Look, I don't mind if you're down 8 points with 40 seconds to go. It's a desperation move. But when you do it like the Rockets did with 4-5 minutes left, it ruins the game. I was looking forward a team attempt to lock down defensively or go on a scoring tear, instead I got 20 minutes worth of free throws. It really ruins a good game. And don't think it's a lakers thing cause when I see it happen in other games I think the same thing.

This could be one of the few things Stern has done right. Would def earn some points back in my book (like that matters lol).

It does make the game boring seeing the same guy getting fouled for 75% of the quarter.

I'd like to see the team get to pick who shoots the free throws.

Or have the 2 minute rule apply when the player getting fouled doesn't have the ball.

But that makes too much sense.

Will not get changed. It helps s way to much and the league would get way to much bad publicity. Also its a legit strategy. Been around for years and if you cant hit FT's then so be it. Whats next make it so superstars need 8 fouls to foul out.

It's not so much taking it out as it is modifying the rule.

- If you foul away from the ball, the player who has the ball should be shooting free throws.

- Good one I heard on AM710, which is one Ireland, Mason, Kellerman all agreed on. If a player is fouled off the ball, the team can select which one of its players can take the foul shots.


Everyone can agree with the strategy and say the league won't change it, but the NBA revised the rule a couple times with the biggest change being the last two minutes of games.

At the end of games, teams have to prevent certain players from getting the ball so they don't shoot free throws. What's the big deal with extending that last two minute rule to let's say the last five minutes or the entire fourth quarter?
