Yao was a good free throw shooter and he was officiated horribly.

JBKB is either a really great troll or a delusional, out of touch shit whiner.

This is a scenario where we can't help but scare away the new guy.

I approve of The Big Dipper, though.

Shaq and Dwight can apply huge force on you, but you can't on them. Until the league understands basic physics, the big men will always be at an advantage.

Most big men are horrible at basketball (Shaq, Dwight, etc), but they are able to thrive because the league has so many rules that allow them to be dominant.

Thank GOD for the defensive 3-second illegal defense. Now, if only the referees can wear thicker glasses and actually see when the rule is violated.
So does that mean players should be allowed to hold guys like Tony Parker and Russell Westbrook because they are too fast and they can't keep up?

Oh and as far as big men are horrible at basketball, where exactly do you get that from? Do you consider basketball just fancy dribbling and jumpshots? In fact I'd venture to say that a lot of big men are far better basketball players then some of the more heralded wing players.

Ya, not sure if this guy is trolling or if he is just on some crazy crack binge. But if he is serious, and if he thinks Bigs are only in the NBA because of their size and not because of talent, then I seriously don't think he has ever watched a single game of basketball ever.

Hakeem Olajuwon - Some of the best foot work in the History of the NBA, amazing speed, IQ and a steals machine

Griffin - Great handles and one of the most athletic players in the game

Howard - Crazy athletic

Bill Walton - Very high basketball IQ

David Robinson - great mid range game, along with amazing athletic abilities

Moses Malone - Absolute beast, great IQ

Shaq - Athletic, great speed (in his prime)

Bill Russell - Best Defensive player, amazing Defensive and Rebounding IQ

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar - unstoppable offensive game, most skilled offensive big EVER!

there are many more great bigs, but according to OP they all suck. Get your head out of your ass. Watch a couple games of basketball before you post.

And instead of asking about a so called "new rule" (which has been around for years) do some research so you don't look/sound like a complete moron.

ps. you're dumb

Has the league been proposing this rule for many years and it's finally here, or did Stern just wake up out of bed and say "Hey, I should make a new two-minute rule." Why is this rule important this season, but not ten or fifteen seasons ago?

he probably also thinks that Linebackers are horrible at football since they dont throw touchdowns

In his defense, if linebackers mattered touchdowns wouldn't exist.
