Anti Harden and Pachulia Rules Will be in Effect This Season

James Harden and Zaza Pachulia may need to do some adjustments.


James HArden and Paculia rules


Golden State Warriors vs San Antonio Spurs in a critical game 1 of the western finals playoffs. Leonard takes the jump shot then Zaza Pachulia chases him over but not to block the shot but to occupy his landing space, that in the end injured the star player of the Spurs Kawhi. Warriors won that series.

In other news, Houston Rockets needing to score and James Harden got the ball but heavily defended. He leans towards his opponent and takes the shot and the foul, and one!

These are the kind of plays that will be closely watched by the referee this upcoming season in an effort to ensure fair play, protect players and make the game just a little more exciting.

Zaza Pachulia's infamous moves against Kawhi Leonard made the headline and totally changed the complexion of the game. This year, referees will be able to review replays and figure if the defender is positioned in a way that can injure players or may have different intentions. They could upgrade the call to flagrant foul if deemed that the move is meant to injure and not to defend.

In the case of Harden and other players, it is somehow natural for players wanting to score to fish for a foul and one way of doing that is to jump towards your defender and put your arms right below theirs and there you go, you got a high probability of getting a foul called and earn two shots at the charity line.

It some ways, I feel that limiting the moves would limit the creativity of players as they will try to impose jump shooter to jump straight upward instead of towards the opponent.

What do you think of this rule?
