    Should NBA Change their Rules to adjust for Lebron?

    Watching these Playoff games it has been clear that Lebron is so much more dominant than all of the other players. Should the NBA change there rules to help the other NBA teams out?

    Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't the NBA when Shaq was L.A. cahnge the rules to help out the other NBA teams by allowing teams to play Zone now and might of even widened the lanes.

    Should the NBA change with the Rules some? Get rid of the crab dribble?

    They need to call traveling on him more.

    I don't think refs let them necessarily play the zone more, it was just the only gameplan for such a dominant big man. And he does get away with traveling too much, but no rules should be altered or changed. No crab dribble, no euro step... Good defenders can contain him, but trying to change the rules to stop a guy from being great seems a bit crazy. All you can do is contain him... much like Kobe Bryant.

    Any Star player with a good team will also look good against Pistons and the Hawks.

    Letting him get away with traveling undos the hard work of good defenders time and time again.
    No acting here!

    no. Every star gets away with things. Deal with it

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    Stop sending him to the FT line for breathing on him and start calling more fouls on him

    Most stars get away with things that they at least had a reputation of being able to do before they were a star, as in draw contact and make shots with harder degrees of difficult, or even just being a great defender so they will get the block call instead of a foul for example.

    Traveling is something that is absolutely ridiculous to not be called especially for how often Lebron does it and with the fact he has won playoff games with it.

    no. they must call that crab dribble a violation every time. the rule in basketball says 3 steps without dribble is a violation. lebron should adjust and not the league. im not against lebron he is a great athlete but he should be the one to adjust.

    How is he dominating? He's playing an Atlanta team that doesn't play defense and he just played a disgruntled Pistons team that shouldn't have been in the playoffs. We'll see what he does against the Celtics or Magic.

    The league adjusted to Wilt, MJ, Shaq and probably a few others.

    But Lebron hasn't won anything or set any records so this is premature. He's won 6 playoff games with a very good team as the top seed. That's it.

    And the crab dribble is illegal. Refs are afraid to call Lebron for a lot of stuff becauses he's the league and media's baby. He's not all that dominant. He doesn't play the post and isn't a fantastic shooter. So the only thing you could change is the officiating. There's already a travelling rule and there's already a charge rule, yet somehow Lebron always ends up at the free throw line.
