That's literally it.

The elite teams in the mid to late 90's didn't have much athleticism (with the exception of Chicago). They were all defensive teams who relied on hand checks(or being "physical" as people like to put it) and slow the pace of the game down to a crawl to stop the opposing teams. Those teams would get demolished in today's NBA by teams like the Heat, Thunder, and (a healthy) Bulls team.

And those 1997 Rockets did dissapoint, but Clyde Drexler was past it at that point in his career and Barkley/Hakeem weren't exactly in their prime in 1997. In 1995 Jordan was 31 and Pippen was 29. Both in their prime. And no one on that team was older then 31. They were all prime. Yet, they still lost to the Magic.
wrong man. try to check where hakeem and MJ starts their career, and clyde

is only ahead of 1 year. charles is pick number 5 in 1984.

as you can see you said chicago lost to a younger team like magic.... still 90's

a weaker ERA?????

after that playoffs.. in the next season.. magic is swept by chicago in

playoffs.
