I don't think so - On those high-speed collisions they most often result in missed shots anyways. No-call; good defense - get back. Players would have to guard it the same way they would guard it if they were playing a pick-up game.

And if most charge/block calls were in instances like the one you describe, I would think nothing needs to be changed. But now 90% of them are just guys sliding under somebody who is already committed to jumping and they have the pre-emptive flop in mind.

This would do two things;
1. Increase scoring (everybody loves that)
2. Decrease flopping (everybody hates that)
3. Prevent injuries (good for everybody)
