New Pre-Game 90 Second Rule

Sometimes I just don’t get what the NBA is thinking.  There is a new 90-second pre-game rule, which gives players 90 seconds to return to the court after introductions.  The NBA says it’s to speed up the games.  They are going to ignore all of the fouls that could be no-calls resulting in free throws that slow down the game.  They’re also going to ignore how long it takes for free throws to be taken.  Can’t do away with TV times outs either.  So now we’ll miss out on awesome pre-game rituals like this

and this

Why is this a problem?  Especially the Ellis/Maggette dance.  I’d watch an entire half hour of that.

  1. Ugh!!! I can’t stand pregame rituals especially the dancing and hand slapping. Just play the game because that’s what I’m there to watch not the latest handshake. If you need more then 90 seconds to show it off then something’s wrong.
