I think Tony Allen was the guy that they had a credible concern that he was going to be murdered at a game in Chicago.  Can’t remember the details, but he evidently wronged some dudes who weren’t going to let it go.

"While James Harden triple jumps his way to the three point line." What a great line.

Definitely too many bull**** 3 point shooting fouls.  The stat they showed - 1,091 last year compared to 196 in in the 2000-2001 season - is very telling.

 

Now compare the number of 3pt attempts last year vs 2001 season.

Ah true I didn't consider that.  Do you happen to have that stat?  Still, that discrepancy is too large to simply be chalked up to more players shooting 3 point shots.  Clearly players are intentionally trying to draw fouls.  The kicking of legs and flops really bother me, almost as bad as soccer flopping but not quite as dramatic or absurd.

If I had to guess, the increase in attempts is astronomical since 2001.

 

Edit. According to the link below it has gone up from 14.7 3pt attempts per game to 34.6 last year.

That was the first I had heard of that rule change.

 

And I welcome it with open arms.  

 

Can't wait to see all the crying by a very specific group of players now lol.

But 3 point fouls went up with 3.8% a game to like 8.2%. So it’s not like he foul rate has stayed consistent. It has gone by players like harden trying to game the system.

3pt attempts are up 235% since 2001. It only make sense that fouls on those shots would go up, not to mention they'd be more contested in the current version of the game. And I've agreed that the rule needed to be tweaked. I also said poor defensive play should not be rewarded.

This change is not rewarding poor defense.

 

No one is saying that the number of fouls wouldn't go up since attempts went up, but they didn't go up at even close to the same rate.

Now the league has to address guys flopping everytime they're being backed down in the paint. Acting like Shaq is posting them up. Such weak calls.

 

Stand your ****ing ground. Get some weakside help if you need it.
