    it's funny because they're not actually "new rules" really, right? most of it is just properly calling old rules. one of the worst things that happened to basketball was the glorification of the stationary taken charge (or, the battier). on one hand, i get it: reward great defensive positioning! but the problem is that the rules never stated you needed that level of positioning (stationary, shoulders perfectly squared)--you needed legal guarding position.

    https://official.nba.com/the-nba-rule-authority/

    back peddling, sliding at backward angle, and even sliding at a sideways angle can all be legal guarding position if you get to the spot first.

    and running alongside a defender and lurching into them has always been a clear offensive foul that just stopped being one cuz harden.

    That kind of play makes me fume—like that Steph example. I’m still skeptical of all this, but we’ll see.

    Just thought about something: Chaundee Brown might be the future small forward of the Los Angeles Lakers. This could happen as soon as this season. He hasn't played a single second yet, but we will see what happens.

    All I care about is whether she can coach. Never heard of her, but I would expect she can. I wonder what her specific role on the staff is going to be?

    Assistant coaches are as valuable as team doctors.

    Now, I’m back to loving Byron, the only ex-Laker I don’t like is Kupcrap, for the malicious signings of Dung/Moscrap

    i think kupchak was backed into a corner. it was clear that no good FAs would sign with us, and it wasn't in our best interest to be absolutely terrible forever. so he sort of operated like a non-glamor franchise. and i think the spirit was correct (let's pick realistic targets and get them), but the execution (let's overpay dramatically in terms of both years and salary to do so) was just terrible.

    had he given those two two-year contracts at that salary? ok. 4 year contracts at half the salary? also fine.

    remember: tons of awful contracts were handed out that summer all across the league.

    oh it killed us. tbh, deng's stretch money probably cost us the eagle. my point is that i don't think he had a lot of great options. and yes he failed even given that, but i just don't think that much about it now. maybe because since that happened, we had the absolute roster bungle the summer lebron signed. felt like we had a clear opportunity to field a better roster, and magic was drunk. wasted a lebron year for no reason. mozdeng wasted nothing back then. we were going to be bad pretty much no matter what. i think that's why.

    but stretching deng instead of just eating his salary and using him in trade also bothers me, and that was something the current regime did, right?

    A lot of zebras been calling it this way for years already. If you're in a defensive position and you have position and the offensive player blows through your real estate they get called for a charge in most cases unless you're a star and then it's automatic trips to the charity stripe
