Funny. I was just going to type that.
Also double teams, stacking the line in football, etc.
Ok, "Hack-a-Shaq" is comparable. Double teams and stacking the line are not. Sure, you're putting up extra defenders, but you're not taking the ball out of the player's hands. He still has a chance; it's just tougher for him.
Miguel Cabrera had a chance
. You're really just talking about a matter of degree. Besides, the whole premise is that you make it tougher for one individual on the team and it creates opportunities for another member of the team. When Jordan was in his prime, other teams could've tripled teamed him and effectively shut him down if they thought that Steve Kerr couldn't shoot.
Baseball is a great game; I'm not sure why you guys feel compelled to make me defend other sports by making, "X can only happen in baseball" claims.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.
