Welcome to another Friday here at the NLSC and a new edition of The Friday Five! For the uninitiated, The Friday Five is a feature that I post every Friday in which I give my thoughts on a topic that’s related to basketball video games, the real NBA or another area of interest to our community, presented as either a list of five items or a Top 5 countdown.
This week, I’m getting nostalgic and playing the cranky “Things were better in my day!” card as I take a look at five ways the NBA was more enjoyable in the 90s. Now, that’s not to say that I don’t enjoy the NBA today because I absolutely do, but these are five things that I miss or feel were done better during the era I grew up watching. Since I’m aiming to compile a list that I feel most fans from that era can agree with, I’ll try to get through the Five without listing “The Chicago Bulls winning championship after championship”. No guarantees.
