Have you ever watched a sporting event and wondered why particular players don’t do particular things? As I watch college basketball, I have always wondered why point guards don’t intentionally run into coaches that leave the box and stand on the court when the ball is live (or even rocket the ball off their backside). It seems like it would be a total win for the team that executed the move. The coach is rattled, you get a free shot and the ball back, and I think the technical goes toward the other team’s total fouls. Plus, it would be nice to see some of the more demonstrative coaches have to deal with such an act.
Well, thanks to Jason Kidd, my prayers have been answered. He finally tried it and
the PTI guys Dan LeBatard and Mike Wilbon debate whether it is fair or foul:
So what say you, basketball fans? Is it fair or foul?
