Bulls’ legend Dennis Rodman shared his thoughts on the way the game of basketball is played today, claiming that it is difficult to watch the NBA nowadays.

Rodman talked about the domination of the three-pointers, with players like Stephen Curry and Damian Lillard changing the game’s orientation.

“Not really. Seriously, not really,” Rodman said on watching the NBA these days. “It’s just very hard to watch because once you’ve played the game the way we played, intensity, just competitiveness. But now it’s more like, I don’t want to watch players come down and shoot 50-footers. That’s not basketball. I understand you want to score long-range, but my god… It’s difficult to watch, but a lot of kids love it.”

The Bulls’ legend played in a different era, where the three-pointer had not had a central role in the teams’ strategy. Rodman finished his career with averages of 7.3 points, 13.1 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game.
