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.
