Not sure when the last time you've really followed the NBA, but they're constantly tweaking the rules and the current iteration is causing high scoring. Coupled with the affinity and ability of 3 point shooting.
https://www.espn.com/nba/insider/insider/story/_/id/34914249/nba-teams-scoring-historic-rates-offensive-surge

If you don't have ESPN+ - basically there are a couple factors.
1) they changed the "take foul" to be a technical plus maintain possession. So there are now more transition opportunities as teams shy away from "take fouls".
2) there's a bigger emphasis on offensive rebounding now, which results in more opportunities for the offense. This may be related to the "take foul" transition rule change.

Main reason IMHO is teams don't know how or want to play defense.
Only on DDF does 24/6 mean 24/5/half/half

The mindset is offense not defense. The Bulls won their 6 rings with a killer instinct on defense.

Could that have to do with the game being rougher back then? I think we've discussed before how teams from the 90's would get crushed in today's league because they'd get foul calls every defense play.

That seems logical to lead to a higher scoring game.

Na it's all about the players and coaches mindset, they only care about scoring and being the next Jordan. They arent looking to actually win the game.

Where is this coming from? Teams can't be offensive minded and want to win?

Sarcasm detectors aren't compatible with all-inclusive margaritas.

Just think how high the numbers would be without the great defense teams are playing.  :)

NBA scorers are putting up historic offensive outputs almost every night

ok I'll bite. For context, at age 38, Jordan was sucking with the Wizards; Lebron is still playing at an All-NBA level.
