The NBA needs to leave 'hack-a-whoever' rules alone

There’s conversation going on in NBA circles regarding the intentional fouling of poor free-throw shooters in playoff games. Some of that conversation is going on right here at this site. My colleague Matt Zemek makes the case that allowing “Hack-A-Player” strategies rewards the breaking of the rules and should be eliminated. I disagree on two fronts. First, I am adamantly...

Eliminate Hack-A-Player: Don't reward violating sports rules

Yes, it’s convenient that we’re writing about Hack-A-Player at this specific point in time. Yet, the argument against allowing the practice existed far before the 2015 NBA Playoffs. Even before the Hack-A-(DeAndre) Jordan employed by the San Antonio Spurs over the past two weeks; even before Monday night’s sorry spectacle of the Hack-A-Jordan dueling with the Hack-A-(Dwight...

Spurs’ Bonner takes the gentle approach to ‘Hack-A-Jordan’

Look I get it. By now Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan is probably sick and tired of being hacked by the Spurs in their series. Lat night’s Game 4 was no exception as the Spurs once again resorted to hacking the L.A. center sending him to the line which eventually led to the Spurs’ win. But at least when Jordan was getting hacked by Matt Bonner, Bonner decided to take a gentle and...

A basket interference call on DeAndre Jordan took away the Clippers’ lead against the Spurs in Game 5 of their Western Conference playoff series, helping San Antonio win the game, likely the series, and potentially changing the course of NBA history in the process!

When should the Spurs hack DeAndre Jordan?

San Antonio head coach Gregg Popovich is notorious for intentionally sending opponents who can't shoot free throws to the free-throw line. For the most part, it's a useful tactic that's also terrible for everyone who's watching the game. Popovich obviously doesn't care about that last part. All he wants is a win; if you can't execute one of the game's most simple routines, you're...

DeAndre Jordan geeks out at Batman Exhibit

DeAndre Jordan is coming for your job, Ben Affleck. The Los Angeles Clippers center also happens to be one of the biggest Batman fans around, and that might be an understatement. Bleacher Report recently made Jordan’s day, and quite possibly his life, as they took him to the Batman Exhibit at the Warner Bros. VIP Studio Tour Hollywood. But that’s not all they did. Jordan...

Stats show ‘Hack-A-Jordan’ may not work

  You know it’s coming, the Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan knows it’s coming and the San Antonio Spurs are certainly going to do it. What is “it” you ask? “Hack-A-Jordan.” The Spurs have never shied away from using the tactic to send Jordan (a career 41 percent free throw shooter) to the line when the game […]

DeAndre Jordan Ready for Spurs’ “Hack-A-DJ” Strategy

The Los Angeles Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan is probably awaking in a cold sweat just thinking about the free throws that Gregg Popovich and the San Antonio Spurs will force him to shoot in their upcoming meetings. He won’t admit that though, instead choosing to tell the associated press in Los Angeles a different story. “It’s […]
