Okay, time for some blasphemy. I want to change one of the cardinal rules in Basketball.
The rule?? explulsion for fouls. Okay, I know you purists wish to return to the days of jump balls after each made basket, but hear me out.
The team is already punished on a foul: a defensive foul continues the offenses possession, and posiilby results in free throws. An offensvie foul results in cahnge of possession. Why the double-penaly? If a player fouls constantly, they'll be sending the other team to the line.
Something else I'd change: let any player on the floor take the FT's, as they do for free kicks in soccer. That would eliminate some of the hard fouls and rough play at the end of games.
I'll be holding my breath and turning blue as I wait for these rule changes, plus the D1 college football playoff....
