Andre Drummond Sets NBA Record for Missed Free Throws


The "hacking" strategy in basketball has gone too far. Everyone knows that big men who can't shoot free throws will be intentionally fouled often during a game to slow down the game for a team offensively, but it's also brutal to watch and the strategy rarely works out.

It's not a good look for the game and it creates for terrible basketball. It was already a ludicrous thing that was part of the sport, but McDaniels' nine seconds of five fouls took it to a whole new level.
