Adam Silver Wants More Data Before Changing Hack-A-Shaq Rule

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has received his fair share of questions about the NBA’s ‘Hack-a-Shaq’ rule that allows a team to foul a player who’s bad at free throws intentionally to try to get a bigger lead, or get back in the game. The strategy has been used mostly on Clippers center DeAndre Jordan. According to Silver, as of right now, the NBA won’t make any changes.

Given that I’m torn on it, I think where I come out is, let’s look at one more season of data, Sliver told Rich Eisen on the Rich Eisen Show.

NBA general mangers also agree with Sliver, as they don’t support a rule change as of right now.
