Anyway, one of the greats of the game.
To this day, Hack-A-Shaq is one of the dumbest things I've ever seen in sports. I think I saw it work once. Why? Because shooting 50% from the free throw line is no different than shooting 50% from the field...and you definitely don't want that. It doesn't even make sense unless the guy's shooting 43% or less, but team after team would do it.
Haha...good point. When watching it, it seemed wrong, and I can't remember it ever working. Not to mention, you're lettin' Lakers set-up their defense, and making it tough on yourself to score. It also goes against the spirit of the game.
