You pick 3 which are brought back for next season. Cant just pick one you like. You pick all 3. Lets say if you refuse to pick it will be selected at random draft lottery style.
Pick the 3 you most want/would be willing to accept.
1. Only get 2 free throws when fouled attempting(and missing) a 3. I realized recently a lot of you probably dont remember when fouling a 3 point shooter was still 2 free throws. It wasnt even that long ago. This changed in the 90s.
2. Technical foul if player called for a foul does not raise his hand and acknowledge his guilt(this went away in the 50s in the nba).
3. Three to make two FT rule(You get 3 shots to make 2...or two shots to make 1). This is why you see guys not trying to box out when a bad Ft shooter is going for an and 1 in old footage. If he misses the first he gets another one. They box out on the second.
4. Reduce the lane size back to 6 feet(pre Mikan) or 12 feet(pre wilt) your choice which.
5. Five seconds closely guarded rule. This still exists on some levels but you never hear about it in nba discussion so ill explain briefly. If a guy is defending you up close you have 5 seconds to take action. Usually passing. Its still used on lower levels and in FIBA(unless something changed recently). In international basketball it was one meter. In womens ball its a little different. In HS it depends on the state. The NBA got rid of it in the stone ages when they first disallowed zone defenses I believe. Im talking like...before George Mikan was a Laker stone ages. Now that you can zone again? **** it. It would be possible to bring it back. In college its a little different. You can hold it 5 seconds.....dribble 5...hold it again. Its not just 5 seconds of inaction period. That would be a nice compromise in this situation id say. This is how its called in its strictest form:
And id be ok with that just to see Harden and Lebron complain.
6. Free throws given for offensive fouls when in the bonus just like defensive. So a guy draws a charge on you while your team is over the limit...the guy who drew the charge is taking free throws on the other end. This went away in the 50s.
7. Jump ball after a foul in the bonus with under 3 minutes to play in a game. This was done to prevent intentional fouls....it kept the team fouling from automatically getting the ball after the FTs. The league wanted you to have to play defense and just let the clock run. They had to tweak it later so you couldnt have a center foul a point guard to get the unfair advantage so you could just pick who jumped(technically the ref asked the fouled teams coach to choose who the fouled players opposing man was...so if Capela fouls Steph then Steve Kerr would pick Chris Paul to jump with him to possibly get the ball back).
