Jeff Van Gundy has never been shy about his opinions. And during today’s game, he said he believes NBA players should be able to buy more fouls.
After Andre Iguodala picked up a controversial fifth foul during the third quarter of the Warriors’ game against the Clippers, Van Gundy said,
“I think you should be able to buy an extra foul.”
“What is this, Wheel of Fortune,” Mike Breen asked.
“Yeah, you throw in like $5,000, and you get an extra foul that goes to charity,” Van Gundy said.
Van Gundy went on complaining about how tired he is of star players being on the bench during key stretches of games. A simpler and more realistic solution to this problem would be if players stopped committing dumb fouls.
Sorry Jeff Van Gundy, but I don’t think your proposal is something the NBA is going to be considering anytime soon.
