          • More proof that the coaches let interns do the voting. Players receiving first team votes include guys like Chris Copeland and Alexey Shved.

                Agree with the Zen. Hack-a-whoever is ruining the game.

                I don't remember who it was, but I remember a tweet with a rule suggestion regarding the hack-a-shaq. If the opponent employs the hack-a-shaq and fouls your player, the team has the option to either shoot the FT's or take the ball out of bounds.

                  • As a Raptors fan, you should be happy that such a strategy exists. It creates an advantage for JV. He's not going to get hacked because he can hit those FTs, while there is a shitload of bigs who suck at the charity stripe. Everytime Raptors will play such a team, they'll gain an extra advantage.

                    However, despite all that, I also kind of hate the 'bug' in the game. But what do you suggest? If a guy can't shoot free-throws, he shouldn't play. Period.

                    ... Or just take the good with the bad and vice versa.

                          I dont' agree with this at all. If a player is a terrible free throw shooter, that should fully be something the opposing team is able to exploit. Naismith designed the game to eliminate fouls? He also designed the game for free throws to be among the easiest shots possible....hence the name FREE throws. The reason teams are not supposed to foul on purpose is because the penalty is supposed to offset any gains, since it is such an easy shot.

                          Also, it's not as simple as making a rule change like a team gets to decide if they'd rather take it out of bounds. What if it's clearly fouling someone on a shot attempt? This is an awful idea that can't possibly result in any sensible/fair rule. There are already rules for the last 2 minutes where possession is given on top of free throws when it's off-the-ball. It is also hard to foul someone intentionally when they do have the ball. How many times did Shaq get three point plays from poorly timed intentional fouls?

                          So basically, to employ the strategy effectively, a team can't just always foul the guy. The rules mostly protect the player/team at the end of a game...but the opposing team can't just let their players foul out for the other 46 minutes, because that'll probably result in a loss. A lot of guys have failed to use it very well. It hasn't always worked out for San Antonio and it's not like it stopped Shaq from winning rings. The real trick is using it to kill the momentum of a player and/or his team. Employing the strategy didn't just slow Shaq down, it would hinder the whole team's performance if done right by killing offensive flow, and stopping other people from getting involved, especially through use of the inside-out game which Shaq was great at initiating.

                          Again, you can say it's not in the spirit of the game, but the spirit of the game is about competition, team play and overcoming obstacles. If Shaq's team can't overcome his poor free throw shooting because a team is exploiting it, they deserve to lose. Rules shouldn't be changed just because of a lack of skills, especially just to cater to a few players. I mean, if ballhandling suddenly became awful among PGs across the league, should they eliminate (or more strongly penalize) reach-in fouls? No, of course not. Just because there are always a handful of bigs who couldn't get the ball in a hoola hoop, does not mean they should get special treatment.

                          • If given more minutes I'm sure JV would've made First Team, and much more.
