Default Fouling when up by 3 pts

Does anyone else find this to be a subtle way of cheating. I mean not rulebooks cheating but just morally wrong. It goes against the purpose of basketball and was not why the foul rule was created. Abusing rules like that may win you games but it takes away from the game itself. To me if you foul intentionally in that situation the team should automatically get 3 FT's.

I'd be okay with this rule if the team that was behind wasn't allowed to foul. Same shit.

It's not cheating, just a smart play. It may take away from the excitement at the end of games but it's a necessary move.

Well, that's just straight up not true. Necessary? No. Smart? Yes.

There's a code of ethics. I say that these teams that foul like that are ridiculous. The Clippers really showed what kind of team they are tonight. I don't hate 'em, but I have lost some respect for their brand of basketball.
