off and put on my "NBA Entertainment" hat on here. I think this is as good as it's been since the early 90s. The mid 90s saw a decline, and the early & mid 2000s were crappy outside of LA. While we enjoyed the Laker super teams in the early 2000s, I think the league-wide talent was terrible around that time. The drafts were terrible too.

1990s? You mean the "expansion era" where the watered-down NBA completely sucked?

Yep, Toronto and Vancouver were hopeless, Miami was struggling, the Clippers were.....the Clippers. Timberwolves were terrible, Dallas was a bottomfeeder. Sacramento was nada.

Yep, the early 90's were pretty watered down. The Bulls were great, the Knicks and the Cavs were competitive, the Trailblazers were good. Then lots of bad teams, and some hopeless teams.

I think because of the Dream Team 92, people think that the 90's were stacked. But that team was a confluence of superstars from the 80's, in the twilight of their careers, and superstars from the 90's, who were just coming into their own. Bird was done, Magic was at the end of competitive play, and guys like Jordan, Pippen, Malone, Drexler, and Barkley were entering their primes.

^ I disagree. The early-to-mid 90s were great. True, Magic and Bird were done, but Isiah was still fairly good until '93. Hakeem, Ewing, D. Robinson, Rodman, Stockton, Kevin Johnson, T. Hardaway, Mullin, Richmond, Kemp and Payton (I'm forgetting a lot more) were in their primes as well. A lot of young guys fresh from the draft were able to be impact players as well.

By the time the league expanded in '95, that was things start of the decline. The talent was spread thin. On top of that, the next generation of "greats" for one reason or another didn't pan out. Guys like P. Hardaway and Grant Hill were tragically injured, while other guys like Webber, Larry Johnson and Mourning just turned out to be "very good" and not great. MJ destroying the league didn't help either.
