Re: the present day baller will just keep getting better than the previous.
Not better, just different. While they've improved in certain areas, they've gotten worse in others.
The death of the midrange shot is the biggest difference i've noticed the last few years. It's been dying gradually, but most recently it seems like all teams want to do now is spread the floor and heave 3-point shots back and forth.
The NBA is beginning to resemble the college game and i don't consider that a good thing.
