ISTANBUL -- The secretary general of FIBA, the governing body of international basketball, would like to see the NBA change its goaltending rules to allow players to knock the ball off the rim.

The official, Patrick Baumann, made the comment during a lunch meeting with eight selected American and European journalists Thursday before the final two quarterfinal games at the FIBA World Championship.

FIBA rules allow players to knock the ball off the rim after it touches the cylinder, whereas in the NBA that would constitute a goaltending violation.This is like America inventing some stupid soccer rules and trying to force the rest of the world to play by them. Quit trying to change OUR game.

That would be horrible for the NBA. Can you imagine Kobe shooting a jumpshot at the buzzer in game 7 of the finals and have it swatted off the rim by Lebron? The outrage would never end.

The NBA should first reconsider the 3 second violation rule. That's pretty much it

Well if he made it nothing but net, Lebron wouldn't have a chance at it!

I don't like it - it favors tall players over skilled players. BUT I can see the FIBA President's thinking because he is making NBA-style changes to FIBA play so at the very least it helps his international credibility to suggest the NBA make concessions as well.

No thanks. Like the examples above, it's not something that needs to be changed. Goaltending is a good rule in the league the way we have it.

No thanks. A player would be able to legally hit the ball of the game at least 2 times a game at the NBA level. Don't need that; stern better not change it.

NBA should tell FIBA to change that stupid goaltending rule they have. It's just dumb to be able to hit the ball when it's on the rim.

FIBA is gay. The only reason they allow goal tending in international play is because noone other than team USA can touch the rim.

I woudl support fiba telling nba to ****ing call the traveling RIGHT like it is supposed to in BOTH rule books.

Yeo the rule is the same, but nba refs "forget" bout it.

Can an offensive player knock the ball in after it touches the rim? If no, then I think the rule is ridiculous. Either way, I wouldn't change to it. It's dumb either way.

a game a Canadian LEFT Canada to invent in America :cool:

OT: he lived and taught in Springfield, Mass for 5 years. He invented the game in his first year at the YMCA there. He didn't "leave Canada" to invent the game. He invented it while he was working away from home. There's a major difference. btw, he returned to Canada and spread the game he invented after building the athletic program at the University of Kansas where he was faculty.

Anyway, let's get back to FIBA rules.

this just in, if fiba had the athletes the NBA does, it would change its rule, players in the nba would have an easy time swating balls off the rim. its just stupid.

I'd rather have them try to tweak the travel rule, and have a change of refs. I 'm not so fond of the superstar calls and 'blind' calls.

Hamburgers, hot dogs, apple pie and baseball all have European origins, yet they're still undoubtedly "American" nowadays. And hockey has roots all the way back to Ancient Egypt, yet very few would argue the fact that today it is considered to be a Canadian sport. So we could be here forever arguing who may lay claim to what. In the end, does it really matter?

Now, back to the topic. Should the NBA listen to FIBA's suggestion? Hell no! Sure, the NBA has its problems, but this is not one of them. The NBA has already proven that if they want to make changes, they will. Mind your business, FIBA!

The defensive three-second rule is fine. Without it, you'd have seven-footers camping out in the lane for entire possessions.

wich makes me wonder.....

In unevirsity in Usa at the highes level, like Harvard and etc how do they teach it to the alumni?

because the great ones who become gret scientists MAY end up working with other great scientists form THE rest of the (non bitish imperium) world wich ALL work on metic system.

Harvard? I went to public middle school in America, and I've known the metric system (from school) since 6th grade (aspects of it before that, but that is when it was taught in science courses). I work in a chem. lab right now (in America), and we're all very familiar with both of 'em.

sciences use metric. As far as everyday stuff like temperature on the news, speed limits, we don't.

Stupid. With the athletes in the NBA, every other shot would be blocked after it hit the rim. Dwight Howard would have like 10 blocks a game.

NYKalltheway
09-12-2010, 12:58 AM
they don't count as blocks. just help on rebounding really. it's not in the stats. (unless in the NBA it is)

Elementary school kids use the metric system in science.

Everyone in America knows the metric system, we just don't use it. We use the metric system in sciences.
