David Stern cracking down on pregame routines

Quote:
NEW YORK -- The NBA is taking steps to cut down on pregame handshakes and rituals that have become popular with players in recent years. Starting this season, as soon as player introductions are finished, there will be 90 seconds put on the game clock, and teams will be expected to be ready for tipoff after that time.

The guideline will eliminate or severely cut down on the routines that players from most teams go through before games, which often include a series of handshakes with their own teammates before greeting opponents. It also could legislate out individual rituals like LeBron James' famous chalk toss, which he abandoned last season during the playoffs, though James said he'll try to get it done in the limited time.

"I won't change it, I'll be able to work it in," James said. "We'll figure it out."

Re: David Stern cracking down on pregame routines

The faster the pregame routine, the faster the game. The faster the the cleanup crew can come in, pick up all the shit, and the earlier they go home.

That's just a theory.

FOH Dre :gay:

This reminds me of when everyone was up in arms that Stern implemented the dress code and didn't let players sit on the bench in do-rags, XXXXL T shirts and chains anymore.

Re: David Stern cracking down on pregame routines

i don't mind this at all. stuff like the dress code is really stupid. but if this cuts out a lot of unnecessary time between the intros and tip off, not sure how it's a bad thing.

I'm all for policies that take little time to create and at worst accomplish nothing, at best just improve the league and the game.

Re: David Stern cracking down on pregame routines

Good. I'm sick of staying up for a game that is meant to tip off at a certain time, only to have to wait another 20 minutes until I see some actual basketball.

If a game is slated for 7:00pm, then that's the time it should tip off.

Yeh I'm fine with it. They are such a bunch of pretentious bitches. Especially LeBron, who gives a s*hit about his chalk throw

This. I don't care what they do or when they do it, just make sure the game starts at the time it is scheduled.

Re: David Stern cracking down on pregame routines

I don't see the point. It's not like they are doing 10 minute dancing and rap performances before tip off. Stern seems like the most boring person on earth.

Re: David Stern cracking down on pregame routines

Wouldn't it be easier to just move player introductions earlier, so that there was more time between introductions and the scheduled start? Or maybe that would be an awkward silence for teams that don't have extended rituals.
