Jump putts are Stand and Deliver.
What I think you are looking for is Deliver and Stay (allows run-up and follow through, just need to leave our foot on the lie).

Almost nobody jump putts inside 50 feet and anytime someone makes a putt outside 50' it's cool as hell and should be encouraged.

For step putting, if it were such a big advantage everyone would do it. I estimate 80% of players choose not to step putt, so if it isn't a big advantage they can't be "cheating" so let them do it.

I don't see the problem or a need for any rule changes. It's fine.

Philo & Ian had more to say in final round coverage, seeing how close to a fault Dickinson was on his step putt, and how it puts cardmates in an awkward position.

That would devalue the 3 pointer though and create more space, not a bad idea. Personally I think they should make the court 3 feet wider, extend the current line back 1 foot and be done with it. But then of course, arenas would lose a front row of seating to accommodate the larger court. So not likely. It pretty clear though the NBA has a problem, just as disc golf does, even if many don't realize it.

Enough with only making baskets smaller.

Time to move past that ancient/backwards school of thought and look to the future.
Actually discs are smaller today! From 1964 till the early 80's the standard width was much wider then your standard midrange today. Super and vintage class discs. 23.5 compared to 21.2 today putters.

Meanwhile baskets got even a little bit wider (about an inch if you compare a Mach I and Mach X).

So we got smaller better discs but bigger baskets and players who have evolved tremendously.

I've got a reason: Injuries.

And another one: nobody wants this.

The issue of it being too hard to tell if it's a foot fault or not is pretty easy for me. If it's too hard to tell with the naked eye, then it isn't a foot fault. The benefit of doubt goes to the player, then you continue to enjoy the rest of the round.

Please don't change this rule. I just friggin' figured out how to do it and it's fun!

Should am’s and pros play by the same rules? I think that’s the big question for me. I developed a step putt to use from 35-80 feet. I have a decent half-go throw from beyond that. I know I can’t stand and deliver putt all that well from 60 feet and I’m not going to throw from 60 feet.

So I like being able to step putt. Should I be required to play by the same rules as pros bc they can throw 900 ft in 2 throws and make 5/10 or better from 45 feet? Do I want to put in the time to develop a 60 foot C1 style putt when a fine option already exists? I sink very few 40-60 foot step putts. But I like knowing I have a chance and will be happy with short putt out if I execute step putt well.

And I think stand and deliver in the fairway is a non-starter question. The run-ups plus throw quality best show off the athleticism in the game.
