    David Stern Wants to End Hack-a-Shaq (Tiago, D12, etc)

    Via Yahoo, Stern wants to improve the flow of the game by extending the 2 minute rule which takes place at the end of games to the full 48 minutes for off-the-ball fouling. Intentional fouls of the non-ballhandler would (and do in the last 2 minutes) result in 2 free throws plus retaining possession of the ball.

    The argument that follows Stern's line of thinking is that the game becomes disjointed and unenjoyable to watch when it turns into a special olympics of free throwing (my words not his).

    Counter arguments include the opinion that the big fellas simply need to learn how to shoot the freebies, it's a tactical part of the NBA (like no DH in the NL of baseball) and that off-the-ball fouls are not always intentional and could be unfairly punished.

    I'm really split on whether or not I think it should be allowed. I don't think I care too much either way.

    My opinion is that it's tactical and should not change. If anything, get rid of the rule. It forces a team to decide if they want to keep a particular player in the game despite his liability while the other team gives up fouls and foul shots to the other team. That's fair to me.

    agreed...

    The NBA already does too much to protect poor FT shooters IMO.

    If people can't shoot - deal with it.

    To be fair, others have been subjected to it "Slay-a-Dré" in Motown or the very uncreative "Hack-a-DJ" in Clipperland. Not saying a certain large market and its fan base isn't the reason, but Dwight isn't the only big taking a lickin'.

    Its the NBA. If you can hit a free throw then take your *** to the bench. Dictator Stern trying to make sure Lakers get to finals without any late game **** ups by Dwight at the line.

    Leave the rule alone, these dudes are professionals. It's an embarrassment on them for not improving.

    Also, could a mod change the title to correct David Stern's name?

    Thread fail on my part. But the "s" is right there by the "d."

    MAKE YOUR FREE THROWS.....you are a PROFESSIONAL.

    If more Knicks players had the heart of John Starks, we'd have more rings.
