I say that the limit on overtimes in a game should be 3. I say after the 3rd overtime period of a game if it is still tied, they should go to a game of horse between 2 opposing players. I have a feeling this will be implemented within the next 5 seasons sometime after the NBA catches wind of this from the seeds I'm planting here on city-data...lol

You think this would be a good idea?

Forget HORSE, have something like penalty kicks in soccer, except with free throws. Everyone on the team must shoot. Team with most baskets win.

NOT a good idea.

I like the NBA and MLB deciding things on the court (or on the field).

So they have the flopping thing. The Reggie Miller thing. How long it takes after introductions before tip-off. And now this? Is the NBA trying to sabotage themselves?

I'll assume this is a serious question and give the serious answer that it fixes a problem that doesn't exist.

There has been 1 game in the past 15 years that didn't resolve within 3 OT periods (it was a quadruple OT game last year between the hawks & jazz)

Seems like an awful lot of effort to stop teams playing an extra 5 minutes of ball for a situation that happens on a very rare instance (only 9 times in NBA history has a game exceeded 3 OTs)

I wouldn't put it past the NBA
This is the same league that has a draft lottery and thinks having a 3 months postseason is a good idea

No, they all get paid enough money to play until one team has more points than the other once the clock says zero, even if it's 5 overtimes.
