Resolved Question: Are Kobe and LeBron
Because in MJs era hand checking was allowed, hence makes it easier to defend... but Kobe and LeBron have to guard a player without hand checking but are still good defenders.
BQ: Which era in the NBA history was the hardest for defenders? If they didn't call fouls on defenders back then, doesn't than mean it was easier to guard players? Not just Jordan but any player can hit you and you don't get fouls...? I don't give TDs BTW. I know they will call a foul at some point, but it's still easier for guards... because there is no star treatment and you can just hustle harder. BTW, I think MJ drew fouls as much as Durant, Kobe and LeBron do (on the offensive side)... just sayin KING, I have always said Jordan is BY FAR the best scorer in the history. The only other candidate is Chamberlain but I still think Jordan is better. But On other areas, I don't think MJ is the best. He is great but his scoring is what I think is best.
