You mean lack of illegal defense (when defender drops two zones below man and addition of defensive 3 sec). Zone defense does not pressure you like physical half court traps, corner traps, and aggressive double teams do. If you can shoot the ball then what is the big deal. A good zone (like Celtics) is based on effective man to man defense principles, because there are still bad teams who play it poorly.

This foul from tonights game gave me an idea for a video. I'll post it here tonight, or in the morning when I finish it.

Yup. I think that's a very underrated factor in how games have been called since then. That incident was a huge black eye for the league internationally, and Dictator Stern probably has nightmares about it happening again.

I'll tell you like this....fans that are in their late 20s and up, know whats up.


Fans in their teens, are just as soft as current NBA players. Spoiled really.


I mean ive seen several plays where it was a nice hard foul, and EVERYONE on the team gets riled up.


It makes no damn sense.

People pay to see guys fight in the NHL so why can fans pay to see an ocassional fight in the NBA??


I see nothing wrong with a altercation every once in a while.

i do agree with techs for hard fouls but man it pisses me off when players get
techs for hanging on to the rim for too long or screaming after dunk or taunting

Nowadays the game is too soft. I like how games were called in the '90s, all fouls that were committed during plays were personal fouls. They only gave technical fouls if punches were thrown or there were advanced altercations. Flagrant fouls were close to unheard of. There weren't many ejections either. I remember this one game where the Bulls and Knicks had a brawl in the playoffs where both teams went into the first row while David Stern was a few rows away . He didn't make any changes then, but I guess that was different than the Indiana/Detroit incident because fans weren't directly involved.
