What's with this BS? EJ got "T"'d for absolutely nothing. His back was to the Ref, he wasn't demonstrating or yelling and he's not a guy to act a fool. They've got to get rid of this rule (I'm sure Kobe etc won't get "T"'d)

As far as I remember, he looked at the ref when he hit his arm and said something. That's a T

But ya your right it wouldn't happen to Kobe. The ref actually paused for a moment before he called it. I remember me and my girl turned to each other at the same time when it happened..lol

its a ridiculous rule....i cant believe the T's that are gettin thrown around. All of the T's both teams go last night were ridiculous. It really pisses me off cuz it also slows down the game for us and we cant fastbreak when that crap happens -_-

I was right in front of him. It wasn't a T.

Do I agree with the call? No. However, Gordon did slap his arm and look at the ref. I was in the sixth row in 107. Saw it myself as well.

Hey, Portland got three T's for similar sorts of things... Guys simply giving a palms up are hit with T's... I like the rule for the most part... The players need to figure it out... I was getting sick of watching them whine after every call... Here's the problem though... End of game, key moment, bad call and a player reacts... Are they going to still call the T and maybe decide the game? That will be interesting...

^^^ Yeah, initially I had a big problem with the new standards. However, I think the players will adjust and, pretty soon, we won't even be thinking about it any more.

according to the ticky-tack T's portland was getting in the first half, gordo deserved it.

it'll clean up the game, but like someone said earlier, its just gonna make the game MUCH MUCH slower.

(lol, as im writing this, im watching suns/jazz. milsap hit an and-1 and lopez reacted. technical called.) 39 technicals called already this year.

It's way too strict- I can see where if a player waves his arms, jump up and down, throws a fist in the air, etc. But demonstrating that you got hit in the arm and getting tech'ed for it is ridiculous. The ref blew it by not calling a foul, and then screwed us even more by t'ing up Gordon.

when in the history of the game has a ref changed his mind because a player told him he was fouled? if anything, the new rule will encourage players to hustle back in transition instead of wasting time complaining to the ref.

we went from getting an and 1 to getting Td up with a terrible no call and then a terrible call. it affected our momentum and caused a 2 point swing. not that i'm confident he would have made his free throw, for a shooter he sure likes to miss from the line!

very well put. I am sure that right now (since the start of the new rule) the refs will be super strict but playoff type ending games they might let it go (towards the end of the season) slowing down the game is not their task it's speeding it up and making it more exciting + with talks about $$$ cuts you think players are gonna want that T? players that complain so much (kobe) will have to suck it up OR learn to deal with paying fees + missing games...

i dont remember but is there a rule that states if you get x amount of T's you receive x amount of game suspension?

Can they at least call "delayed" T's so that teams can still have breakaways? Call those BS T's when there's a dead ball.

Yes, there is such a rule. I think if you get somewhere around 15 or 16 Ts, you get a 1 game suspension. I seem to recall reading that Dwight Howard was 1 away from the limit last season.

I dont think it will really slow down the game that much. The has been about 2.5 techs on average per total game, which is up by a little over 1 per game.

I like the fact that Kobe and co. arent going to be whining after every play. The game was getting out of hand and that was slowing the game down way more than an extra tech. Players not going back on D, the refs wasting time arguing with them and trying to converse.

Also, as mentioned a few posts above, players will actually get back on D more.

That's not the point. You think Gordon was trying to convince the ref to change his call? He's just telling the ref hey you missed a call there. That's too much if you're going to disallow even a reaction like that. He wasn't throwing his arms in the air- he was just doing the universal sign language of "I got fouled".

that sign language is soon going to change and it will be a good thing imo:)

I think the rule is a great idea and once the refs and players get acclimated to it we will see better basketball without the BS complaining that the NBA has become known for. Here's a strategy: Don't complain at all, then when other teams can't get used to it yet, we come out on top.

I agree that the complaining has to stop, but last night, they T'd up Deron Williams for showing some emotions after a dunk.

Deron Williams got T'd last night twice and the commentators were getting annoyed by this rule. Anyone can and will get T'd up.

The rule is ridiculous and a big load of bull if you ask me. Just like the NFL were making the game into a huggy bear snuggy time rather than just letting the athletes play the damn game.

actually he only got one technical. The time after the dunk was ruled delay of game. If it had been a second "T" he would have gotten ejected.

I would have been pissed because he is on my fantasy team:)

The call on D Will was legit. He hit the ball into the crowd...If he hit it straight down or something he most likely wouldn't have gotten the call (because the game wouldn't have been delayed)
