NBL Records with change to 40 Minute Games
While I am a huge supporter of the 40 minute format being adopted by the NBL this season, someone told me while i was on a flying visit to Perth last week that the NBL is not making any effort to re-establish records etc for the 2009/10 season based on the 40 minute format.
So it appears that league records for rebounding, scoring etc etc which were earned in 48 minute affairs will not be in any way recalibrated to cope with the 40 minute format.
While i don't know technically how they would do it, it seems to me BA must reset the boundaries. There is no little or no chance of a player in a 40 minute game setting new all time records, or teams for that matter.
Has anyone seen any discussion on this?
(and please don't let this sink into a discussion about how 48 minute games would be more exciting because people would score more and that would attract more people.... its been done to death)
