Michele Roberts, the Executive Director of the National Basketball Players Association, said in this day and age it’s no longer necessary for photographers to set up shop on the baseline, and adds that it’s time for a change.

“While I appreciate and enjoy up-close action shots of game play, do they really need to be that close to the action?” Roberts asked, in a statement to NEOMG (Northeast Ohio Media Group). “I am no techno geek, but haven’t we evolved such that we can capture that action without being within inches of the game? Frankly for both the safety of the players and the camera men and women, we need to find a better solution.”
