At the annual meeting of NBA general managers Wednesday in Chicago, there was no overwhelming consensus to change the rules to discourage teams from intentionally fouling poor free-throw shooters, league sources told CBSSports.com. "There is not enough support to change it," one executive in the meeting said. "It's one of those perception is bigger than reality issues." CBSSports.com

Clippers coach Doc Rivers, an influential member of the competition committee, has said repeatedly during the playoffs that he believes the rule will be changed for next season. One league source told CBSSports.com earlier this month that he estimated the chances of a rule change to discourage teams from intentionally fouling away from the ball at 85 percent. But teams that were against changing the rule became more entrenched after the numbers on intentional fouling were divulged Wednesday, and those that were on the fence heard nothing to change their minds. "It's part of the game," one of the executives said. "You need to make your free throws." CBSSports.com
