A modest proposal concerning "intentional fouling" in the NBA.
I mean come on -- it flies in the face of everything we ever learned about good sportsmanship and the function of penalties. But rules are written by we mere mortals and I believe this change would be cheered by everyone who loves basketball.
An intentional foul gets the person/team fouled two shots (AND maybe the fouled team can choose which player takes the shots) AND possession of the ball. I think that would stop this unworthy practice along with the clock.

Wild Card Weekend's Winning Quarterbacks
Raiders Tom Flores -- 2019 Pro Football Hall of Fame finalist
Tom Flores is named as one of the 2019 Pro Football Hall of Fame finalists. A pioneer player and coach, Flores was a charter quarterback for the newly minted AFL in 1960. He was also the first-ever Hispanic starting quarterback in pro football and the first quarterback for the Oakland Raiders. Flores is a two time winning Super Bowl head coach (XV and XVIII) and is only one of two, along with Mike Ditka, to have won the Super Bowl as a player, assistant coach and head coach. He was also the first minority coach to win the Super Bowl. He is second in wins as a Raiders head coach behind John Madden. From 1997 to 2018, Flores was the color commentator alongside Greg Papa on the Raiders' radio broadcasts. The newly inducted HOF members will be selected in Atlanta on Saturday February 2 the day before Super Bowl LIII.

Get the ball to Steph.
As the fourth quarter began I saw the ledge come into sight, and my heart stopped. The narrow trail that led to that terrible place, that awful limbo zone between victory and defeat, the end of the line, the final frontier of fan fear, was uncharacteristically well-lit, illuminated by an astounding 41 three-pointers, an NBA record set by two Northern California teams that were going at it hard on Saturday night.
As I approached that dangerous spot, I snuck a peek over the edge, and saw the ghost of the
40-year abyss that I never want to see again, the eighth circle of basketball hell that I thought was behind me. On the heels of the Houston home court overtime debacle, a sickening loss of the first magnitude, if this one in Sacramento slipped away, well, I might have time to break out the strait jacket.
There are moments in a long season when one lone play can have an impact so profound, that if the season does not end with a parade, one can harken back to that play. That moment took place Thursday night. Lost in the ignominy of blowing a 20-point lead and the miraculous winning fade-away three by James Harden was perhaps Kevin Durant's worst sequence as a Golden State Warrior.
With 1:10 left in regulation and his team up by six, 119-113, KD, with 15 seconds remaining on the shot clock, inexplicably launched a 28-footer and missed badly. Compounding this egregious mistake, Durant jogged while Clint Capela hustled down court to receive a pass, only to get fouled by Durant and convert the free throw. What should have been a lock was now a game again, and Harden took advantage with his first super-clutch three, sending it into overtime. We know the rest. It was a bad feeling, and it would take a stirring win--preferably in the next game--to make that sickening feeling go away. I must have replayed that ending ten times in my head in the middle of the night.
Saturday night was heart-stopping. After an incredible offensive display by the veteran Warriors and the young Kings, I noticed that the vaunted Golden State lockdown defense, conspicuously in absentia the first three quarters, had somehow snuck back into the arena, along with another crafty character, one who is very familiar to Warrior fans--the
It took all 20 of his four
period points to get the job done: step-back threes, wide-open threes, contested threes, circus drives, crazy drives, and-ones, and free throws. And in the end he single-handedly rescued me from the ledge. It's been the same now for five years. When the team needs him, he steps up, gets that steely look in his soft eyes, and makes up his mind he will not let his team lose.
The Kings were making everything until the final period, when they only scored 20, thanks to a collective defensive effort by the champs. Sure, Dray, Klay and Andre were key. Buddy Hield, who had been unconscious for three periods, took one shot that final quarter, with 20 seconds left--and it was blocked. But a closer look at the tape reveals that the Dubs' best defender down the stretch was the shortest Warrior on the floor.
Because when things are looking bleak, desperate and downright scary, and I find myself gripping big-time, asking if
this is the end of
there is only one guy that can talk me off that ledge--number 30, the baby-faced assassin, he of the ten three-pointers and 42 points--
Appreciate his greatness, for it will never come again. By the way, he's a pretty cool guy; flashy but modest; heroic but humble; and raised right by Dell and Sonia. And he's our guy.
Get the ball to Steph.

From 2000-2005 I wrote a column for the late great Oakland Athletics Fan Coalition (OAFC) entitled
a play on the fact that I'm a musician. Some of you may remember the OAFC, an East Bay organization that at its peak had several thousand members devoted to keeping the A's in Oakland and guess what? They've succeeded. Perhaps one or two of you might remember my articles (more like rants) about baseball and society.
