There's been a lot of talk recently about the idea being floated around by Tom Newell, son of legendary big man coach Pete Newell, to raise the NBA rim to 11-feet [via Deadspin]. He wants to promote better team play and he believes raising the rim will do that. This of course makes perfect sense because it was team play that led the Spurs to this year's championship...while also producing some of the worst Finals ratings in history.
But we would like to counter Newell's crazy idea with one of our own. Let's LOWER the rims. Why? Well, this video shows you why. Keep your eye on the guy going for the block. I'd certainly pay money to see this happen to Tim Duncan.
