Then by this standard, let's examine ourselves and rip out that sense of hypocrisy within. Now, if we ever decide to take on a hack-a-X strategy, it should be deemed unfair to the ethics of the game.

Easiest way to make it stop? Make your free throws. It's pretty simple.

From our view, I must say that is irritating as [expletive].

but from other teams perspectives, why wouldn't you do it ? he's garbage at FT's.

At least change the rules that if you foul someone intentionally then the team who gets fouled gets to pick who shoots the FT's when it's under 2 mins left In the game.
I think that still wouldn't of helped us tonight but it does kind of make things fair so that we can pull Howard out when he's getting fouled but won't need to in crunch time in a close game.

Just a thought.

But regardless, tonight's game should have never been as close as it was with us being home playing an undermanned garbage team.
only Kobe can stop Kobe.

Need some clarification on fouling under the 2 minute mark in the 4th. If someone off the ball gets fouled intentionally, is a technical free throw shot handed out then the guy who got fouled shoots the 2 freethrows?

No .. I think it's a great strategy .. As much as I hate it if the other team had a 50% ft shooter I would expect us to do the same. Conter strategy ? Dwight has to work on his damn freethrows .. cause the hack-a-dwight won't stop .. and we'll lose a lot more close games ..

They didn't foul him after he made both free throws and waited a bit longer to foul him again.

Point is, you would do it since it is a way of winning. Howard will have to knock them down otherwise he cant carry his impact to another level.

I hate watching someone get hacked but it's a legit strategy. If a professional basketball player can't shoot consistently enough that the other team would rather send him to the line instead of letting an offense play out, then that weakness fully deserves to be taken advantage of.

Maybe he should visit Ron Artest's shrink. This boy is really weak mentally. He can hit 85% of FTs at the gym but he bricks almost 60% of them in games.

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

We shouldn't be complaining about this, because we would do the same thing. Dwight should be working on a way of improving his FT shooting.

So let me get this straight. We traded Bynum because he couldn't play on the court with Gasol, his health was a questionmark. However he can make free throws and was well on his way to a 20/10 career. Dwight can't play on the court with Gasol, we are still talking about he is not 100% healthy, HE CAN'T HIT FT's and is about 20/10. I know Dwight SHOULD be a better fit and HOPEFULLY will be better but DAMN!! Food for thought

We let Orlando score 40 in the 4th... Dwight making his free throws wouldn't have saved us.

Rules need to be changed, but who knows if the rules changing makes things better or worse.
