Dr. Nick Elam (Episode 60)

Creator of the “Elam Ending”

"He is a die-hard basketball fan who set his sights set on solving one of his biggest problems in basketball – those last few minutes that seem to take hours because of intentional fouls. The “Elam Ending” aims to revolutionize basketball by eliminating end-of-game fouling all together and keeping the quality of play consistent throughout the entire game. Here’s how the Elam Ending works: Eliminate the clock from crunch time (under three-minute timeout in the NBA and under four-minute timeout in college) and establish a new target score by adding seven points to the leading team’s score. Resume the game and first team to reach the target score wins.”
