Lakers Rewarded Cash For Taking Charges


The Lakers have never been known as a team that takes offensive charges, but coach Phil Jackson is attempting to change that.

Jackson called his big men "thin-chested" during the Western Conference Finals as a way of getting them to take a hit and the team has been offering an incentive of $50 per charge.

"Their whole team is kind of a charging possibility taking team. We just got to be smart," guard Sasha Vujacic said of the Celtics. "They are a very smart team that can go from block to a charge, so we've been working a lot on charges and how to take them and stuff, so we'll see."

Los Angeles assistant coach Frank Hamblin, who monitors the fines and payouts, said the team has been rewarding players for charges since late last season.

The money comes out of a pool accumulated by players' fines, such as being whistled for an illegal defense, which costs a player $25.

Shouldn't that be a fine another Jackson???????
Don't believe those incentives are legal or at least added to luxury tax.
If Kobe took one he would be getting over the MAX

this is really no different than james brown or buddy rich fining band members for missing notes/beats while performing. it's a low-level way to keep guys accountable and to highlight a specific area that the group leader think needs to be perfected. this is hardly something that is relevant enough to be a cap hit. we're not talking meaningful dollars here.

thats pretty good, and they also charge 'em for illegal defense. just another little thing to hold the players accountable. can't really hurt, $50 bucks to them is like 5 cents to me and most of us here.

because this is where officiating going these days...disgusting but it is almost 50/50 if contact occurred outside of protected area

with 50 percent odds to stop an opponent team and add fouls to its key players it's pretty effective defense especially if attempted by role players

offensive/defensive fouls ratio is too high. NBA should do something about it
