Leave it how it is or get rid of the rule, free throws are part of the game. As much as I know this would help the Lakers it's not worth having (another) title with an asterisk.
Dodgers, Lakers, Raiders.

David Stern just wants to end anything to do with Gregg Popovich. It really is pathetic to the point Stern will go based on ratings. The Spurs have done everything right for the game of basketball. They're even more entertaining now and newb NBA fans still call them boring because they have no common sense.
Maybe the fact that the Lakers have a player who falls into this catagory now causes you and others to want to leave this rule into place. I bet if the Lakers still had Bynum shooting above 70% most if you would think logically and want to do away with it.
You guys act like Stern is trying to help the Lakers. When in fact he has never tried to change the rule while Shaq or Dwight were on the team. He tried to change it after Shaq left and before Dwight got here. If he was trying to help the Lakers, he wouldnt have vetoed the CP3 trade. And he would have asked for this rule to be changed 13 years ago.
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.
Why did the chicken cross the basketball court?Because he heard the refs were blowing fowls.
Instead of changing the rule, maybe Howard could learn to shoot FT's with at least a 60% clip. I mean 47.7% FT shooting...Terrible. I'll admit, it's an annoying tactic, but if you can't shoot FT's well enough to get hacked, then practice and get better! It's not like it's a skill that can't be learned, crafted, and improved. Otherwise your a liability to your team in the most important moments of the game. I don't fault opposing coaches for using all tools at their disposal to get a win.
