Referees Rumors

Perhaps what makes the game easier for contemporary players is the lack of enforcers and the advent of the flagrant foul, which have limited the physicality. Opposing teams can’t send messages to a player such as Curry with a hip check on a layup for fear of ejection. “The enforcers used to do things on the fly,” Miller said. “Away from the play, with the guy going across the lane, a little forearm shiver to the chest just to wake you up. Now, that’s a flagrant-2. “That’s a lost art, because now if a guy gets hot, there’s nothing you can do.”
