Time Out

Easy: Change the time out rule back to what it was in the olden days, allowing only the players on the court to request a time out. The newer rule, allowing coaches to call time out, forces us to turn our attention away from the players, especially when coaches are calling time outs to avoid a turnover, like when their players are trapped, and likely to travel, or get a five second violation, meanwhile we're looking at pivot feet, possibly counting five seconds, and watching for fouls by either the defense, or the offense, and then hear "someone" yelling "time out" behind our backs.
