Has basketball sold it's soul
Just wondering if the wider basketball community could give me your opinions to assist with a thesis I am writing.
Towards the end of 2010 FIBA are implementing new rules to bring the world in line with the NBA.
These rules include the 6.75m 3-point line, no-charge zone, backcourt rules etc.
Is this NBA ism by FIBA to attract more publicity to the sport or has the governing body bowed to the power of the American dollar.
What are your thoughts, good or bad?
