Although writer Claire McNear wants to get rid of Hack-a-Shaq, these new rules aren't it. The Ringer in a follow up tweet called the new rules "baloney." She writes: "The NBA’s new rule change just means we’ll be watching bricked free throws earlier."

Now the game will cater to players who can't make free throws. UGH.

Some critics even agree with Mark Cuban. Wow!
