Under the new rules, teams will be limited to two timeouts in the last three minutes of the game. NBA fans have been frustrated by the length of time it takes to finish a game. With fewer timeouts to stop the action, teams can go back and forth instead of playing, resetting, playing and then resetting again. Game lengths will shorten, and the NBA will have a better product.
I like the new timeout rules that will be implemented in the NBA this upcoming season. Good joob Adam Silver.
NBA will also assess a delay of game penalty to players who go beyond the three-point line after their first attempt, and teams who are not ready to play after the 15-minute halftime break. The NBA is making strides in improving the flow of the game, and their effort really shows with these rule changes.
Reading the new NBA timeout rules is the most turned-on I've been all year
It's great the NBA is reducing the number of timeouts each team gets, but if coaches want a stoppage, they are still just going to foul to disrupt the flow of the game. They may have patched up one part of the problem, but the intentional foul issue is still hemorrhaging the game of entertainment. Solve that, Adam Silver.
Now you will see more fouls. I don't like this rule at all. Now their messing with the game itself
Taking away one timeout may also prevent some teams from putting themselves in the best position to win a game with a crucial timeout to set up a play or a defense. Depriving teams of a chance to play their best is not a good plan to improve the league.
I hate commercials just as much as the next person, but ppl will be bitchin next yr when their team is down and coulda used that 3rd TO
