Why, of course he does! LB imagines a world in which he would have final say in all basketball-related matters: “So if Brown were basketball czar, what would he do? Standardize rules worldwide for the NBA, college and international games. Move the NBA 3-point line in slightly. Permit teams to play any defense they choose without violating some anti-zone rule. Brown believes those changes would both allow and compel teams to run more and shoot more, and that’s what the game needs. ‘If you allow any defense, then (offenses) are going to rush the ball up the court because you’re going to be afraid of zones,’ Brown said.”
