ABSTRACT
This article focuses on professional basketball in the U.S. Always resourceful when it comes to charity fund raising, the National Basketball Association has imposed a new technical foul policy this season. Now it costs $1,000 for the first five technical fouls, $1,500 for the next six fouls, and $2,000 for foul number 11 through 15. The Los Angeles Lakers team have provided their coach Phil Jackson a taller, economically designed chair to keep him comfortable on the sideline. Basketball player Shaquille O'Neal said that he never saw the need to practice longer than two hours.
