Rake-a-Blake: A Strategy to Stop Blake Griffin Dunking on Everybody
Despite being a rookie, Blake Griffin’s performance under the basket is simply phenomenal. That’s why an NBA basketball team, namely Oklahoma City Thunder, are now starting to reduce the number of Blake’s highlight films on NBA TV by implementing something similar to “Hack-a-Shaq” strategy to stop Shaquille O’Neal domination in his heyday.
Introducing – “Rake-a-Blake” – a similar strategy to “Hack-a-Shaq,” purposed to prevent Blake Griffin dunking and dominating the low-post by fouling him intentionally, forcing him to shoot free-throws. Yeah, I know… this is NBA basketball, y’all!
But just like Shaq, Blake shows no sign of slowing down, even though he may be getting less dunks. A sign of greatness to come? Maybe.
It’s probably a good tactic, despite being dirty and… er… cowardly. Blake Griffin’s free throw percentage is 62 percent. So unless Blake is able to boost his free throw accuracy, Rake-a-Blake will soon to be implemented by other NBA Teams.
