    Correct. 2001-02.

    You see them a lot now. Frankly, I find it appalling that the NBA disallowed zone defense but somehow permitted the appallingly boring Triangle Offense. I'm typically not one for outlawing a strategy, but if there is anything in any sport that just needs to be banned and all infractions hit with severe penalties anywhere from being locked in a room full of hungry crocodiles to removing body parts with carpentry tools, it's fucking Triangle Offense...

    And they replaced it with a 3 second rule. I think his point stands. All the major sports tinker with their rules.

    Everybody's different. I personally have no problem with the length of baseball games. I expect them to be slow and torturous and take up my whole evening.

    My approval of the 3 batter rule has a lot to do with one man - Joe Freaking Maddon. In all my time of watching baseball, the most painful, depressing moments were watching him make 3 trips to the mound in an inning.

    This is a defensive three second rule.

    Ah, thanks. I had thought they always had that, both offense and defense (although if you only allow man-to-man defense, there would be no reason for it, I suppose, as there would be no way you could then get to the paint without being on anyone.).

    I had suggested this a while back. I would much prefer a HR derby format in extra innings instead of the man on second base rule.

    This team would lose more than they would win in that format

    The 3 second rule has been around for a long, long time (since the 1930’s) and was put in for player safety to keep the game from getting too physical.

    Now the shot clock, that was added to stop Bob Cousy...

    The 3 second rule introduced to replace the rule against zone defense in 2001-2002 was a new one, I believe.

    The NBA just needs to allow zone defenses and ban triangle offenses...

    NBA needs to allow players to actually play defense. The game is too ticky tack now.
