Default Re: If you could add one new thing to basketball, what would it be ..

There was a thread on here a while ago where the OP proposed that all FT's be taken at the end of each quarter (except for the last 5 minutes or so of the fourth quarter).

The game would go by so much faster. And the end of quarter free throw shooting sessions would just be like a little intermission for the fans who don't want to watch free throws. But if you do like watching free throws for some reason, then stick around at the end of the quarter and watch problem.

A potential problem would be of course that the offensive team would lose it's chance for an offensive rebound off of a missed free throw...but hey, I'm sure that happens only like 5% of the time anyway. That's negligible.

Pretty simple. If I was commissioner, I'd do it.
