Michael Jordan was the greatest to ever play in the NBA, that means the decade he dominated, the ‘90s, was the greatest in the history of the NBA as well. Not so fast, Jordan may be the GOAT, but that doesn’t mean that today’s NBA is playing second fiddle to any generation. LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and the magic town of Lob City are doing more than their part to make the case that the NBA is better now than it’s ever been.

We’ve got more highlights, better analysis, way more insight into players both on and off the court, and we have Twitter. Thank God for Twitter, an invention that has single-handedly turned J.R.

Need more proof? Check out these 20 Reasons Why the NBA Is Better Today Than it Ever Was.
