My congratulations to Mr. Teaford on an honest article about one of the most troubling aspects of the NBA. Basketball should be a wonderful game of refined skills and nuances. Instead, in recent years, it has become a game of thugging and mugging -- primarily to satisfy the fans of extreme fighting, professional wrestling, and hockey.
In real basketball, there is no such thing as a "good foul." Players who repeatedly commit fouls and under-the-basket muggings should be eliminated, not celebrated.
I should add that the Lakers have not been entirely free of this unfortunate trend. However, Fisher, Bryant, and -- particularly -- coach Jackson are thoughtful people who generally play a good game and do not deserve to be mauled by the Nuggets.
Yours For Better Basketball,
