hey fellas,

i had an idea in my minds for a while and i wanted to share it with the congregation. this threads concerns the CBA or collective barganing agreements that will be coming as well as some rules changes i am proposing

Ok

i have some ideas, some illogical to some others finda logicals:

Regarding Technical fouls:

-Technical fouls that are awarded to a player after arguing with a referee should not results in the opposing teams shooting freethrows. any technical foul regarding a player vs a referee should be just considered a technical foul, nothing more.

two technicals per game results in an ejection

-Any technical between a player vs a player results in either:

1 player shooting free throws



i.x if two players involve in a slugging or pushing match in the low box, both are awarded technical fouls, and no-one shoots

if one player pushes another, the players that didnt do anything is awarded a free throw

-Any player vs player technical fouls results as also a personal foul

this will decrease the number of technicals a player assumes throughout the season, as any technical in game resulters in a personal foul, as long as it is between two players

-technicals between coaches and players: the player shoots the free throw

-technical fouls between a coach and a referee results in 1 techincal and no free throws

the reason being is that a referee shouldnt have an impact on a game, he is not a player, he shldnt be allowed to influence the game in terms of points

-every 12 technicals results in a suspension

-all technical fouls result in a $50,000 fine, the money will not be collected by the league but destributed to chariot-able works, such as cancer facilities, homless shelters, etc

Fines:

-any fines given by a team or the leagues results in the money being donated to a chariot-able foundation as befur mentioned

Regarding greens week:

instead of having one weeks devoted to wearing green jerseys, make all jerseys out of recycleabels materials, and asbestos

in order to take a stand against the peoples who are against being greens and eating them as well

Game changes:

-both coaches are awarded 1 challenge per halfs, only to be used in the last 2 minutes of a game, any questionable call, non foul related, such as the issue with the nuggets and thunders, a coach will be able to challenge the call

or any out of bounds play in which the ball is touched

it may slow down the play but it is necessary to help the intergritism of the league

Contracts:

all rookie draft pick contracts are fully garenteed incept in certain situations:

i.x if a player is drafted and has missed a total of 120 games in their first 3 years due ONLY TOS INJURY, the teams is allowed to release the player, and will only have to pay the player for the remainingder of the contract for that year

so if a player has a 4 yr deal, and gets injured and misses 120 games between 2 year, he can be released and only be payed for two year

MLEs

MLEs continue as they are, but the hard caps is limited to only 15-20 millions

Franshice tag:

awarded to a player after being in the league for 6 years and atleast 3 years with the same team, the team may franchize him once for the average of the top 5 players at that position plus a 5% increase on top of that

that player may only be franchiized once, and the money would be taken from the hard caps

All trade/freeagency decisions must be approved by the league after throughts review to check for tampering, creations of super teams, and trades that are too lopsided

and any leaks reguarding trades(such as comega anthonys was) will result in a $50,000 fine of the team(s) involve

All teams are given a farm system, aka a d-leagues team in order to store players who have been in the league form a period of 1-4 years, so if an injured player comes back from injury, they can be sent to the d-league after to practice and brought back to the NBA franchice, simulars to base and balls

AAA, AA, A teams, for the farm system, each team consisting of 12 player each, these teams are funded by the Franchice, but are protected under the cba encase of an lockout, so we can still see the balls

NBA drafts is expanded to 2 rounds, includes highschool seniors, who must completes h.s before entering the nbas, but cannot play in the nba unless they have played atleast one year at the d-league level( for instance, players who is toos stupid to be goods in college, so they come to d-league, play, no study or nothing, come to nba nxt year, and is paid for the season)

International Draft: 2 round, 40 player draft of internationals players in which incomming internationals, racials, radicals, and bi-radicals can be drafted into the nba, still plays for their internationals or regionals team, or decide to join the d-league

each team is given 2 picks, 1 in the 1st and one in the second, equaling 35, and the 5 worst teams in the nba get 5 more picks at the end of round 1

HOFFA: hall of fame board expandeds to includes 5 current nba players( with 10 years experience minimum, ex, kurt thomas, shaq, kobe duncan, etcs) and 5 retired nba HOFFAS(barnkleys, pippens, etcs) each wld get 1 vote in the HOFFA process

ALL Star weekends: all fan voting dissalowed for all star starters, so players like YAO MING dont get in after playing 15 game, players like TMAK dong get 1 million votes after 2 game, and Allen iverson dont get in after 20 game averagin 14 ppg starting over Ronder and Rose

players all vote for a player not on their team, and coaches vote for all plaers on team that shld be starters, the press votes for the same

from that point, they all vote again for the reserves until the roster reaches 10, the last 2 players for each team are voted on by the fans from a pool of ELEGIBLE CANDIDATES THAT HAVE PLAYED THE MAJORITY FOR THE THE SEASON AT THAT POINTS

in order to prevent this HOFFA padding process in which undesrving athletes are voted in by fans just because of their nationality, which helps the player get into the HOFFA

fans may vote for allstar mvp, dunk contest, rookie mvp, d-league mvp

2 on 2 pick up game for all star weekends:

featuring two back court players from teams in which had no all stars

1 prop per dunk contest to be completed in the 2nd round, no cars allowed, other props are acceptable

NO fan voting for the mvps, as of last season the fan get about 1 vote for the mvp, which is ridicolous, because they probably all voted for yao ming or tmac

