its bad for the league as far as entertainment value. dont nobody want to watch 3 and half hour long games and dudes just shooting freethrows. boring af. when they start doing that nonsense i change the channel. 

 

People really forget about exactly what you said, "entertainment value."

 

The NBA is part of the entertainment business. When this hacking stuff became a league wide thing, and you started having players dry hump others on the free throw line, you knew something had to happen. Players out there playing tag and ****

Also, I love the "you get paid millions of dollars you should learn how to shoot free throws."

How about these million dollar players and million dollar coaches learn how to defend. Coaches get paid to teach defense and you prefer they resort to telling their players to foul? Do your job and Teach these dudes how to Defend a CP-DJ pick n roll.

Will anyone even get close to beating LaVine in the dunk comp this year?

That's off the top of my head and it's way worse than this. And the point isn't the amount of people that the rule effects, its the exploitation of the rule being performed with virtually every single team now. It's a widespread thing that is lowkey taking the league by storm.

This "entertainment" argument is dumb.

Why do you think they added a 3 point line? Or a shot clock?

Why did they penalize hand checking? 3 seconds in the key? 5 seconds back to the basket?

All this stuff is to make the game more entertaining. The sport has been brutal to watch at points - the league adapts and makes it more fun to watch.

Yep, basically if you shoot below 60% from the FT line you have potential to be hack-a'd

Hot Take:

 

As good as Porzingis has been this year he would be better outside of the triangle. There are too many times where he's catching the ball in situations that aren't advantageous to his skill set. He shouldn't be trying to put the ball on the floor from 25 feet out. 

 

Would be awesome to see him with a pg and they run a **** ton of P&R all game long.

Don't think that's a hot take, anybody with some sense knows he shouldn't be dribbling the ball that far out (this early in his career anyway)

This isn't about whether or not it's dumb, it's the truth.

 

The NBA is a part of the entertainment business, and when a plague such as this hacking thing becomes as widespread as it has this year, they kind of are forced now to make at least an alteration in regards to the rule, whenever they decide to do so.

Well I mean, he's had a very good rookie season and some people actually think part of why he's been so good this year is because he's in "the right situation" which is why I kind of prefaced my statement as a hot take.

That's what I'm saying. Basically all rule changes are about entertainment or safety.

Fouling anyone above 50% to me is dumb. I still remember Scott Brooks deciding to intentionally foul Omer Asik a few years back in the playoffs when he was nearly shooting 60% from the line (I think). He promptly made like six out of eight. laugh.gif

not a hot take at all, the Knicks thread & myself have been saying this since mid-November

a Melo-KP PnR works more often than not but we run it like once a week. he's not ready to post up yet but most of his touches come in the post.

I think it was JD who posted some actually posted some stats on the intentional fouling this year. Its definitely more than 10 guys who have been intentionally fouled this year. Its way up in frequency. Not limited to Drummond, Dwert and DJ anymore. At all.

the NFL should make a rule where teams can only do onside kicks and 2 point conversions 

 

way more entertaining

But the NBA i'm sure does.

They should change the rule so that if you're shooting under 50% and you get a hacked a shaq you're forced out of the game. Like a reverse foul out. That way you eliminate abuse while still leaving the onus on the player to make your got damn free throws.

Speaking of bad entertainment... I just watched this video clip on ESPN of Dwight Howard shooting the ball from beyond the baseline with the title "from way downtown"... Thinking it would be him making one. It was just a video of him horribly missing three shots laugh.gif what the hell has happened to ESPN? I don't even know why I still go on that site.

I won't rehash my thoughts on this hacking stuff from a few weeks ago (I don't like it and think the rule should be changed).

But I'll say this, a small part of me doesn't want them to change it because I think it's funny when coaches hurt their own team by doing it. Like if you foul a guy who's not a bad enough FT shooter for the strategy to be effective. Or when their team struggles to score in the half court so they're hurting their own team's offense. Or even funnier, when they do it 5 times in a row to start a quarter and then have to play the entire quarter in the penalty. I kind of don't want them to save the dumber coaches from themselves. laugh.gif
