I got this idea after speaking with Kobe Bryant and asking him how he would like to see the NBA changed. He spoke of the current physical culture of the game. Was it something Knicks/Bulls reminiscent he longed for? Yeah, the thought of seeing Mike go fly slow motion baseline powerful on Gotham City just one more time would take me back as well.
Nevertheless, think of the rules that have changed the games we love and the impact stamped on the history of sports because of those changes: Football moving the goal posts 10 yards deeper, Bob Gibson forcing MLB to lower the mound because he was embarrassing hitters like Josh did pitchers or the NBA implementing an ABA three point shot so cats like Dereck Whittenburg could dream 3 big while they still had father figures as coaches. How about the likes of a collegiate Rooney rule so young coaches like Big House Gaines or Eddie Robinson could show their Joe Paterno mettle? Man could you imagine witnessing Peal spin right and left so poetic jazzy and never realizing he just dropped 50?
It’s not complicated because the future beckons. I know it’s Friday, but get creative. You can always come back over the weekend. Have a good one!
