I can see where you might have apprehension about the trapezoid lane. I can't understand why anybody would be against a bigger court. You're players are evolving. They are getting more athletic. Why would you want to hinder their athleticism? Why do you want rules to allow inferior players the opportunity to compete?

One thing people hate is change. I think in time you will see this change is for the better.

Yes, professional basketball players would struggle against the nba range because of the distance of two additional feet. The most athletic league in the world is the british premire league and the nba isn't even close. The nba cover their quality issues with larger courts and more fouls, it's not a fun league to watch.
