“A” to Stern for Effort

So David Stern announced the NBA would begin enforcing a “Rasheed Wallace Rule.”  This anti-whining policy will encourage refs to give technicals early and often to players who throw their arms up in disgust after a foul is called.  The basic idea is to attempt to regain the credibility of the refs and to punish those who feel they can usurp their authority.

Amen!!!

One of the top reasons for the failure of the NBA is the fact that it has become a league of babies.  Players act as though they are immune to the rules both on and off the court.  When someone actually tries to enforce these rules, players cry and scream like a child who had its bottle stolen.  I, for one, am sick of this attitude.  Apparently, I’m not alone.

When given word of the new rule, Pistons forward Rasheed Wallace immediately decided the rule was made solely for him (he’s not far off).  Wallace also claimed that it was a result of him “doing something right.”  I guess you can’t get through to everyone.
