what if you just shoot 2 free throws in your whole career somehow and make both, then you will have 100% free throw shooting accuracy

Meh, I don't buy it. I haven't even watched the video lol, but if you're getting paid Millions of dollars to play this game, you should make 99% of your un-opposed shots. No matter how big or small....its literally the main part of the game that you're making a FORTUNE playing.

In the 2009 NBA season Jose Calderon finished the season with a 98.1 free throw percentage. That same year Ray Allen finished with a 95.1 free throw percentage. Those are the two highest free throw percentages at the end of a year. (Steve Nash was 93.3 and was third that year)

Rick Barry . Great free throw shooter . Shot underhanded or granny style . It made sense to me although I couldn't do it well . Barry was a great shooter all around , so he didn't do it by necessity . He didn't quite average 90% career but then he was a forward . He likes to talk about how today's players don't have the pride it takes to be a great free throw shooter . Wish Rick had the same philosophy about playing defense which he didn't do half the game .

When Nash was here in Dallas he had a small humble house in a middle class neighborhood and was very cool to everyone. No ego, regular guy. I'd hear stories of him surprising kids on the soccer field and kicking the ball around with whoever was there

I'd say it would be easy for her to have a 93% FT in comparison to curry if you consider the fact that he has to play in stadiums filled with screaming fans, while for her being in the WNBA she doesnt have to worry about that problem

Your % increases if you can stand there and repeatedly shoot them in rhythm. In a game situation, you're winded, the shots come sporadically, and there's a ton more pressure.

Hey whippersnappers, check out this geezer (Bob Cousey) who played over 60 years ago. He had a cameo in a movie, stood at the foul line, in street clothes, no warm up, decades after retiring and... just watch, you will not be disappointed. I promise. in-vid.net/video/%E0%A4%B5%E0%A5%80%E0%A4%A1%E0%A4%BF%E0%A4%AF%E0%A5%8B-6gDLsZlLEPw.html
