NBA changing rules to avoid so many players resting
    2017-August-10  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE NBA has issued a memo to teams this week advising of scheduling changes to impact player participation, according to the ESPN.

The season has been extended for a week starting earlier in October, and several rules are being put in place to disincentivize the stars from resting so much. ESPN, which is reporting on this, is also in a position to be a beneficiary of changes, as a broadcast partner. Last year, there were several moments where ESPN on-air personalities complained about stars resting in prime-time games.

The changes include:

No four games in five days stretches;

Fewer than 18 games over every 30 day period;

Reduction of five games in seven days stretches for each team, by cutting those types of scenarios in half (40 total occurrences next season versus 90 times last year);

Forty fewer back-to-back games this upcoming season;

More weekend games, even during football season.
