Yappi will become famous soon enough
A ridiculous number of NBA records were broken in the 2016-17 season

Quote:
For a year once thought to be a foregone conclusion—that the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors would barrel through the other 28 teams on the way to the finals — this season has brought about some of the most inconceivable moments the NBA has ever seen.

Records were shattered left and right, the most notable coming from Russell Westbrook, who broke Oscar Robertson’s longstanding mark of 41 triple-doubles in a single season. But it wasn’t just Westbrook who marched into NBA lore, but the league as a whole. This is a season the likes of which fans have never seen before. From the number of threes made, to the number of individuals turnovers, to Anthony Davis' monumental All-Star scoring night, this season belongs in a class of its own.

We gathered every record that was broken this year. It’s a stark reminder that even though we still may see a Cavs-Warriors finals rematch for the third season in a row, this year left a lot more to remember than anyone could have imagined.

The defense criticism always cracks me up. Put me on record as saying the NBA players are much better than they were in the past.

EP, for once I agree with you! For the most part, as each generation goes by, the skill level gets better. That's why it's so difficult to compare players from other eras.

It's truly astounding the difference in offensive skill set between college and NBA players. In two minutes of NBA play you may see eight consecutive shots go in, whereas I've watched five minute spans in college basketball where neither team hits a shot

One of the issues that the NBA has morphed into is a league of really good offensive players, and others who are great athletes. This really started with more of the iso ball that we've seen over the last two decades. A guy like Dennis Rodman could not score if it wasn't a layup or dunk. Wasn't even part of the offense. But he had crazy athleticism and could guard just about anyone. Think about the players today that are really good at one facet of the game, but struggle at the other aspects.
