    Things that could make the league more even

    Example the league is extremely 3 point heavy which works but it kills the majority of bigs so what options do we have if we even need them to find a middle ground between lets say the 80s/90s and how the league currently is? We have the Jokics/Embiids/AD but a ton of bigs are being wasted because of the 3 point barrage so what if we took away the 3 second violation?


    Would this help or is it a bad idea? What other ideas would be ideal to bring back more inside play not just from centers but 2 point shots that are now frowned upon.

    Get rod of basket interference. Let those bigs tip the ball in while its on the rim.

    I like getting rid of basket interference.

    Make the court a couple feet wider and make the 3pt arc the same distance all the way around to get rid of the short 3.

    Make the travel start at the gather rather than the gather step to make it a little harder for that gather step step three. The rules say the ball has to be out of a players hand BEFORE they move their pivot foot ... just call that and half of those step step 3s go away.

    Make the roster 20 players with 5 2 way players, give teams a better chance to develop young players.

    With the above roster size increase set a maximum number of regular season games each player can play. This would allow the season schedule to stay more compressed like it is this year. Fewer games between games and more 2 game series makes it more interesting while the prescribed games off gives the players something back.

    Add a ref to decrease each refs responsibility in each situation, reduce the distance they have to run, increase the angles of view.

    Somehow get rid of "star treatment" by refs.

    Call the offensive player when they make an artificial move to create contact instead of calling a foul on the defender. A defender jumping not into the offensive player now gets called for a foul if the offensive player jumps into the defenders space because "landing zone".

    Clean up the rules players take advantage of.

    Bring back the one and one FT. Reduce the time players are allowed to shoot FTs (take a few seconds out of each FT and the game gets better).

    Make the half break shorter. The players don't need them that long and it's the worst part of the show.

    Offensive fouls shouldn't result in FTs for the defensive team, just give them the ball out of bounds.

    That NBA was BAD when the hand checking was rampant and Jordan wasn't playing it's why they banned it.

    Ok? Offense has too much to play with. Give the defense teeth again.

    Clean up the travel and screen calls, and stop favoring the offensive player when they create contact and the defense will have a chance again.

    make the 3pter worth 2.5 points. it goes from a 33% 3pt shooter being worth the same as a 50% 2pt shooter to a 50% 2pt shooter being worth a 40% 3pt shooter. that or as someone else suggested get rid of the corner 3 or make it harder.

    Prorate the luxury tax threshold based on a franchise's estimated value. Institute yearly audits of each franchise to estimate their value based on market, results, arena and brand. Essentially, allow small-market teams to spend more without going into the luxury tax.

    That's a new one. Why not change the cap rather than the tax threshold? And maybe base it off of revenue rather than value?

    Teams that earn less get to spend more. Maybe tie in season results too. Win a title and your cap is capped at the level of the median of the playoff team's caps.
