NBA Adds New “Reggie Miller Rule”
Over the summer the NBA has implimented a few new rules into their rulebooks to help better the game and experience for NBA fans out there. One of the major issues that drew up a lot of concern were the high numbers of players in the league flopping. Players like LeBron James, Manu Ginóbili, and several others.
The newest rule added is being called the "Reggie Miller rule", which cracks down on players who purposely extend their foot while taking a jumpshot in attempt to create space between them and the defender, and to also attempt to receive an offensive foul. From the Boston Globe's Gary Washburn:
Out of all the new rules implemented by the NBA, I would say the "Reggie Miller rule" and the anti-flopping rule are two of my favorite rules. The "Reggie Miller rule" would only call for an offensive foul be given to the player guilty of kicking out their leg to initiat contact, while the anti-flopping rule's penalty would be given by NBA officials after each flopping case has been reviewed and investigated by the league.
According to NBA.com, the anti-flopping would be enforced as follows:
Some people might disagree with some of the new rules. They would say its making the game slower or worser, but unless you've actually played organized basketball, not at your local gym or local park, then you will understand. I've played organized basketball during my high school days and I've had to defend a shooter who would always kick out his leg everytime he shoots. It did become very annoying. Especially if it makes contact with your crown jewels!
