Things To Know

I'd wondered about that:

A defensive strategy in which the defensive team delibrately commits a foul on an offensive player with a poor free-throw percentage. Disrupts offensive flow and reduces the chance of a score. Strategy named in dubious honor of Shaquille O'Neal, who is a Mighty Man and a Hall of Fame lock but is utter crap from the line (.524 according to Basketball Reference).

So basketball's not a gentlemen's game. Psh.
