NBA Timeouts – Interruptions to Excitement

Josh Levin writes an interesting story in Slate about his exasperation with the use of timeouts during NBA games. He specifically mentions the Monday night Mavericks-Spurs overtime game (that I stayed up to watch), where he notes, “I’ll give it to you straight, sleepyheads: Reading about it was a lot more fun than watching it… In the game’s final moments, there were nearly as many timeouts (six) as field goals (seven). If this is as good as basketball gets, please run 2,000 volts through my recliner.”
