NBA looking into changing travel rule

In response to increased scrutiny in recent years, the NBA is examining rewriting its traveling rules as soon as next season. It may include allowing for two steps, not one as currently written, and possibly even a provision for LeBron James' famous, or infamous, depending on your perspective, crab-dribble move.

Head of officials Joe Borgia recently asserted that because "the game has evolved," the rule should, too. There's a certain logic to that; when Borgia says, "I don't think the rule has evolved since the time of Bob Cousy," you start to think about how different things are now, and realize how ridiculous it would've been for Cousy to play with 1925 rules. But isn't this just making it easier for offensive players to score? You could apply the same shaky logic to, say, the hand-check rules. It's evolution, but not progress.

But again, if all you need is that no one be breaking the law -- "I disagree with my government, but if it passes the law, I'll enforce it" -- then this is great. We should expect those fallen fans to return to the sports in droves. Another marketing master stroke by David Stern.

A. outlaw flopping & fine/suspend for that nonsense

B. Hire some officials who outside of Bevetta & Violet Palmer arent all barely functioning *******

The NBA said they were going to start fining floppers, but that didn't pan out. And you're the first person I have ever seen not hate Violet Palmer.
