With no hand check rule in place it was so much easier to play defense. The only thing a defender had to do back then was put their hands on the offensive player and push them away. 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.
you keep bringing up the "not so great" '95 Bulls when in reality that was hardly a shell of championship team that won from 91-93...only Pippen, MJ & P-Jax were the ones only left from the championship years...their roster were a mess, imagine Pippen & Kukoc playing for the same position and no one fills the void that Horace Grant left

1995 Magic were definitely a more solid team compared to 95 Bulls...they were younger & hungrier...MJ just recently came back from his baseball days and yet didn't have the grasp of his legendary skills he once displayed

'90's defense a joke compared to today? are you kidding right?
