Steph has Klay to do all the dirty work on the defensive side of the floor by guarding the top 1s and 2s .Reggie had to go thru multiple swing men back in the 90s , guarding the other teams best swing men wasting energy AND carrying the load on the offense side .Steph only has the offense side to worry about .

Gosh Klay must be good, doing all the dirty work for Steph, and still having time to shoot 14 three pointers, or was it Steph’s turn to do the dirty work.

Klay is obviously the superior defender of the two, but Golden State plays rotational defense, spreading out the assignments fairly evenly. Steph lacks length and speed on defense, but it's not for lack of effort.

If you watched the Finals last year you would have noticed how many times Steph got stuck one on one against Lebron. Pure mismatch sure, but silly to say he only has to worry about offense.

One of the reasons why that team is so good, is because everybody is accountable on both ends of the floor.

....and Steph, mostly creates his own shots. He doesn't just stand out by the 3 point line waiting for somebody to pass him the ball like many 3 point specialists.

Steph is also a PG, he has much different responsibilities then Reggie Miller or Klay Thompson.

No one saying its lack of effort , he plays the passing lanes and relies on his help side more anyone else . Durant , klay , dray , dre , Shaun all try to lock down their respective guys .

To me it always looks like a pick up game and guys just out there running around. I would rather watch cows chew their cud.

NBA isn't basketball. It's not fun to watch. Bring on college ball.
It's not that it's merely a forgotten practice, it's been brutalized by rules and enforcement changes. Athletes haven't evolved in the 30 years since Jordan's heyday so why are they shooting so much better. Well there's no hand-checking and even the remotest amount of physicality results in a foul call. Put some of these players into the 80's and their numbers would become more pedestrian, likely in line with the greats of that era, not outstripping them by miles.
