The NBA is at it again. And by at it again, I mean inputting unnecessary, completely bogus rules.
The NBA announced today that they will be having the players cut down on pre game handshakes, rituals, and basically anything that could be seen as fun. Being put in place for the first time in NBA history starting this season, as soon as player introductions are finished, there will be 90 seconds put on the game clock, and by the end of that time teams will be expected to be on the court and ready for tipoff. If the both teams are not on the court at that time, or will be faced with a delay-of-game warning. [Input scared face here]
So, yeah. Your National Basketball Association, ladies and gentlemen.
I personally don’t like it. Every player in this league has routines they do with their teammates, rituals they do before the game and before they walk on the floor. The fans enjoy it.
But hey, no biggie right?
