I have been tossing this idea around in my head for quite some time and just dismissed it as me being crazy, until I heard WFNZ discuss the topic for their show this morning and surprisingly …. a lot of other people agreed with me!
Is the NBA, right now, the best it has ever been?
Initially, it seems almost blasphemous to think that the NBA could be better now than it was during the Jordan era. After further consideration , I (Scotty…not Evan) have come to believe that it is.
The playoffs underway right now are absolutely amazing! The play is the best I have seen in a loooooong time and I’ve come to the conclusion that professional basketball is finally beginning to recover from the doldrums of the “post Jordan” era.
I think too often we have people who fell in love with the NBA in the 80s and 90s, then stopped watching it when Jordan left, and refuse to believe that the product on the court could possibly be better. Now there are certain things that will always be better about that time period, like the aggressive physical nature of the big man and the rivalries. However, the athleticism, the finesse, the competitiveness, the defense, the offense and overall quality of the game is better now….in my opinion 😉
As someone with no dog in the fight ( the Charlotte Bobcats are my team), I’ve found myself watching on the edge of my seat during almost every game. I haven’t felt this way since the days when my Charlotte Hornets were in it!
What do you think?
Even if you don’t believe this is the NBS at its best , I think we can agree that playoffs are a lot better than just a few years ago and now is a perfect time for the Hornets to return!
