Re: Basketball Rule Change Idea
If you think about it, a team with the lead could possibly hold the ball for the last 3 or 4 or 5 minutes of the game and score 6 or 8 points. If I am coaching a team that is behind and I do not have the option of fouling, then I have to press and hope to come up with steals. I can easily see a number of fouls being committed, a number of free throws being made and (if the clock is reset) a long time being run off the clock. I do not see the upside.
Does anyone remember Dean Smith, Carolina, Phil Ford and the four corners?
Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
