Well in the early days of basketball players were more fundamentally sound wheres as now days players are much more flashy. Also in the 50s players shot release was much lower and percentages were lower because the shot technique was not as effective as it is today. Players took more shots in the old days also. Although they didn't have 3 point lines, they almost always scored over a hundred points. They didn't have a lot of set up plays either. The game involved more fast breaks, guards taking the first shot they got, or giving the ball directly to their big man. Today, there is more set up plays, and the guards walk the ball up the court, instead of pushing it like the guard did in the old days.
