Xinhua News Agency, Beijing, October 30 (Reporters Wang Jingyu, Cao Yibo) The first stage of the regular season of the 2022-2023 Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) is coming to an end. Some industry experts said that the league hopes to make the game more intense and exciting by further improving the quality of penalties.

There are many new changes in the CBA league in the new season. The referee’s penalty scale has been adjusted compared with the past. Some physical contact that may have been called a foul in the past has not been called. The confrontation on the field is more intense than before. These changes have also caused external attention and discussion.

On October 14, in the second round of the first stage of the CBA League, the referee Guo Nan (the first from the right) and the second deputy referee Jiang Wen’an (the second from the right) checked the video playback during the game.Xinhua

Lu Yongming, the full-time deputy director of the Referee Committee of the Chinese Basketball Association, said: “The Chinese Basketball Association has always maintained close ties with FIBA ​​at all business levels. Before the start of the 2022-2023 CBA league, in order to better enable Chinese basketball All standards and levels are consistent with international basketball. After communication with FIBA, the Chinese Basketball Association has fully benchmarked the FIBA ​​refereeing standards. Since the beginning of the new season, the CBA league has one and only one refereeing standard. It is the refereeing standard of FIBA. With the progress of the league, whether referees, coaches or athletes, they are deepening their understanding of the refereeing standards of FIBA ​​through actual combat, and actively adapt to make the game more intense and exciting. The referee committee of the Chinese Basketball Association is also making timely corrections according to the problems in refereeing and making regular comments to make the league referee standards and standards more consistent and stable.”

Du Feng, head coach of the Chinese men’s basketball team, said that the direction of the CBA league to encourage physical confrontation is right, and it is also in line with the development trend of international basketball. When leading the Chinese men’s basketball team to participate in international competitions such as the World Preliminaries and the Asian Cup, he clearly felt some differences in the penalty scale between domestic leagues and international competitions, and this difference also brought some challenges to the Chinese team. What Du Feng felt the most was that in international competitions, the referee’s contact and confrontation with the torso were relatively loose, which means that physical confrontation was more encouraged. However, some fouls on the hands are blown very hard and the tolerance is very low. This season, the CBA league has made some adjustments to the penalty scale. The referees are still adapting and mastering the new scale, and the athletes and coaches are also adjusting their cognition and adapting to the new scale.

“I personally think that in such a transitional period, coaches and athletes should give more understanding and tolerance to referees. At the same time, we also expect referees to encourage physical confrontation and some bad actions when refereeing according to the new standards. In particular, the hand movements should be distinguished to avoid increasing the probability of athlete injury due to some penalties that should be blown but not blown. After a period of time, everyone’s understanding of fouls and the scale of penalties have reached a unified understanding. In this case, this The adjustment of the referee’s refereeing scale can play an expected positive role in promoting the development of the national team, the league and even Chinese basketball.”

A senior referee expert said that the FIBA’s penalty scale is always in dynamic adjustment and change, and the same is true for the CBA league and the American professional basketball team. Between 2004 and 2008, the referee’s penalties tended to encourage confrontation, so during that time teams like Australia and Spain that paid more attention to physical confrontation performed well. Later, FIBA ​​found that there was a tendency to increase the number of fouls on the court after the relaxation of the whistle-blowing scale, and advocated a “clean game” to adjust the penalty scale. In 2015, FIBA ​​once again reformed the refereeing work, requiring referees to “clean up” some inappropriate movements in the game, and to impose strict penalties on diving, unsportsmanlike fouls and technical fouls, thus interrupting the game. happens more often. The concept of “high-quality non-sentencing” proposed by FIBA ​​aims to find a new balance in controlling fouls and ensuring the smoothness of the game.

The expert said that judging from the situation of the domestic CBA league, the adjustment of the FIBA ​​penalty scale in the past few years was relatively tight, and the fouls were blown too tightly and too fast, so that the average number of fouls per game increased significantly and the game was interrupted. too many times. Now FIBA’s penalty scale has a new orientation. After the referee gets the spirit of “high-quality refusal”, there is a process of adaptation, which requires a period of running-in time. In the first few rounds of the CBA, some referees hoped to whistle after watching the whole process of the foul, for fear of “blowing too much”. However, due to the very fast pace of the CBA game and the transition between offense and defense, some penalties that should be blown have not been blown. Some missed judgments may increase the risk of injury to athletes, and it is understandable for clubs to have opinions. Objectively speaking, it is not easy for referees to break existing habits and establish a new “reflex arc” of whistling in their brains, and it requires a process. With the progress of the CBA league, referees will continue to move closer to “high-quality non-sentence”, rather than going against this principle and returning to the original scale. The current situation is that there are some “low-quality refusals”, which of course need to be corrected, and the referees are trying to find the balance between controlling the game and “high-quality refusals”.Return to Sohu, see more
