Deandre Jordan made history and set a postseason record Sunday night. He attempted 28 free throws in the first half and made only 10. This is ‘Hack-a-Shaq’ at its peak. It is just painful to watch this pathetic strategy and their is no clear way to fix this except one. GET BETTER AT SHOOTING FREE THROWS!!!! Adam Silver, the NBA commissioner, has stated that he plans to tweak the rules to make ‘Hack-a-Shaq’ “illegal” so to speak. That’s how bad this problem is. It is so bad that the commissioner of the league has the change rules to fix the problem. There is nothing that Adam Silver can do to fix the problem and please all sides. The only true way to fix this is to have the atrocious free throw shooters, specifically big men, to GET BETTER AT SHOOTING FREE THROWS.
