A change gonna come, indeed.
We’ve all been there – bored to death by the stuttering finish to an NBA match-up, watching the most nondescript player for Team A repeatedly intentionally foul – or hack-a-whoever – the worst free throw shooter from Team B.

It’s legal though, so it’s strategy, which basically just makes everything worse.
Well according to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver – not anymore.
