I'll play commissioner


Non-Kings related. These are rules that I’ll change if I am the NBA commissioner:

1. Abolish the No-foul zone

I never liked this rule. A defensive foul is a defensive foul anywhere. An offensive foul is an offensive foul anywhere. We see a lot of miss calls because the ref has to see if the feet was set, was the player in position before contact, was he stepping on the zone, did the offensive player initiated contact, did the offensive player lower he’s shoulder, was the defensive player standing straight and not using he’s hands, all in split seconds. Simplify the rule so that we’ll get more consistency.

2. Add a referee or group of referee just for reviewing replays.

I like how the league is trying to make the right call but this thing takes longer than free-throws. Have another group in there to review the disputed play and then correct it on the next dead ball.

3. A division leader doesn’t guarantee a playoff position

I heard this from Kenny Smith. Division leaders should just be guaranteed a playoff berth, not a playoff position. This ensures we will have the best team in the Western Conference Finals.

4. Bring back the first round of the playoffs to best of 5

We cannot guarantee a star players health during the Finals but this certainly helps. I’m sure the league will lose some dollars during the first round but if stars are playing in the Finals, I’m sure it will more than offset it.

5. You can’t relocate unless proven that you have absolutely exhausted all possible option in keeping the team in current city

This is kinda in the rules already but if it were in writing it could resolve issues like these faster.
