    Im not just saying this because these new rules are affecting harden. But the amount of fouls that go uncalled( not ticky-tack either) but OBVIOUS FOULS that go missed everynight is alarming. This is not 80's or 90's basketball. This is the nfl meets the nba type of basketball

    the rules stated in the offseason that the league was trying to curve "unnatural basketball motions", the fouls that im seeing are not unnatural motions.. these obvious fouls that are being missed.

    I cant watch this crap much longer, seems like every player drives to the basket gets hammered and their is no call. Its almost like the refs pick and choose when to call fouls.

    im like how are people entertained by this ****, this isnt euroleague basketball, they call fouls in the euroleague.. literally every star player in the league right now is shooting horrible from the field because the defense gets away with murder not only on the perimeter but in the paint as well. These new rules favor teams like bucks, raptors, heat, and warriors.. Teams that were already physical and are allowed to get away with rough tactics before are allowed to now even more

    so let me get this straight. you'd rather watch an NBA game with a lot more foul calls and all the interruptions in play that those calls would entail versus games with far fewer foul calls?

    NO the league said they wanted to curve "unnatural shooting motions" that was what they said( something i have no problem with), but they are now allowing handchecking and defensive 3 seconds to go uncalled. I dont see how harden survives this year under how the game is currently being called

    Fouls and stoppages are the best part of the game, obviously. We get to see who the smart players are, it's cerebral.

    I'm sorry about Harden bro... Hopefully your next fav player does not depend on fouls to score...

    I know you're lobbing us some big fat slowballs down the middle but I honestly have nothing to say about your tragic loss of interest in pro wrestling

    the nfl has more commericals and stoppages when a player is on the ground injured or after a team scores

    the nba moved tnt thurdsay games back to tuesday during the nfl season recently.. i can see the mlb passing the nba in the next 5 years easily.. especially is no american superstar player emerges during that time span. The best players in the league will all be international, and most americans wont watch that, we saw giannis in the nba finals recently and the tv ratings were trash

    You can take the Os out of the D&D, but you can't take the D&D out of Os.

    the nfl is king and the nba is losing american supporters literally every day( going by neilson ratings). Like i said the best players will all international players sooner than later. I wonder what espn and fs1 are gonna do when lebron retires.. their gonna finally be forced to acknowledge guys like jokic, and embiid. Most americans dont wanna hear about them.
