Re: the present day baller will just keep getting better than the previous.
The league is not a new league. This is not the 50s and early 60s. After a while the league only gets better or worst from era to era depending on its stars and expansion. New stars are not born with the skills of a Jordan, they have to develop their games. Can't just simply copy them, and their deep understanding of the game.
The rule changes also allows for more running, and chances to showcase athleticism.
