Basketball players, play too hard?

-A A +A

I would like to know if there are other people who wish for the days again when basketball was a non-contact sport? I played grade school and then weekend pickup games when I lived in Harrison County in the late 50’s and early 60’s. We all knew what a foulwas...even the referees.
The way college and NBA players are allowed to push, hit, hold, trip and further abuse each other is detrimental to the game in my opinion.
