How dare the nba make a rule because of a single player. The other guys should have just learned how to be taller and stopped it.

 

stop. they changed rules because one player was exploiting it and they didnt want everyone else to follow. everyone isn't getting hack-a-shaqd... becuz theyre in the nba and are expected to be able to shoot the same free throw your local diabetic at LA fitness can. cut it out.

next thing u know, dude will propose no more sliding for home plate in baseball, becuz 4 players have sensitive kneecaps and they can't slide as far.

You have no idea how ridiculous this makes you sound. This literally happened roll.gif

You can no longer collide with the catcher/block the plate because ONE player broke his leg.

Unless this was a joke of some sort laugh.gif

Google the Buster Posey rule, my man. All it took was for one man with a "sensitive" leg to change the way catchers play their position now. One of the msot exciting plays in baseball wiped away. You can no longer block the plate. You have to give the runner a clear lane to the plate or it's an automatic run.


All because of one guy. Crazy, huh?

In Melo's defense, he ended up throwing one down on a very similar play later in the game. One of the stronger finishes I've seen from him in a while. (Not sure Gobert was in the game on that one though)

I love how people say "well just make your free throws then" like they haven't considered that. :lol

 

And the difference between hacking and exploiting other players' weaknesses is that other stuff happens in the flow of the game. With guys playing 5 on 5. Not grinding the game to a halt and making it unwatchable.

Melo was never known to be a "vicious" dunker. Sure, he's had his fair share of dunks in his career, but he's always been known more of a perimeter player.

But this brings up the point that was previously brought a few weeks ago regarding people only seeing Melo's "deficiencies" rather than the great things he's been doing this season. He's arguably having the best overall season in his career and preserving his body which will enable him to have a longer career, but people want to say Melo has "fallen off" or needs to "come harder".

I really think it would be fair to say Melo is underrated at this point in his career.

Lebron is a Hell of a basketball player, but it's ridiculous for him or people to really believe he can fill a stat sheet like that on a nightly basis in todays game. It's just not happening.

As for the free-throw discussion: If they're putting in the work towards improving their free throws and still not seeing tangible results, then something needs to change. It's either form, the way they hold the ball or even their follow through. The bottom line is, if you're really about improving something you have a deficiency in, you'd look into every avenue available that leads you towards improvement. It just doesn't stop with shooting an X amount of free throws in Y amount of hours.

If I was Dwight Howard or DeAndre Jordan trying everything to fix my free throw percentage and still cant, then I'd consider trying to shoot them underhand or just go for the backboard. But like many others have previously said, it's a pride thing and their pride is more important than their teams success.

Which isn't surprising, because those guys are two losers who haven't amounted to jack **** in their NBA careers.

It's really really hard to change your form and keep it consistent when' you're fatigued though. Especially when you don't have natural touch for shooting.

I understand the strategy if your playing the game . It's within the rules but as a fan . Ehh once they start doing that hacking ish it does make the game unwatchable and I'll change the channel .

You're meaning to tell me it takes a lot of exerted physical effort to throw a basketball underhand or aim for the backboard? Isn't the whole point of shooting a free throw that way to save effort?

its hard for any and everyone to maintain form while tired. that point is irrelevant. you practice so it doesn't affect you as much.

might have to look up the definitions, dont quote me on this but... im pretty sure not being allowed to slide, and not being allowed to block the plate are a different. i might need a lifeline tho to be sure. brb.

Also it's not just a couple guys anymore. Over 20 players have been hacked at least once this season. Hacking is WAY up compared to last season.

DeAndre Jordan LAC 137 49

That was from a month ago, that 139 number is from mid-December. We're on pace for well over 400 hacks this year, probably closer to 500. :{ 

 

Last year only 4% of games had at least one hack, this year it's 12%.

I was responding to your point about switching forms and stuff. It's about muscle memory and being comfortable shooting a certain way. All of that is drastically harder to keep consistent when you've shot a certain way your entire life, when you're tired, and when you have no natural shooting touch. It's why you rarely see anyone in the league completely change their form.

The backboard thing is a good idea IMO. The underhand thing is silly though. I really really doubt anyone that can't shoot 50% normally is going to be better shooting underhand. It's a hard shot. It needs to be soft with a lot of arc.

So send him to a shrink or have him under hypnosis or something. Have him envision lessening his child support payments everytime he makes a free throw. ANYTHING would help laugh.gif

I understand where you're coming from, but it still takes less effort than how you'd traditionally shoot a free throw. Hell, someone even mentioned shooting with one hand with your arm extended as far out as you can. That sounds better than just shooting like someone who has a natural shooting touch.

ummm.... this is weird criteria. what counts as a hack? does fouling to stop the clock count? and theyre counting individual fouls to inflate the number? eghhhhh on this chart.

No.

An intentional foul away from the play to put someone at the line. It's simple.

I don't know what you mean by inflating the number.

When I said for Melo to come harder, I am implying that he should've went harder on the dunk attempt. 
Looked like he's got no lift on that two handed dunk attempt. 

Other than that, Melo's good with me.
