Spot-on article from the Trib on the Jazz giving up too many free points.
If you foul, then the coach pulls you. Then you dont play. Then you cant make millions. Smart players dont try on defense. Because they might foul. And that means your back up might show you up. But if he fouls he has to come out too, even thought that doesnt make sense, because he doesnt start, and the coach could afford to keep playing him. But the coach still pulls him. Thats why the backup doesnt like to foul either. You never know. We might foul out all 12 guys if we aren't careful.
If you playing good defense, you should commit 2 or 3 fouls a game. But they have to be smart fouls, not stupid ones.....like 25 feet from the basket!
