I never thought I would see the day in which aggressive hugging is deemed unacceptable.

It’s kind of Greco-Roman-ish to see Utah Jazz’s Rudy Gobert and Indiana Pacers’ Myles Turner unleash forceful affection to one another.

But in all seriousness, I guess this is what we get from the pounce Nikola Jokic executed onto Markieff Morris.

Players are not going to back down from a fight.

In some ways, I like it. I guess this aggressive stance might push the NBA back to the olden times wherein centers are not pushed to the side and fouls aren’t as ticky-tacky.

Now I am not calling for teams to end up with Kermit Washington vibes but a couple of shots here and there wouldn’t hurt.

I mean, it would hurt.

Just saying that I miss the physical plays. I always look forward to the playoffs whenever the Miami Heat steps to the court against the New York Knicks.

Alonzo Mourning going at it against Larry Johnson is the best.

Also, you can't stop Shaquille O'Neal, Charles Barkley, Karl Malone, and Patrick Ewing if you're just going to nudge them off their tracks. Yes, I am about to turn 40 years old with a keyboard in front of me and a lot of Funko pops on the side but gosh darn it, let's bring back the 80s and the 90s awesomeness.
