A lot can change in 10 years and, for the NBA, that seems especially true. Stars rise and fall, new Champions are born, and the entire landscape of the game changes.

While it can be hard to keep track of it all, NBA fans are some of the best at keeping records. In a recent Tweet that has since gone viral, it takes a look back to the 2010-2011 season, to an NBA world so vastly different than the one we see today.

Looking back on MVP Rose, young Melo, Cleveland LeBron, and Kobe Bean Bryant during his final Championship season certainly bring back the nostalgia. In the comments, fans came up with all kinds of reactions.

Obviously, the game and the league have changed a lot since then. Whether for better or worse is for you to decide.

All we can really do now is appreciate where we are and remember those that helped make the game so special back then.

It really makes you wonder where we'll be by 2031...
