CHANGE ON THE HORIZON: TRUE HOOP’s Henry Abbott wrote Stern “signaled that he will urge a newly formed competition committee to consider significant rule changes -- for instance, the elimination of basket interference, video analysis to punish floppers and increased video review of flagrant fouls.” Stern said, “There's no shortage of issues to be discussed from rules enforcements to video replay to a variety of other issues.” No new rules “are certain,” but even if the new committee “changes, owners must approve them, which is an uncertain process.” Abbott noted Stern “is careful to point out ‘we don’t have any expectations for the new committee'” (ESPN.com, 5/30).
