NEW RULES

As part of the camp, a competition-committee meeting was held that resulted in proposals for three rules changes. Tabled was expansion of the use of instant replay beyond end-of-period timing issues.

The three proposals expected to receive approval from the Board of Governors are:

The shot clock only would be reset to five seconds if the offensive team retains possession of a jump ball that comes with five or fewer seconds remaining on the shot clock. Otherwise the shot clock would not be reset. The current rule calls for a reset to 14 seconds if the jump comes with 14 or fewer seconds on the shot clock.

A team that calls a 20-second timeout for injury and also requires a full timeout to treat the player would be reimbursed the 20-second timeout. Currently, a team is charged for both a 20-second and full timeout.

Should a player be injured on the road and return for treatment in a team's home city, he would be required to miss only four games, instead of five, if it is retroactively determined he needed to be placed on the injured list.

I say they should change the 3 second rules to 10 second rules, let the big men have a few more seconds to operate....

I like that about when a player is injured and the team calls a 20 second time out but then calls a full time out. I wish that rule was back during the series against the Spurs when Devean went down. Good change

I also think they should get rid of double technicals, except in the last 2 minutes of each half, and then each team gets a free throw, make better free throw shooting teams get an advantage late...just a thought...
