    That would have some serious effects I suppose - think about DH, Gerald Wallace or Josh Smith battling the ball while it's still on the rim.

    Let's see how that works on the D-League.. Hopefully it will never applies to the NBA :)

    I'd like to see it. I was always annoyed with the goaltending rule when I was playing basketball... on 8 foot rims.

    I got called for goaltending once in high school.
    I touched the net while the ball was on the rim.

    I was so proud of that achievement.

    Me, I played mostly one on one. I could hit shots from half court. Goal tending?..yep I did it once.

    I tried it once when I was very young because of injuries but people called it everything BUT goaltending.

    Oh yeah, the sport was hockey.

    You can shoot with either hand, though....very difficult to defend.

    Dude, I just know that you have that infamous post archived somewhere. If so, is there any chance you might post it for old time's sake?

    I did have it but no more. If anyone has the aforementioned inspirational post please come forward.

    I wish that I would have had the foresight to save that one on it's own dedicated external hard drive.

    ...a true collector's item!
