Ax you ever read IT's letter on the players tribune? This shit got me even more hype for tonight and I think a piece like that would help in convincing KD to come here
Steph didn't ruin the NBA, the NBA did. They made the game less defensive with by implementing unnecessary rules. They're too quick to penalize players for "flagrant fouls" when 9 time out of 10 it shouldn't be considered flagrant. They got niggas scared to even defend themselves in a fight cuz they worried about getting suspended and receiving heavy fines up the ass.
IMO, all these things combined has resulted in a much less aggressive, and even somewhat less competitive attitudes by players overall. When we were kids watching the NBA, niggas on opposing teams hated each other. In today's NBA, most players don't even really show a competitive dislike for their opponents. Some dudes even act like losing ain't that big of a deal.
The NBA is not even ruined to begin with.
In comparison to the defensive/competitiveness 10 to 15 years ago to now it is.
