View Full Version : D-league changes goaltending rules (NBA next?)

The NBA Development League plans to alter its rules this season to incorporate the FIBA-like goaltending rules, meaning that once the ball strikes the rim, players will be allowed to either swat the ball off the rim or tip it in unlike the NBA's current rules that state that an imaginary cylinder exists that has the basket as its base and touching the ball while any part of it is in this cylinder -- and still has a chance to go in -- is a violation. The league will also institute a three-minute overtime as opposed to the current NBA-standard five-minute overtime, with the same rules being instituted that are currently used in the last two minutes of the fourth quarter.

These rule changes are rumored to have been a request from the NBA as an experiment, presumably similar to the D-League's testing of the new synthetic basketball prior to it's official introduction into the NBA for the 2006-07 season. The new basketball didn't last for long in the NBA, however, as NBA commissioner David Stern brought back the original leather basketball less than halfway into the season.

So are they trying to develop the players for overseas ball? The point of the D League is to get young players ready for NBA ball. It shouldn't be a rule test dummy that'll mess these young guys up...

Makes sense IMO and why not use on the D-league. There's a reason why they are called the D-League.

My point is these kids should be playing using the NBA rules, since that what they are trying to DEVELOP to be. Why learn to block a ball one way, get good at it, then get called for goal tending everytime you "block" the ball. What happens then, he gets sent back down to the D League to sharpen his basketball IQ with non NBA rules.

The NBA is testing the rule to see if they want to implement it in the NBA. If the NBA follows in the next few years it won't matter that the D-league changed it's rule. And if they don't like it, they'll just change it back at the end of the year.

1. The idea is that the NBA might implement the rule and, if that happened, the d-leaguers would be "ahead of the curve." Far better that it be tested there than in the NBA.

2. Although it is called the "Developmental League," it really doesn't do that much developing. How many of these guys have actually made it up to the league? I mean, teams aren't even generally sending their rookies down because they want to work on specific things with them and they really don't learn much there.

Why is everyone so against this?

This will only allow players to tap the ball off the rim.

This will NOT make catching shots in-front of the hoop legal

Dont want some one to knock your shot off the rim? Dont miss!

I don't like this rule change because more then likely they did it to see if it would work and that means there is chance we might see it in the nba

I am not a big fan of the rule because it favors tall players over talented ones, but I am cool with it being tested in the NBDL because it at least shows we are willing to look for compromise w/ FIBA rather than expecting it to conform to the NBA.

Well if they change the goaltending rule thank god the Kings drafted Hassan Whiteside and his 7'7 wingspan.

Only reason why Europe can do it is because their players arent athletic enough to significantly change the course of the game with this rule (hey its true).

We have guys like Dwight Howard and Josh Smith who would be taking balls off the rim all day lol.

I do think they do something about goaltending/blocking. The calls are too close now-a-days and blocking brings more excitement to the game. I might they should do it where most of time those calls are BLOCKS not goaltends.

Let's not even talk about that. I'm just gonna be glad Vernon Davis finally did away with his dreads or whatever the hell he had last year.
