Team USA cracks up after DeAndre Jordan airballs a free throw
The NBA introduced a rule change earlier this summer that should help curb the "hack-a-Shaq" strategies employed by many teams to put awful free-throw shooters at the line, but that isn’t going to stop international teams from taking advantage of DeAndre Jordan’s ability from the charity stripe at the Olympics.
At the end of an exhibition game Sunday night, China hacked Jordan while down 51 points, and Jordan chucked an airball. His teammates thought it was hilarious.

Jordan is a 42 percent shooter from the free throw line for his career, but he made a slight improvement to 43 percent last season.
