A tactic used to intentionally foul Shaquille O'Neal (or another player with a poor free throw shooting percentage, such as Ben Wallace) before the last 2 minutes of a basketball game. This strategy slows down the pace of the game, and is not what basketball was intended to be played like. This tactic is useless with less than 2 minutes, because the team that was fouled can then choose which player goes to the free throw line.
How come the Spurs beat the Suns again in the playoffs? Because Popovich decided to use hack a shaq.
