NBA May Require Teams To Disclose Starting Lineups 30 Minutes Before Games 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Mon Sep 16, 2019 3:17 am

The NBA proposed a memo that would require teams to disclose their starting lineups 30 minutes before every game, league sources told Zach Lowe of ESPN.


Teams are currently required to disclose their starting lineups 10 minutes before tip-off.

Makes sense as gambling becomes a bigger part of the game.

This is 100% in line with the NBA getting on board with legalized gambling and nothing else.

This is one of the dumbest rule change proposals ever. Why not require teams to disclose all their game plan strategies 30 minutes before the game? This is just stupid. Why do we want to eliminate any game strategy from the game?
