For no apparent reason whatsoever I would just have to change the official NBA ball that has done no harm for over 30 years to make it composite textured..

And then resign because of a failed attempt to make stupid useless petty changes that dont benefit anyone.

First of all I'd shorten 2 things.

1) The shot clock. 20 seconds instead of 24. Players are a lot faster now 20 sec should be enough. 8 seconds for taking it through the backcourt is enough (or should be).

2) The season. 58 games. Play each team 2 times. That's it.

3) I'd get rid of the defensive 3 second rule.

4) I'd get rid of the circle (protected area)

5) I'd allow handchecking.

6) I'd get rid of guaranteed contracts and with that the salary cap, too.

7) I'd get rid of Mike Tirico and Tim Legler ASAP.

Ditto with the hand checking. I'd also get rid of some of the downright stupid reasons for techs (such as laughing, or yelling after a big dunk). At times it's a bigger joke than the Eurovision song contest

I saw the Polish singers try to be gangsters/Fergie/Eminem/whoever and slashed my wrists. Well, I didn't slash my wrists. But I did change the channel

Backcourt already is 8 seconds.

Good. Then make the shot-clock expire at 20. It's more than enough.

Get rid of college and make youth teams. Players sign with their teams after they graduate or if they want to drop out they may. They have youth teams from age 16 and on...This creates better development of players for the team and by the time they need them they will already be ready to go (hopefully). This makes more sense than college.

Create a two-tier leagues. The bottom league for the worser teams and the top league for better teams. Bottom three of top are relegated and top 3 of the bottom are promoted.

Also, I would just like to say that the 1-year college rule blows. People have a right-to-train.

I would disallow ticky-tack fouls. All that stop and go in the games just drives me nuts.

Default Re: If You Were Commissioner...

merit pay for predetermined stats for each individual player:

example,
for ray allen as the sonic scorer merit pay for shooting percentage/ppg
for wilcox: rebounds
for collison, hustle stats

we could set some goals at the beginning of the season. team gets a refund if the goals arent met

also, i like the idea of team-oriented bonuses for wins/playoffs/championship; can divide it up by percentage as to "importance to the team". some examples:

ray 25%
wilcox 15%
collison 10%
mike wilks 3%

Are there any leagues in any sport that have (a) tried this and (b) been successful?
