BNB sent out a message this morning announcing that effective immediately they are eliminating zone defense in the half court and full court. Teams are no longer able to double team or trap in any way.
I think that the overall intent of the rule is good. I don't like the penalty for it. The first offence gets a warning, second a technical and third is removal of the coach. I think this is going to be a huge headache throughout the province. Players need an adjustment phase and I don't think that a coach should be put out of the gym because his players are struggling to adjust to this. Players have been double teaming in the backcourt for years and need time to adjust.
