TORONTO - Interesting take on the NBA’s crackdown on technical fouls from hall-of-famer Kevin McHale.

McHale told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that the rules, which are intended to respect the game by penalizing complainers, could be utilized in another way: “Respect for the game is playing hard,” said McHale, now a TV analyst after many years running the Timberwolves.

“Respect for the game is going out there every single night and busting your hump. If you’re going to give technicals out of respect for the game, it should be for guys who are doggin’ it. Give a technical to a guy who’s walking up and down the floor, or the guy who’s not diving after the ball or going after the rebound and not boxing out, or who’s afraid to hit somebody to make some space down there.”

If such a rule were in place, ex-Raptors Vince Carter and Hedo Turkoglu would not be around in the second half of many games.
