Under the modern basketball system, more and more big players are encouraged to get out of the inside line and throw three points on the outside line. It is well known that in the age of ONeill, he was able to defeat his opponents with amazing basketball dominance. If he were in this era, would he also vote for three points?
The answer given by Oneal is negative. First of all, if I play in this era, I will never score three points, he said. This is not something a big player should do. All these people who want to shoot in front of me, you have to defend me, you have to stop me with three or four fouls. I will punish you severely. I dont lose to those who shoot in front of me. But I defeated everyone by low attack.
Oneal said: if I play in this era, I can get 50 points without scoring three points. Now the players dont think highly of physical games. I can average 50 points a game and play them in tears. I have to punish everyone. When others are doing something, you have to do something different from him. All right, everyone is jumping shot now. Its okay. Im in the same line. Many people do not understand that jumpers are very tired of legs and strength. Many people rely on jump shots against me in the first three quarters. But in the fourth quarter, it wont work. I always have an advantage in physical confrontation.
A monster like Oneal is a special case in any era of rules. In todays small ball era, he is more overwhelming and unable to deal with, and ONeills superb player, agility has been underestimated.
