I disagree. Personally, I want less illegal contact in the game…

… than more, and more fouls means more illegal contact. Players need to learn not to foul, or not rely upon fouls to defend, to keep the game watchable IMO.

I liken it to making it illegal to put on a shift in baseball (which I’m vehemently against). If I’m a player and can bunt it or hit it down the 3rd base line and guarantee I’ll get on base if I do, but choose not to, that’s on me, not the rule.

No thanks to more fouls. I’m not totally against the 4 quarter rule, which would change how “team” fouls are counted for 1+1 and bonus shooting. But I’d rather see a rule change on the 1+1 that makes it less an advantage for the fouling team.
