    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.

    OMG I LOVE YOU. I've been saying this for years especially when people are intentionally fouling at the end of the game. Makes basketball games so damn boring at the end. I want a fast pace finish, not strategic fouling.

    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'.

    Seriously, like this has to be directed at Dwight and LA's poor start. Anyway like how often does it happen like 2-3 possessions down the floor at most. It's not like teams are doing the whole 4th quarter. It's strategy just let it play out or learn how to shoot a damn FT, they're free for a reason.

    What's next telling teams when they have to sub?

    Actually, it happens a lot more often than this. Last year in the Warriors game against Orlando (when they still had DH12) he shot a NBA record 39 something free throws. MJ had integrated the hack-a-Dwight strategy for most of the 2nd and 3rd quarters which completely ruined nearly half the game and he kept doing it despite the fact that at one point Dwight made 10 consecutive shots. He kept doing it and sacrificing fouls on multiple members of the team and it did little to detract the Magic from beating us anyway. So basically, it ruined the game by bringing it to a screaming crawl, DH12 made a bunch of free throws and we still lost the damn game. It did nothing to give any edge to my team.

    I absolutely hate when any coach uses any kind of hack-any-player strategy. Nelly did this a **** load of times while he was here too, so I have been seeing this crap over and over again for years, so in my honest opinion, teams should be penalized for hacking-a-anyone because I absolutely hate suffering through a game in which any team does this for extended minutes! I think the rule should be expanded, but not for the entire game like Stern wants. Maybe the last 6 minutes of the 2nd and 4th quarters or something along those lines.

    Personally, I think the best way to get a player out of the game who is killing your team, is to put a ton of fouls on them by relentlessly attacking them and drawing fouls on them. Why any coach approaches this in any other way is difficult for me to fathom.

    Exactly what I thought when I read the OP.

    There is nothing wrong with the rules that have been in place. Why doesn't Stern just tell teams to help their "Star" players improve their freethrows than there wouldn't be no problem.
    @paulpierce34 I told Wade I will **** his mom like how my man D. West did his mans. Thats why I got ejected
    Ignore List:
    AIMelo=KillaDUO; Reason: Makes up stories to protect the one he beats his meat to everynight(Melo)
    Chucky Woods; Reason: Packer Homer that just talks outta his Azz
    HaruSoul; Reason: Sanchez homer can't see that he is a POS qb
    Hustlenomics; Reason: Good luck debating with this Ronda homer
    nickdymez; Reason: Kobe/Laker homer but didn't even know how the Lakers got Kobe

    Yes because vetoing the Chris Paul trade was a big help.

    This.


    Seriously? Come on... learn to shoot a fracking free throw. The league is going to start handicaping the game in favour of star players who have deficiencies in their game?

    The league used to make rules to prevent the truly great players from dominating, now Stern wants to make rules to make it easier for the players he likes?


    Stern can go phuq himself.

    As opposed to handicapping the game for poor defensive teams?

    The Spurs are one of the best defensive teams the league has ever seen and they used the hack-a-shaq. Its not about deficiencies in defence, its about exploiting the oppositions weakness.

    The teams are using the tools available to them. There is no rule against that. Howard need to learn how to shoot free throws so that he's not a liability on the floor.
