Maurice Cheeks was the career leader in steals for a while in the 90s. Despite this fact, he only had three games in his career with 8 or more steals. This means he must have had a lot of games with 5, 6 or 7 steals.

Damn op, maybe you should post at realgm to get a reply. This isn't much of a basketball forum.

Yes, for some reason, steals were very high in the 80s. Probably attributable to some of those fast offenses like Denver, San Antonio and L.A. And for some odd reason, steals did not seem to be that high in 1983-84.

Larry Steele was nicknamed the Man of Steal, but he played in the 70s.

OP, is it a waste of time to tell you about the play-index stuff at basketball-reference?

You can find all this info over there, just can be a pain in the ass sometimes.

Thanks, well aware of that, but the problem is that the games database only entails back to 1983 right now. I compiled the rest of this with books and math.

This is one area where guys back then wouldn't do as well today.

They wouldn't be able to be as physical and handcheck on the perimeter and they wouldn't be playing as many minutes.

They would probably go from 3+ steals a game to about 2.2+ a game.

Larry steele huh .. First time i've heard his name . Too many great guys hiding on those courts , I remember Johnny Moore . I've seen his name when looking at 82 playoffs . He looks superior version of 12 Rondo on the paper . And then watching him , wow .

It's probably about illegal D . Steals could've easier when defences open lines .
