    Yeah it's okay. So you're saying passing should be illegal? Let's lessen the shot clock then!

    Yeah, by jacking up a plethora of contested 3's. Anyone could do that.

    No, as I've been saying, it degrades the game because the game should be over. I'm talking about intentional fouls altogether. But no, the losing team has to foul for the next 5 minutes because they can't accept losing or score their way back into the game.

    Funny how a purely subjective and emotional argument is so popular with other fans of the sport. This "strategy" you praise has been looked down upon for years. Intentional fouls should be banned. Like I said, it's not tag, it's basketball. You defend, you shoot the ball, sometimes you miss, sometimes you make shots. That's the game. Not fouling like a little ***** because you're losing.
    Your post does not contain 1 decent argument. Are you 12? I'm serious because if you are, I wont continue to make fun of you

    If you really want to improve the quality of the sport take away all those back to back games and 3 in 4 nights scheduling screw jobs completely.
    Or how about you take away touch fouls and "superstar calls"

    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.

    They`re = contraction of they are
    There = used to describe location
    Their = pronoun used to describe belonging
    Should've = contraction of should have
    Should of = makes no sense at all

    Your moronic reasoning was in full effect tonight. Wizards fouled their way back into the game, and then Warriors fouled Beal before he could shoot a 3 that might've tied the score. Intentional fouls all around! Whew! Honorable sport! Oh, and Beal also purposely bricked a free throw! All the flaws of the NBA in one game!

    I don't see how these are flaws.

    Go on, lets hear your crazy reasoning behind a player missing a free throw on purpose so that their team has a chance to winning the game is bad for basketball.

    I feel like a special olympian would be a better free throw shooter anyway.

    I hate the flopping rule. Why not just tell the refs to call what they see and like you're saying stop calling all the ticky tack fouls. How can the league justify calling a foul for one player and not another is completely unacceptable in my book.

    It's crazy for players to abuse the rules.

    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.

    What does me being a Laker fan have to do with anything? I don't like wasting my time being bored. I didnt like it when they did it to Shaq when he was on another team either. I would change the channel and probably not end up going back to the game. That is what concerns Stern. Bad T.V means less ratings. Less ratings means less money.

    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 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.
    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.

    The Hack a whoever only really happens to the Lakers now, so why make the big push to get rid of it now?

    It is good how it is now, if the person can;t shoot, they better learn
