Stephen Curry Agrees With Draymond Green About New NBA Rules: “It's Obviously Way Better To Watch… It's Great For The Game.”

With the 2021-22 NBA season in full flow, we are finally seeing the impact of the NBA's new rule change. The decision was made to prevent players from getting excessive foul calls and flopping from time to time. So far it is safe to say that the new rules have worked.

More and more players' free throw numbers have dropped. The game has also become more interesting for fans to enjoy. Despite a few players complaining about the rules, recently Draymond Green spoke in favor of them.

Following Green's comments, his teammate Stephen Curry also had a few things to say about them. In a post-game interview, Curry said:

"It's obviously way better to watch... I used to like them when it worked out for you. It's kind of funny for me in Portland, the first preseason game, I had that one where I tried to draw a foul. You just get rid of that impulse. Figure out what other options you have. I've been watching around the league and for the most part I'd say 9 out of 10 calls that used to go the other way are not for good reasons. There's probably some that is still in that gray area where they'll get more consistent but it's great for the game. I know a lot of fans are loving it. The defensive-minded players are loving it."

As Curry stated, it might take some time for players to get adjusted to the new rules. Once the adjustment is made, it will be great to see the league as a whole.

After all, many players' games have now become pretty one-dimensional due to getting fouls in their favor and racking up numerous free throws in each game.

For Curry, that might not be an issue as the two-time NBA MVP is still playing at an elite level. Thanks to his red-hot form to begin the season, the Warriors currently have a record of 5-1 and hold the second seed in the West.

Moving forward, the team will only get better and fans might finally see the Warriors go deep in the postseason led by Steph Curry, as they were previously used to saying season after season.
