    It serves a very useful purpose. It offers a time out late in the game when the score is close to help make a game more interesting, especially if the trailing team doesn't have all their time outs.

    I think it's a key part of a coaches strategy in a close game.

    I like games with careful planning and strategery. Probably why I don't care for basketball too much.

    Basically a TV timeout.

    Like an "officials time out" when neither team requested one.

    Get a prolonged ad marathon....................

    Doesn't mean it doesn't make a close game more interesting.

    The way Reid usually misuses time-outs, thank God there's a two minute warning.
