The NBA Formed a New Competition Committee


The League sent out a press release, announcing who’s on the new competition committee: “Previously, the Committee included the general manager from each of the 30 teams. That Committee has been reconstituted as the new General Managers Committee. [...] The members of the new Competition Committee are owners Dan Gilbert (Cleveland Cavaliers) and Joe Lacob (Golden State); general managers Bryan Colangelo (Toronto Raptors), Mitch Kupchak (L.A. Lakers), Kevin O’Connor (Utah Jazz), and Sam Presti (Oklahoma City); and coaches Rick Carlisle (Dallas Mavericks), Lionel Hollins (Memphis Grizzlies), and Doc Rivers (Boston Celtics). The NBPA will designate one of its members to serve on the Committee. As is the case currently, if the Competition Committee votes in favor of changing a playing rule or any other competition-related matter, the recommendation will be brought to the Board of Governors for its consideration and vote. The Committee will meet on a regular basis and its first meeting will take place during the Finals. The new General Managers Committee will meet annually to discuss the state of the game and various competition matters.”

    So we’ll know who to blame if they don’t do something about the flops.
    I’d also like a rule that doesn’t allow calling a timeout when the player with possession is on the ground. Can’t see how that’s different from when they used to call it falling/jumping out of bounds.

    This. The Rockets Knicks Finals series was the best in my memory.
