Okay. Serious attempt at a discussion post.

But the NBA went from allowing hard play ~15 years ago (early 2000's- not talking about the extremely hard physical play of the 90's) to now being a soft league where physical contact really isn't allowed.

How will the game itself change 15 years from now? Will it be exactly the same as it is today, or will it change in other ways not yet seen?

I expect scoring to continue to rise. Comparing this season, to a season 15 years ago...

GSW leads the league in scoring this year with 118 ppg
15 years ago, Dallas lead the league in scoring with 105 ppg (that would be good enough for 15th best this year).

More rules will be implemented that favor offense over defense. 15 years from now, 125 point average might be the bench mark for the best offense in the league.

So this whole time you weren't making a serious attempt for a discussion.

Basketball is like politics. No views go without criticism

There will be a 4 point line and everyone will be chucking from half court.

15 years from now anything with in the 3 point line is out of bounds.

Any contact at all will be considered sexual assault and will be automatically called as a flagrant foul

The court will get a few feet wider, the 3 point line will be a continuous arc all the way around, there will be 4 officials, all contact to the head or face on either end will be an automatic flagrant.

I like all but the first one. I don’t think that will happen.

In fact I think in all sports in 15 years we will see a swing back to defensive mentalities.

The 2nd one can't really happen without the first.

Offense and defense always swing back and forth ... defense figures out how to stop the offense, then the rules are changed to improve offense.

They should implement the 4 point line.

If anything inside the 3pt line was out of bounds the dunks would have to be amazing, they’d be jumping from the 3pt line!

There's gonna be way more versatilty amongst players. Being able to play and especially defend multiple positions is going to start becoming necessary

This, plus all stats keepers will be fired and SportVU will track all stats. In addition some calls (like out of bounds) will be made by SportVU, with the on court refs being able to overrule the cameras. Tennis has already been doing this for like a decade.

I thought tennis did it the other way around where the ref makes the call and the computer overrules him?

Same here. Lol I only asked because when I do catch it I think they show the computer review.

It's been a while for me too ... Last I recal Cyclops would show a light when it was out then the official would make the call.
