    Remove free throws from the game.

    I just had this idea about removing free throws from the game. IIIII thought it was a pretty good idea...

    If a ref calls a foul, continue the game and have judges determine whether or not it was a foul. If it was, add the two or three points (or one if they made the basket.) If it wasn't a foul then don't add any points but also take the foul off the player it was called on.

    A coach or player can argue a no call but they'd only have a limited number of times they can argue. Just to keep the players honest and add a level of strategicness. Say you have 5 times you can argue a no call, you'd want to make sure you're honest so you don't miss out on any possible points.

    This would make flopping pointless, correct refs on bad calls/no calls, and most importantly, it would make the game more fair.

    The judges thing isn't a bad idea. There's obviously a million reasons why this wouldn't work. Like, a guy goes up for a shot, gets fouled, misses, then a guy on his team grabs the offensive rebound and dunks it for 2 Pts. That 2 Pts doesn't count because of the foul, then later the foul is waved off by the judges and the team that got "fouled" is screwed.

    The new trend in the league would be the anti flop. This is where you make it look like you fouled a guy, thus ending the possession, but upon further review the judges would see that you didn't actually foul the guy.

    It would be bizarro world.

    lol I didn't think about that. Maybe throwing the ball in after a foul is called would suffice. But I could see how that anti flop would make things weird.

    Before the throw in there would have to be a short time where players could quickly switch out. I just thought about how the free throw time is used to rotate players.

    Somebody come up with some rule that penalizes anti-anti-flops .. so only geniuses like Franklin can determine the outcome of a game. (Hint: He's a Jazz fan)
    Fortune and glory, kid. Fortune and glory.

    Actually the anti flop would be pretty pointless if the player "fouled" throws it in. If the refs caught on they could just call it a delay of game.

    And even have charges be quickly reviewed to see who gets possession.

    free throws slow the pace of the game. it's bad for the fans. it's good for the players. I already hate the amount of timeouts both teams are allowed. and without the free throws they will have more of those. also, not every player is as good as the other at hitting the open jumpers so giving the points sounds like an unfair idea. but correcting the ref calls by the word of the judges is a good idea, it must be done more often. and while at it, any flopper - I mean any YES even my native Ömer Aşık- must be exterminated mercilessly in front of the crowd. I hate floppers.

    Freethrows only lead to trouble--
    Virtue lies in the struggle, not in the prize.
