Default Why are old players constantly complaining about how bad the NBA is?

The NBA is very popular a lot of the games are exciting whats the problem. They act like teams are shooting 29% from the field and games are hard to watch.

some people that are complaining are right, like the guys that say the big mans are crap in the last 5-10 years or that a center should stay in the middle and have post moves not go to the 3p line.

others like domishitque willkins are just bitter and frustrated that they are irelevant at this point and say stupid shit.


others like tom heinsohn are just senile waiting for death at the door from minute to minute.

Because the modern NBA is full of soft, media-created "stars" that are actually bitches.

See: Lebron James and Kevin Durant.

Because they resent that they had to play on tape delay. People back then saw the level of play and weren't interested

The minute they saw Bird and Magic they decided to watch the NBA

'cause everyone has his/her own definition of what a strong and weak era is. Other than 50s and 70s being consensus weak eras, the 60s, 80s, 90s and 00s are hard to rank. People have various opinions, and we will never get a conclusion.

Because the times have changed. How many old people appreciate the art of hip hop? How many old people like the new smartphones & gadgets?

It's just a different era of basketball which the older legends never had a chance to experience, they're just bitter and are trying to prop their own era up. That's why you see them older guys put Oscar, Baylor, West in the top 10 all-time lists.
