NBA Twitter Rips G-League’s New Free Throw Rule Experiment

 

The NBA G League will be experimenting with a new free throw rule, that might change the game a lot this season.

From now on, all trips to the free throw line will include only a single foul shot. This shot will then be worth one, two or three points depending on the nature of the foul leading to the attempt.

In the final two minutes of the fourth quarter and overtime periods, the foul shot format will revert to the traditional model.

The reasoning behind the experiment is to improve the pace of play. But this would definitely indirectly invoke teams to use the hack-a-bad-freethrowshooter tactic and therefore harming the pace of play more, which would be counterproductive to the whole rule change. This, by far will not be the only problem with this. NBA Twitter more than agrees and went to work.
