Head coach of San Antonio Spurs has some fun with Shaquille O’Neal

Shaquille O’Neal is a dreadful free-throw shooter. Hence, opposing NBA teams have been imposing an unofficial rule called “Hack a Shaq” in close games. Teams will foul O’Neal late in games if they’re trailing as O’Neal will likely only make 1 free throw, and his opponents get the ball back. O’Neal has bitched and moaned about this practice for years, but never really improved his free-throw shooting either. During last year’s NBA playoffs, the San Antonio Spurs employed the Hack a Shaq technique often and Shaq ripped the team publicly for it. Last night Spurs’ head coach Gregg Popovich decided to have some fun with Shaq.
