Rivers joins a panel that includes owners Dan Gilbert (Cleveland Cavaliers) and Joe Lacob (Golden State); general managers Bryan Colangelo (Toronto Raptors), Mitch Kupchak (L.A. Lakers), Kevin O’Connor (Utah Jazz), and Sam Presti (Oklahoma City); and coaches Rick Carlisle (Dallas Mavericks) and Lionel Hollins (Memphis Grizzlies). The NBPA will also designate one of its members to serve on the Committee.
If the Competition Committee votes in favor of changing a playing rule or any other competition-related matter, the recommendation will be brought to the Board of Governors for its consideration and vote. Check out the full release from the league after the jump.
First up on the docket… or at least on the docket… flopping… which has gotten a bit out of control.
Second: maybe some sort of standardization of the league suspension rules. If this:
is worth a flagrant 2 and a 2 game suspension, then shouldn't this:
be worth at least 1 game. Or maybe a fine? It was neither. It was a flagrant 1 and no further punishment, which is ridiculous.
So if the new competition committee can figure out how to balance that out, I'm sure we'd all appreciate it.
Congrats, Doc, for more trouble than you probably need to deal with.
