When up 3 on defense with under 10 seconds?
I guess it makes to much sense to do that
Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
cuz its a pvssy move and everyone would hate you for doing it.
But, really too much could go wrong if a player starts to shoot and they call it a shooting foul then he's got 3 free throws to tie the game. I think they would rather play it out than put it in the refs hands like that.
Coach Cal has asked himself that question for years!
Wrong - no one would give a sh.t if you win.
that was more my opinion. and the second part was probably fairly true.
If Memphis fouls in 08 they get Championship yanked instead of a Final Four appearance.
You had just better hope they don't fake the process of taking a 3 and the ref gives it to them. It is a risk, but I would rather give them the chance of chucking a contested three than possibly fouling during the shot motion.
If they count fell within the first second of an inbound, than don't do it, too risky.
thats exactly my opinion. Play good defense and hope for a miss instead of putting it in some dipshit refs hands.
I would rather take my chances with a 40% 3pt shooter, than a 80%+ FT shooter 3 times. It is pretty easy to or fake a shooting motion.
Most coaches lack common sense.
Basketball would be more entertaining if the players carried weapons
I think fouling is the right move. Obviously, situations differ so if there were under 3 seconds and the opponent was going to be catching and shooting immediately, don't foul. If some guy has the ball and is nowhere near shooting range or is not close to set to shoot yet, foul him. If your players aren't retarded and do it right then you should be ok. Of course, there is the possibility that the FT shooter makes the first, misses the second on purpose and they get a tip in or rebound and another shot...still, that is less likely than hitting a 3 point shot.
I'd have my guys foul if I was the coach. If Calipari had done it in 08 then they would have probably won the national title (only to be stripped later) and they had a perfect opportunity to do it.
Why not foul someone without the ball? They can't fake the shot then.
Th NBA made a new rule this year that you can't do that foul and jack up a ball for 3 and get 3 FTs.
well lets say u're up 3. u foul and they hit 2 ft's to get it to 1. u inbound the ball and get fouled... all of a sudden u miss 1 or maybe both. now, instead of at worst going to ot, you could lose the game on the next shot. it all depends on the coaching strategy and the players.
yea especially in the NBA when you can advance the ball. There is a reason almost no one does this.
