I don't like the idea of ejecting players, except in desperation.
If a star player or 2, or 3, are gone, the game is hardly worth
watching. Like locking up criminals and throwing away the key, in
practice it doesn't work.
Giving the damaged party 2 or 3 or 4 FTs, all the while the
opposing coach is chewing out his player, would be better.
Putting the onus on the refs, to eject Shaq in LA, would generally
result in no penalty at all. Ejection is so "all-or-nothing". How
to throw out the bathwater without tossing the baby.]
How about this rule: first team flagrant foul = 2 FT and the ball
out; 2nd team flagrant = 4 FT and the ball; etc...
What we want is that the game not get out of hand, right?

I had Davis among the most-improved leaders all season. He really
brought it in the playoffs, too.

Aaron McKie is having his 3rd straight playoff overachieving year.
It seems to be a feature of his career: ok season, stupendous
