LeBron is going to be a monster defensively if the NBA allows hand checking, and the use of forearm checking.
1999 -- NBA eliminates hand-checking altogether and forearm checking anywhere but below the free throw line extended. The league also allows any form of defense on the strong side of the ball.
2001 -- Illegal defense rules are eliminated and a defensive three-second rule is instituted.
2004 -- Hand-checking is completely abolished to open up the flow of the game.
