Should NBL bring back 48m games?
NBL use to play 48m matches since the beginning in 1979 NBL season to 2008-09 NBL season. NBL from now has been playing just 40m with Fiba rules.
The only reason why I think NBL changed to 40m games was because the games couldn't fit the time frame of the TV schedules. Also, NBL wanted to have Fiba rules to translate to the national team events.
I think personally NBL should go back to 48m games because Fiba rules is boring and usually most games are low scoring. As a member it’s not good to see low scoring games.
Should NBL consider bringing back 48m era?
