90's basketball is and will forever be the best era of basketball.

I lived the 2000s and I would agree prime players in the 90s were better. shaq didnt win not until 2000, although regarded as the most dominant. I guess the league was still recovering ever since mj retired.

Kobe and Jordan in his last Bulls season, facing one another: it feels like something out of a videogame.. but it really happened. Also, bring back the team-jerseys for the All Star game, it looks so iconic.

Yes my friend! We were living in a video game back then! Now it's pure reality. So that makes us really lucky.
@AETERNVS There is no Kobe and Jordan. It's Michael Jordan. Michael Jordan was far better, greater and superior than the inefficient rabid chucker Kobe Bryant. Kobe never shot 50% in his career. The following year after Jordan averaged 37 PPG, he averaged 35 PPG at 53.5 FG%. Kobe wasn’t on that level. Jordan averaged 30+ ppg for 7 straight years while 5 of them were above 50%. In 1985, rookie Michael Jordan averaged: 28.2 PPG 6.5 RPG 5.9 APG 51% FG Kobe’s MVP season in 2008 averaged: 28.3 PPG 6.3 RPG 5.4 APG 45% FG Jordan in his rookie year had a better season than Kobe in his MVP season! They both played 82 games Michael Jordan, not only won 10x regular season scoring titles, but he also led 10x in playoffs PPG Kobe has shot 41.5% or less in 5/7 NBA Finals Seasons shooting 50% or more Jordan - 6 Kobe - 0 Kobe has the most missed shots in NBA history 1. Kobe Bryant 14,481 Rabid Chucker Extraordinaire 2. John Havlicek 13,417

@@miltongreene1889 Why do you try to invent answers if you have no idea of what you are talking about? It just happens that there wasn't as much marketing BS and political BS in the league back then. The game was still the priority. And also players were more mature and professional. That's why guys like T.Mac, and coach Monty Williams said that the difference between Jordan and Lebron is that Jordan dominated a league of men, while Lebron has dominated a league of children. That has nothing to do with your theory.
Absolutely. They also dared to ask some tougher question.

Wow!! I can't believe they posted this.... This is my favorite NBA All-Star game of all-time! I recorded this game on VHS and rewatched it sooo many times. It was Kobe's first all-star game and MJ's last as a Chicago Bull. I can recall off the top of my head how he scored nearly every single point this night. This is when I really, really started to fall in love with the NBA as a 13 year old kid. This game sealed the deal for Kobe to be my favorite player (that is... until an electric, high-flying, half-man, half-amazing player named Vince Carter came to the league the following season).

I'm sitting here watching the NBA's elite players of the time (some of ALL time) and I'm hearing catchphrases like "lots of contact,no call on that one"--while watching these guys make legitimate plays in the interest of winning the game, not just looking good.

Listen to Mike in the beginning, Start over or retire were the only options because teaming up with other stars wasn't ever even a thought that would cross his mind. This 98 season was one of his greatest triumphs with stiff and broken Scottie a shell of himself and missing most of the season and basically being a decoy in the Finals. If he were a lesser player, he would have gone to join the Lakers like any of todays stars would do if they were in the same shoes.
