    After so many decades of basketball playing, one would think no more new tricks on the court can be invented and patented... But this:

    When Harden fell on the floor with the ball, Jeremy Lin brilliantly called a time-out, kept the Rocket possession ! Something of new NBA playing invention... Expect other high IQ'd NBA players to use it....

    Charles Barkley did something similar during the Phoenix Bulls final, he did with out of bound.

    To call a timeout for yourself as you are falling down or out of bound is common place in NBA games, but to do it on your teammate is entire new, I believe.

    I would rank this on the same level of Don Nelson's "hack-a-Shaq" firstly creation, and to some extent, when Kobe launched a half-court shut as "hack-a-Ho" taking place...

    I think it's a fairly common move actually.

    People do it - but usually there's a coach yelling for someone to take the T-Out.

    The fake timeout during the NY game was better

    Clearly Lin only called the timeout to see if Harden is alright.

    Did you just start watching basketball last year? Players have been doing this since....you could call timeout.
