Regarding defense as Russillo did at the end of the podcast, it wasn't that players back in the 80s or 90s were always being decapitated if they drove to the basket. It was that the threat existed that they could be decapitated. That is no longer part of the NBA game. Are these guys today actually willing to put their body out there and attempt to draw a charge or commit a hard foul? I mean, assuming they're not taking the day off. As for the fun they were having with how European basketball players were being described during those games, there's no discussion of the fact that the characterization of Euros being soft was absolutely true. there are always exceptions, but the fact of the matter is that European basketball was vastly different then NBA basketball was back then. There's a reason the league was not regularly bringing in Euros at the time. that is one reason the Dream Team is so revered. It inspired players in all of those other countries to up their game and become more like NBA players. This is the problem I have when these guys start getting a little political and social justice-y. They will invariably titter over how we couldn't say this or do that today like we did back then, but they will completely skip over whether those things that were said or done we're true or right. And usually they were not only the best that could be put forth given the information available, but WERE often accurate and true.
