Quality? I wouldn’t say a 3 point shooting contest with no defense being played is better quality. Maybe more entertaining, but the 90’s was better quality basketball.
Better quality in terms of more balanced teams. Talent level doesn’t even come close to now. Oliver Miller played in the 90s...

Balanced teams? 1/3 of NBA is tanking, running out G League players. There's like 6 quality rosters in the NBA, if even that. The rest of the NBA is blowout after blowout, with winner determined by who was hot that night.
Yea a league that had the likes of..
Magic- Shaq and Penny
Knicks- Ewing, Starks, Oakley, Mason
Pacers- Reggie, Davis Bros
Heat- Zo and Hardaway
Bulls- MJ and Scottie
Pistons- Isiah and Dumars
Cavs- Price and Daughtery
Rockets- Dream and Drexler
Suns- Barkley, KJ and Majerle
Sonics- Payton and Kemp
Lakers- Magic and Worthy
Jazz- Stockton and Malone
Just to name a few off the top of my head. We have literally 2-3 teams now that can play for a title. People may call it slow and boring, but I call it cerebral and hard nosed... even as a kid I appreciated that. Talent level tho, there are more all time great players back then. You can name plenty of scrubs in any era... that doesn’t really say much.
2pac. Eminem. Big Pun. Nicki Minaj. Dr. Dre
AZ. Scarface. Method Man. Redman. R Kelly. Beatnuts
Talib Kweli. De La Soul. Naughty By Nature. Joe
