more talent in general in the sport of basketball now, esp with more international players, ethnic players etc, much, much more talented imo, big man like russell wouldnt just come in and dominate and scare the crap outta all the other bigs, same with wilt.

Respect to guys like Red who trailblazed and did alot of the heavy lifting. Coaches got more respect back in the day, they werent hired and fired on a whim for the most part, players didnt make millions and have more power then them. Todays athlete is much harder to coach imo
