I was able to watch the Gold Medal game. Booker played excellent in your face defense but in the Olympic game they call some ticky tack fouls. That said, I thought the officiating was excellent.
I like their rule regarding not in the spirit of the game, like fouling to stop a fast break, etc., seems like we could use that!

Wow, thx. Booker didn't have a very good game stat wise. Actually kinda sucked (just from the stats - I did not see the game).

Devin did play some really good defense against France.

Against Australia he shot 7-10 from the field for 20 points.

I like it too. Fouls exist to dissuade, not to enable. I would love it if you couldn’t foul in the backcourt just to stop the clock at the end of the game. If you can’t get a stop and score then you lose. Usually it just delays the inevitable anyway.

The NBA used to have an intentional foul rule which they actually enforced. I'd be fine if they returned to that and dumped the breakaway call and any other workarounds that arose from dumping that rule.

Plenty of discuss on The Jump at 3 PM ET today with unveiling of Christmas Day games, including, sources say: Trae Young and Atlanta Hawks returning to play the New York Knicks at MSG. Plus, battle of the East-West titans: The Brooklyn Nets vs. the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples.
