No, it's important. It deepens their bonds. It was shown that teams that wer eway more physicals towards each other were better in the long run that team that didn't.

I think it was those Run n Gun Suns

after they had so much success, and a lot of it was predicated on team chemistry and genuine like of one another, everyone copied it.

Exactly.

The more players on a team touch each other the more likely that they are to win the game. Anyone who says that it's stupid has probably never played a team sport in their life.

They need to reduce free throws from 10 seconds to 5 seconds, and give the ball right back for the second one (no slapping hands).

That would cut down-time so much... I can't believe they haven't done this already.

They don't want to cut down on time.
