As a long time player, coach, and (for a while) referee I appreciate the changes. I felt the game was getting out of hand with physical play, particularly as the young men that play big time college basketball started to hit the weight room harder back in the 90's. I think you will find that the game will be more fun to watch as PLAYERS adjust, not officials. My hope is that we begin to see more of the pattern offenses, with screens and back doors. As it has been, if a guy starts to beat you back door, you just grab him and get away with it. If you didn't want an opponent to start their offense on the left side, you pushed the point guard to the right side.Basketball is going to be ugly this year if these tickytacky fouls keep getting called. I went to watch a basketball game and watched a free throw contest instead. Next game will be HORSE? I hope the NCAA calls the refs off a bit.
