On Monday I was in Bristol, and in the cafeteria at lunch things got pretty exciting discussing HoopIdea, and ways the NBA should change to make a better, more exciting game.
Tim Duncan is essentially a perfect basketball player. But very few people want to watch him at his best. Would the NBA be smart to address that in some way? To encourage offensive-minded, thrilling plays at the expense of defense and control?
One guy at the table, ESPN.com NBA editor Royce Webb -- the moving force behind HoopIdea and this post -- made a strong case.
On the NBA Today podcast (a day early, just for fun) Royce Webb stops by to explain his vision of the game.
