Lou Williams on LeBron James playing in 1975: "He would win 15 championships in a row"


During the recent Gilbert Arenas podcast "No Chill" he and Lou Williams discussed the difference in the NBA today and in the past, predominantly the NBA in the '90s. Both Arenas and Williams argued how the game and the players evolved and are far more superior to players from the past simply because of their athletic ability.

Arenas said he started to hate players from that era, especially Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman who believe the game today is soft and how players in the NBA today wouldn't be able to contribute on the same level back then.

"I started to hate everybody in the '90s that played basketball, that whole group because they think their s**t don't stink. You have Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman who are both 6'7" and both weigh 210. They talk about how they going to stop somebody in today's game. With 6'7 and 210 you are a little guard in today's game. They have no idea about evolution."

Lou Williams is aware this is a hot topic for discussion, especially among him and his friends and he believes that if LeBron played in 1975 he would be unstoppable and win numerous championships in a row because there wouldn't be a single player that could stop him.

"I always have these debates with my friends. Can you imagine dropping LeBron in 1975, he would win 15 championships in a row. It would be the same if you can think of the worst player in the NBA today and put him in 1968."
