What would you change about the NBA?


 What would you change about the NBA?
topic by Dee Grande - 01-28-2009, 12:03 PM - Boxden > BX SportsCenter


Steve Aschburner of SI.com has a piece today involving the readers and their thoughts on what should be changed to make the NBA better.

A few of the suggested changes proposed by the readers include: playoffs, playground style; first-round byes in the playoffs; fix the dunk contest; end the flopping; and increasing pace ("Change the :24 clock to :20").

My vote goes for eliminating flopping and going back to five-games (from the current seven) in the first round of the playoffs.

What would you change, or add, to improve the game we all love?

definitely need to institute technicals for flopping (which i think they already bull####ted and said they were doing this year) and fines/suspensions for repeat offenders

less fouls called and allowing hand checking. Its to easy for players to get to the foul line

Hockey has a diving rule, and so does soccer nba needs to follow, they should have a system like how they do technicals.

-Let's see, I'd shorten the season to about 60 games.

-I'd shorten the time off between games in the playoffs. Why does it take 2 and a half weeks to play the first round? why?

-I'd make the first two rounds best of 5 while the conference finals and NBA finals would be 7

-I'm sorry, holding your forearm in the back of an opponent while he's posting up is a FOUL. Call that #### every time. Handchecking is gay a$s defense, play straight up.

hire college refs.
Because you have to get mugged in college to get a shooting foul called and in the nba all u have to do is jump into a guy, that #### never gets u a call in college.

Eliminate the bull#### hand check calls. You still call a foul when a player mugs a guy trying to go around him, but let a lot of that other nonsense go.

You get rid of the zone and you'll see player's playing 1 on 1 every damn game and scoring will go up because they can get to the rim damn near anytime they want.

Eliminate BS refereeing. Be consistent. I want to pull my hair out every time I see that mother####er Chris Paul acting like a 10 year old getting hit by a mack truck every time he runs into a defender.

i just want to see some teams in the NBA actually press. I cant remember the last time I saw a press that worked in the NBA and even then they only do it at the end of games. The day I see a 2-2-1 press in the NBA I will be happy
