    Sounds about as likely to happen as George Carlin's plans for fixing baseball: one strike and your out; hit by pitch, and you're out; and randomly placed landmines in the outfield, just to spice things up.

    If you upped the penalty for a foul so that basketball was a more sporting game, you'd miss all of the close contact that makes it such a fast paced game. With the penalties you propose, basketball would be about as boring as baseball, and only slightly more interesting than bowling or curling.

      The NBA, fast-paced? On what planet?

        This one. You can schedule an NBA game in prime time, and not need 7 hours to finish 60 minutes or 9 regulation innings of gameplay. And compared to Golf, the NBA plays at near relativistic speed. (That's even with the foul-a-minute rules.)

      But only if you're leaning outside the batters box at the time.
