K.J. McDaniels fouls Andre Drummond five times in nine seconds (Video)

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.
