Let's suppose the modern NBA's teams time-warped back to the 80s and 90s. Hand-checking was allowed, illegal defense rules reverted, and most importantly, there was much more acceptance of hard fouls. Elbows and fists could fly with abandon.
How would the league change? Who would rise, who would fall?
Centers would get BTFO, point gods would dominate, bird would torch everyone else except LeBron nnd few others. Then there's Jordan.
Pretty equal desu. People like LeBron would benefit ina tougher environment. He's crippled being unable to retaliate and at the mercy of the refs. If he could lay someone out, no one would wrap him again.

Would they be better off if they reverted back to this logo, pham?
Doesn't matter. They could turn the mascot into a hot chick and nobody would give a shit because Miami """"""""""""""""""""""""fans""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""" don't go to their games.
why no .700 club this week? did the OP for this season off himself or something?
>not "an hero"
>"Holly Holm will wait for Ronda Rousey"
>Ronda’s never lost a fight.
Jesus christ Dana let it go. Rousey herself said it'd be six months before she could even eat an apple. Let Holm fight a few others, the hype will remain if Ronda decides to come back.

>the dedication put into offseason training by this guy is unreal
What kinda cut you want?
Why are people still running with this meme? He's actually quite terrible:
>less than 30% on 3s
>only 40% overall
>still takes on average 17 attempts a night
>Wiggins scored a season-low eight points (3-15 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-5 FT) to go with seven rebounds, one steal, and one block in 31 minutes in Monday's 110-106 loss to the Clippers.
He's not even MCW tier
He's actually not terrible. Sure his shooting is still pretty bad but he's getting better attacking the basket and playing more aggressive. He's only like 21 yo. It takes time to become completely polished
>mfw my state produced the GOAT white basketball player
If all your "successful sports" state is known for is taking in talent raised in other parts of the country OR relying on nignogs to be your best produced athletes, you are a kekold on Sweden levels and should kill yourself promptly.
>mfw my Dallas Cowboys win the NFC East and there's nothing any of you can do about it
>mfw the kekboys have never beaten the Ravens and never will
>mfw Packers win the NFC North and there's nothing any of you can do about it
>His state doesn't have an NFL team
>Indiana is better than Oregon, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Delaware, Virginia, Kentucky, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming Iowa, Idaho, Nevada, Utah, Montana, Hawaii, and Alaska
When will they learn?
I did something about this on the NBA recently family.
11 of 30 NBA teams, or over a third of that league, are concentrated in just four states (CA TX NY FL). I then came up with maybe 28-29 states not having an NBA team.
But then I stepped back: there are only 30 NBA teams, and there are only 50 states. So given the size of that league, using some version of the pigeonhole principle from basic mathematics, a minimum of 20 states will be keked out of not having a basketball team (if they even care)...

The Canucks take on the Rangers in the AV Bowl
The Canucks attempt to return to their tanking ways, while NYR hopes to avoid embarrassment
This game started like, an hour ago.
I dunno what even happened to Rangers game threads. They don't exist anymore. That's sad.
LOL at Messier reminiscing about his days in Vancouver
Does anyone want to buy a striker? He's made of glass but on the rare occasion he gets to play he bangs them in.
