    Six fouls is a big mistake. There's too many fouls today, and IMO a foul call is one of the most boring play in sports.
    I hate it when good players (or any player) fouls out, actually, so my solution sounds ridiculous, but hear me out.

    Change the limit to 4 fouls....

    Why? Because of how it affects the game.
    Refs will have to be more careful, players will need to be careful, and it will let the players actually play instead of hacking.

    Rule changes have an effect on the game. More fouls allowed will lead to more fouls called.
    Fewer fouls allowed will lead to fewer fouls called- I'm sure of it.

    Ok, but we weren’t talking about defensive fouls. We were talking about offensive players backing down the defender in the post. Regardless, that style of play doesn’t really exist anymore in college or the NBA.

    Are you saying that I'm redundant? That I repeat myself? That I say the same thing again and again? That I'm redundant?

    Im still wondering if you are ever going to tell us who/what is backing defenders down on any regular basis in today’s NBA.

    Julius Randle for one.

    Randle might post someone up and take a couple dribbles to feel which way the defender is leaning before making his move. He isn’t backing people down like a big man in the 80’s and 90’s. Even then, that’s not the basis of his game. He’s turned into a very complete player offensively.

    I didn’t say that was his complete game. He is however backing defenders down and then taking the little fadeaway jumper.

    The question was who is consistently backing people down in the NBA today. I don’t think that what Randle does can be considered backing people down. He posts up sometimes, but he’s not backing people down to the hoop and moving them off their position. It’s very rare to see that in the NBA.

    My gripe about fouls is how they're called. Basketball is a fast paced game and I understand it is difficult to officiate but I'm tired of seeing fouls calls based on the perception contact was made. I have first hand experience of getting called for fould where I took myself out of the play literally jumped straight up in the air and avoid making contact because I knew I would basically have to reach and probably foul the player. Ref still called a foul when I was literally 1 to 2 feet away from making any contact.

    This would also help with the flopping. Also in the case of flopping selling contact is a tough one to officiate. The calls I have issues with are once again the no contact flops that LeBron and wade made so common. Some of their antics were easily corrected with a simple review


    I'll never understand how people defend this. His flops against Chicago and Dallas where he stops play should have warrant either technicals or even a quarter suspension. Ruins the whole game

    Shaq? o_O

    When is the last time Shaq played in the NBA?

    The person I responded to initially suggested that it is prevalent in today’s game. I said that in the last 15 years or so the game has changed. Shaq and guys like him are long gone. Today’s game is more about 3 point shooting and step backs.

    I, for one, didn’t get the joke. I’m probably not the only one.
