  • I like that FIBA gets through games a lot faster. I don't mind the tighter whistles on certain types of plays. But if you end up with a system where Joe Ingles and Patty Mills type players look like your stars, we'll there's something a bit off with that too. Some history in various sports where clutching/grabbing/physicality closes the gap between super talented players and mediocre players. NBA did get it right in that no one's buying tickets to see Bruce Bowen types clutch and grab guys on the perimeter, we want to see Steph Curry unleashed.

    The foul baiting is too much for sure. The rule adjustment for unnatural offensive movement should help next year. I wouldn't mind the gather step taken out of the travel rules but that'll never happen. I like the current zone defence rules, though makes it hard for post players. Dominant post players used to feast because you had to defend them one on one. Mind you going back to that might balance out the 3 point shootout game flow we're getting now.

    • Almost forgot - live ball up on the rim is the easiest and most obvious one to implement

            If Leo lived forever, humanity would evolve the ability to force their ear lobs into their ears at the sound of his voice. In the meantime, sound-cancelling headphones and ear plugs are a sure thing investment.

                • $10 bet returns $800 for Japan winning a medal? Is this a terrible bet?

                      Host countries typically exceed expectations, but there won't be any fans. I don't think Japan will get far IMO. But it's also only $10.
