Adam Silver wants another year of Hack-a-Shaq data before changing rules

At last check, Adam Silver was on the fence about Hack-a-Shaq.

He was also gathering more information on the strategy.

Where does he stand now?

Silver on the Rich Eisen Show:

Given that I’m torn on it, I think where I come out is, let’s look at one more season of data.

NBA general managers reportedly don’t favor changing the rules now, either.

This isn’t the be-all, end-all. The competition committee will still have its say.

But it just doesn’t seem anyone in the NBA is passionate enough about changing the rules to make it actually happen.
