Re: If you could add one new thing to basketball, what would it be ..
The other day I wondered how the game would be with substitutions in the flow of the game. Like make the area around the court a little bigger and teams could sub by one player leaving the floor for another during the game after a rebound etc.
Another thing could be to have a select player shoot free throws on any foul that warrants it. Today players on defense go real hard against certain players in scoring position. I think having a select shooter for all free throws would force the defense to rely more on not fouling making more good offensive plays possible. The fewer FT's shot the more entertaining basketball will be to watch.
