Since the beginning of my basketball interest i always wanted this and always failed to see the logic in why it wasnt implemented... yes it would be unfair to implement it right now, unfair towards the past players i mean, considering how many assists THEY could have gotten....... but the NBA has done this in the past with the recording of blocks & steals remember? Not to mention awards aswell such as DPOY & FMVP..... addition of 3pt line.. hand-checking... and so on and so on...
It's just numbers... F*ck stats

They might be a little over the hill. At least Russel would be.

But it'd be cool to see Reggie, Hakeem, Penny, Shaq and Jordan, and guys who are still in some shape play.

Only one FT for any foul. Fouled at the three point line? Then a FT worth 3 points.

Allow goaltending with no 3 second violation on a designated "goalie."

Not sure if it's a good thing or not to add "goalies," it might make the game boring similar to soccer and hockey. But it would be more of a defensive game.

FT shoot-out if the game is tied at the end of first overtime, no 2OT or 3OT needed. The teams send five players to shoot five FTs, whoever hits more FTs win the game. If it's still tied up after five rounds, they send extra players for each additional round till someone misses.

Would'nt the Goalie just block every shot that comes? MOST NBA centers would easily swat away shots above the rim.

From Bill Simmons:

The team with the best record chooses their opponents during the playoffs, then the second best record, etc.
I think this should also count for the semi-finals.
