«I think, for me, what I learned as a coach at FIBA… There is a rule of failure,» Kerr told reporters when speaking about Game 4 of the series. «If a referee considers that a player has failed, he simply calls him a technical foul, and it is quite penalizing. And so failure has basically been removed from FIBA, and we have the ability to do the same in the NBA if we want to.

And it’s been that way for a while, and it’s up to us as a league.» Do we want to fix this?… These are all things that are my personal plea to the NBA. I think we can do better in terms of cleaning up failure. In the meantime, I give the Lakers credit for the plays they’ve been able to sell.»
