"I don't care what they say. If you look at old films, guys only went right. They turned and kept it in their right hand. Look at the things LeBron (James) can do, Tim (Duncan) can do, Tony (Parker) can do, Manu (Ginobili) can do. Little (Daniel) Gibson over there. There's no way you can compare those guys. We watched what they did and expanded on that."
There is alot of truth to what he says, though he overstates the matter. In every field in which you can measure athletic performance objectively, like track and field or weights, performance has vastly improved from then. Nobody seems to care about this, some delluded fans even think guys from the 50's like Pettit were better than TD. It's pretty amusing.
