    ....the reason you don't see hardly any plays called or run in today's NBA is clearly a result of basketball intelligence or brains. Today's NBA players have about as much brains as a turnip!
    They rely on athletic ability and have throw fundamentals out the window! Best quote to describe your typical NBA player of today's era was the coach for the Bull's. It went something like this: "We called a time out to set up a play for Curry. But I guess the 10,000 times we ran it in practice...weren't enough!"
    why are today's players dumber than back in the good ol days tho bro?

    When you said "something I don't see that often anymore," I thought you meant a guy who could actually make 50% of his shots. It's amazing guards nowadays are considered good shooting guards or point guards if they make 40% of their shots, especially since defenses are softer.

    High 30's, low 40's is great from behind the arc. But there's no reason guards should be shooting 40% on their 2-PT FG's.

    Not sure what your argument is. Overall shooting percentage for Stockton was 51.5% and he hit 38.4% of his 3's. I don't think Stockton was much different than the guards today in the sense he took outside shots, but certainly had his share of driving layups. His efficiency was >>>>>>> most guards today.

    The Jazz consistently led the league/were one of the top teams in terms of Team FG% until the 2003-04 season. Jazz had a resurgence in 2006, but then slipped back the past couple of seasons, despite being a team that hasn't taken many 3's. To me, that says the biggest problem for the Jazz, offensively, is that the players just can't make shots. Right now the Jazz rank 11th in the league. We're not as athletic as many other teams and have virtually no players that can create scoring opportunitiesby themselves (notwithstanding the rise-up 3 from Mo). The offense MUST become more effective and guys have to start hitting their open looks. It's difficult to believe that, despite us thinking we have a huge advantage inside with our bigs, only Kanter has a FG% > 50%. That's sad for inside players. And our guards aren't that great either: Hayward and Foye at 42%, Mo at a respectable, but not great, 44% and our backup PG's in the 30's.

    guards are flopping nowaydas.
    trying to draw a foul instead of trying to score the basket.
    that might take a few percentage point of the top

    bro ur not comparing eras tho. ur comparing stockton, who is a HOF. to other average guys.
    of course Stock is gonna look better. He's a HOFer. There are HOF guards today too who have good shooting %s.

    i think thats because of the rule changes. overall i think the rule changes have made the game better overall.
    but true flopping and trying to fool refs into calling something is a bad side effect.
    i think that is exactly why they are fining for flopping now. i think eventually the flopping rules will get stricter.
