Really needs to go away. If I’m taller, I can pin your arm and it’s a foul on you every time.
^^^ This. You can't have the bigger guy just stick his arms out. Hell, might as well take 3 guys on the front line with 7 ft wingspans do this and they'll be no more offensive rebounds.I don't mind the rule if it's applied consistently. I also want players with inside position to have to move their feet. If they stick their arms straight out at the beginning of contact, then there should be no hook foul if a player is trying to fight for position. That said, one of the calls on Carlton was obvious was a foul. He hooked the guy with the intention to keep him from moving his arm or from jumping for the rebound.
It’s bs. Same with the ball screen fouls. The whole point of emphasis concept where the refs have to emphasize certain calls every year is dumb. Here is a point of emphasis for the refs: let the kids play! The game has become too choppy and the pendulum needs to swing back the other way
