New NBA rule
« on: August 10, 2017, 06:15:43 pm »

New rule will prevent teams from resting healthy players.  It is designed to protect fans who pay hefty prices for tickets from being disappointed when the superstars don't play.  And to protect TV.

To be fair, the league has also changed scheduling to reduce back to backs and eliminate 4 game in 5 night stretches.  In short, there should be less of a need to rest healthy players as the schedule is less physically demanding.  They are starting a week earlier, which effectively builds in 7 extra off days.

The interesting rule change, to me, is the cap on timeouts in the end of quarter/half/game scenarios, as well as the time changes for the length of those TOs.

Its going to hamper the more effective X and O guys in the league in end game situations, and put a premium on veterans who know how to manage the end of game situations without the benefit of a timeout.

Interesting. . . So this applies to the playoffs as well, there will be a whole day on "first take" bs applied to somebody being upset by this rule.

The resting thing is laughable; I don't see how they can ever actually enforce players resting.

They need a rule where you cannot take over two steps without dribbling the ball.

They aren't prohibiting anyone from resting.  They have reduced the need for rest by building more off days and fewer game heavy stretches (back to back and 4 games in 5 days).  If teams continue to excessively or unnecessarily  rest healthy players even with the scheduling concessions made by the league, I would expect teeth added to enforcement in the future.  Hopefully it will not be needed.

It's okay if one of your three steps involves jumping into the air and landing on both feet.
