The NBA is trying out a new rule in Summer League this summer. It is called the Advance Rule. It works like this:
Getting the ball out the backcourt and across the half court line takes skill when being pressured by a defense determined to make that difficult. This rule feels like a something that would work in a Youth League, not in a competition of the best basketball players in the world.
What's next? Bringing back the old 3-to-make-2 foul shot rule?
