View Full Version : New rules to speed up and increase scoring
1)Speed up the shot clock change it from a 24 second shot clock to a 16 second shot clock.
2) Start calling three seconds in the key. It almost never gets called.
3) Change the five second rule to three seconds to make a move to the basket.
Hopefully teams will stop the two man game and scoring will increase instead of going down.
A 16 second shot clock is would be absurd in the NBA

4) Draft players that can score. The Mavericks have no trouble scoring AND winning.

lower the hoop 2 feet, and widen the hoop's diameter a foot. i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif
How about scoring baskets on a waited basis according to how much time is left on the clock. >=16 seconds 3's count 4 and 2's count 3 >16seconds >=8 seconds baskets count as normal >8 seconds 3's count as 2 and 2's count as 1.
Of cource the Mavs wouldn't have to change they're playing style at all to take advatange of this. i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif

half court shots will count as 10 wont they?
the mavs and maybe one other team could easily survive with that 18 sec. shotclock considering their run.n.gun offense

Get rid of the 3 point shot. Then teams will work for a good 2 point shot, fg% and ft's attempted will go up...
