KEVIN Durant has a simple message for players who hate to get hacked.

"If you don't want to get hacked then work on your f---ing free throws."’s Royce Young tweeted the Oklahoma City Thunder star’s response to a question on Monday (Tuesday, Manila time).

A reporter asked Durant about the "Hack-a" strategy used by teams against opponents with notoriously poor free throw shooters — notably, centers DeAndre Jordan and Dwight Howard.

The strategy became popular during the heyday of dominant big man Shaquille O’Neal, and the “Hack-a” plan is still used by coaches, although it sometimes results in less entertaining endgames.
