I HATE when NBA players can’t shoot free-throws, especially Centers and other big players. Yea, I know Shaq has giant hands and it’s like a small ball he’s holding. But that’s no excuse. When he was on Orlando, he was surrounded by great shooters. On the Lakers and the other teams he was on still had a multitude of shooters.
There is no excuse for it. Each team has trainers, even coaches that teach free-throws. There are instructional videos that show how to do it consistently. Also, you have players that can help you. You are surrounded by people that can help you.
They say the one thing that’s keeping people from saying the Clippers are a lock to win it all is their free-throws. Griffin and Jordan can’t shoot free-throws. You’re telling me that the faith of a championship is relying on these guys hitting their free-throws?
They can figure this out easily, because free-throws are essentially easy. It’s you vs. the rim. No defenders. The only other factor is crowd noise, but that happens in any game. If I can figure it out, then a professionally athlete paid millions of dollars and with a multitude of trainers and coaches around him can figure it out.