Players get to vote for mvp and their vote counts for a small percentage, maybe 10 percent-20 percent, the rest is medias, and analysts, as well as HOFFAS

Yearly drug tests for all players randomly, financhial advisors for all players so we dont end ups having antonio cromatires, antione walkers and such

no taking points off the board after shot clock erroers, the bulls vs the pacers, korver hit a 3 point hsot, the ball was released after the buzzer, 2-3 mins later, the points were erased. if you miss it then, then dont change it. you shld change the 2 to 3 but not the 3 to 0 u know?

homesetual conseling so that more player may feel frees to come out, and be guided by mentors

all young players must have a mentor(that means u lancer stevension)

im a fans of parity, but not too much parity like footballs in which every year atleast 20 teams have chance

i wld like 10 teams with chance, while all the other teams still are able to develop through the 2 draft systems and the franchice tags additions

its kind of annoy-ying to see team like cardinal and seahawk and other bad teams make it to the final, nxt year, they dont

i wld dlike to see some dynasty, it create greate rivalry such as lakers vs celtics, spurs vs suns, king vs lakers

etc

No matter what **** they come up with basket is as it is and big markets will Always be there.

Excetp of course that free market was allowed.

since ALL the owners are millionaires being able to offer HOW much they wanted for how many years they wanted would keep the parity.

I mean, Cavs under the rules could pay a BIT more than other teams.
That didnt cut it to retain him in a poor market.

If cavs could ahve paid wichever they wanted, and had paid him the DOUBLE of his salary and then be able to BUY whoever they wanted to pair wiht him paying for it he very well could ahve decided to stay.

Rich team wants player, rich team pays an ASTRONOMIC sum to poor team poor team then has a TON of money to buy other players to replace that player.

coaches should have to take free throws if they get a tech. A miss means the other team gets a point. A make means nobody gets a point. Now the coach can't talk **** about their big men for sucking at free throws.

the tags make you an SLAVE highly paid but slave after all.
Im nto even sure why would Supreme Court allow them to happen.

Thats one of the problems stern has to expand nba to europe.

Europan Courts wouldnt allow

1 Salary cap
2 max and Min value for the contracts ( well minimum would never be under the minimum for any general worker)
3 draft ( as in you dont choose where you live and work)
4 Restricted Fa ( there used to be that mathching offers thing in soccer and the european court made it stop)
5 Player for Player trade withouth the CONSENT of the players.

and many other things.

sep11ie
04-26-2011, 10:54 PM
And players that can't dunk, like the Chunk Hayez's and Louis Skolas, should have some kind of spring in their shoes so they can get that extra hop. Also put a bomb inside the ball that blows up if the shot clock expires and the player still has the ball. Maybe make the ball out of Kangroo skin instead of leather, since kangroos have way better hops than most cows.

the funny thing is

1 it wouldnt happen, players have too much pride to score 10 ppg each.
more than 3 is a real trouble.

2 if that happens, someone of Hayes, Collison and etc wodl be making 25 ppg and being called a star. while som of the players in teh superteam woujdl eg considered now "role players"

Kids join their local teams from a very young age, at the YOUTH ACADEMIES(ie 'basketball/any sport farms') and the older they get, the better level they get to play. eg a 17 year old can be promoted to the U20 team since he's too good for the U18 team. He might even make it to the senior team.

If we had a draft in Europe:
a) it'd be abolished before the inception of the idea
b) people would sue everyone all the time
c) people would laugh their ***** off seriously...

There's both offensive and defensive 3 second rules. Actually I think it's a 5 second rule in defense which is usually never called anyway while it's a much stricter offensive 3 second. That gets called a lot when players are carried away.
It's just that zone defenses are allowed in Europe and it seems like the C is camping under the basket but it's not really the case.

FREE MARKEt


AND to hell with the rest.

The Free market system won't work for the NBA.

The NBA has already has problems turning a profit. 2 consecutive years of negative growth is not good for the league as a whole.

The Free Market will allow the richest entity to pay the most money and therefore buy up all of the best players. The price per player will rise as people with large amounts of money will overspend for the deluxe talent.

This over spending will raise the avg. salary as a whole.

The NBA makes money when franchises make money, they take somethin off the top when you turn a profit.

The equilibrium within a free market is inefficient, the NBA will in fact lose more money as billionaires spend tons of money trying to win a championship instead of seeking maximum profits.

In my economics class we actually studied this exact problem in sports...

the point of a salary cap and luxury tax is to reduce spending, which means larger profit margins.

The Free market system won't work for the NBA.

The NBA has already has problems turning a profit. 2 consecutive years of negative growth is not good for the league as a whole.

The Free Market will allow the richest entity to pay the most money and therefore buy up all of the best players. The price per player will rise as people with large amounts of money will overspend for the deluxe talent.

This over spending will raise the avg. salary as a whole.

The NBA makes money when franchises make money, they take somethin off the top when you turn a profit.

The equilibrium within a free market is inefficient, the NBA will in fact lose more money as billionaires spend tons of money trying to win a championship instead of seeking maximum profits.

In my economics class we actually studied this exact problem in sports...

the point of a salary cap and luxury tax is to reduce spending, which means larger profit margins.

On the contrary , this would save bad teams.

Bucks are not making enough money for example but knicks are making a TON of money.
Knicks PAY 60 million dollars for Jennings to the bucks.

Bucks make money.

Easy as that.
