Hopefully on purpose, though I guess if they thought it was a trick question then anything is possible.

when you can get from midcourt to the basket and dunk without travelling,

when palming the ball is now considered dribbling and not a violation,

and when 80-90 % of the shots are either less than 2 feet or 3 point attempts.

Finally, if only two teams (at most 3 or 4) have a chance to make the finals, is an 82 game season really necessary to determine who comes in 13th, 14th, 15th and 16th?

PS: What about the one and done NCAA minor league of professional hoops? Are those players required to take freshman English, attend any classes at all, or take any exams? I sincerely doubt it.

I agree with all of your points, Frank.

I would start watching the NBA again if they eliminated the three point shot. It never made sense to me to clear the ball out for a 23 foot jumper after an offensive rebound. If anything, I would favor having the first free throw be worth one point and if it is made the second would be worth two. If the first is missed then the second would be worth only one...

Honestly, the WWE is less predictable than the NBA is.
