As I recall from that story, players who could jump higher would be required to wear weights to keep them from doing so. Also, players with larger hands would have to wear gloves that would restrict their ability to palm the ball as easily.
But will it outsource Calvin Ball?
While you’re at it, change the scoring convention. The higher the basket, the higher the score, bounce off rim and into a different basket would double the score. I can see sinking a 16 pointer.
A reference to Harrison Bergeron, by Kurt Vonnegut, eh?
Travelling should be eliminated. Just run the ball down keep away and shoot. Dribbiling is out of date.
When I was little we moved to a small town in Canada. They had just built a gym for the school & wanted to field a BB team.
My dad was the only one in town who had ever played, so he was drafted as coach.
1st day, he held up the ball and said, “This, gentlemen, is a puck.”
How about one timeout per game, and one guy on each team gets a stick.
And yesterday I first heard about 3×3 basketball. Coincidence?
And for track and field, make everyone carry weights in proportion to the length of their legs.
Quadruple alley-oop, anyone?
…well, anyone else. Cause there’s no way I’m managing it.
I like the referential comic today to Vonnegut. Nicely done. The punchline was funny too!
Eliminate basketball and the coach will replace it with dodgeball. MUCH better.
A hoops-hater? So close to basketball-mad East Lansing? That’s heresy!
Sounds like a plan to me.
Wouldn’t that be DianaMoonGlampersball?
Sweet Vonnegut reference.
