Default Bill Laimbeer, Larry Nance, Charles Oakley, Charles Barkley, etc wouldn't last today

So many players from the old school would be banned from this NBA. 9:09 left in the 3rd quarter of the Cavs vs Celtics game Glen Davis had a physical denial of an Anderson Varejao drive, a little arguing insued, Glen Davis was kicked out of the game for this physical play. Players like Bill Laimbeer would be thrown out of at least 41 of 82 games under these rules.

Whatever happened to the:

No
Babies
Allowed

league?

This was 80's basketball:

Too bad that Detroit brawl ruined the game. The league doesn't want things to even escalate to any kind of confrontation whatsoever.

We are here to see basketball , not fighting.

If you want to see fighting go watch MMA or something. I swear you are retarded.

Anyone can get in their and hack someone. Playing defense with your feet takes true skills.

That's okay. It's good if thugs wouldn't be allowed; I pay to see skilled players and not cheap plays. Hard fouls are one thing, cheap plays and trying to injure another player is another. So I'm perfectly fine with players being thrown out for not playing the game the right way...

tell that to Garnett haters. If somebody hits you (Peeler, Pachulia, etc.) and you don't strike back you're a wuss apparently. It can't have anything to do with the fact that you want to stay in the game.

I don't like touch calls, I am not talking about that. But the game should remain clean, trying to injure players on drives is not good for the game, and I am glad they have cracked down on it.

It became the No Bullies Allowed league. I can never forget some of the confrontations and physical play between Pip & Rodman/X-Man, MJ/Detroit, etc. Of course the NBA today has it's advantages and improvements in certain points, but I really wish it hadn't come to this. Let them play a bit physical, not to the point it was at before 92-93 of course, but also as andgar923 said before, not as bad to where we can't tell the difference between a Celtics/Cavs regular season game vs a Celtics/Cavs playoff matchup, besides of course the media intensity and coaches more in tune.

I think it is very hard (if not impossible) to defend an NBA star 1-1 without touching them. Unless you pressure them with aggressive double team.

Davis went for the neck, hence the call.
