Default Dwight Loses Free Throw Shooting Contest w/ LA Kings Mascot

Quote:
After practice, Bailey challenged Howard to a free-throw shooting contest on a side hoop.
He won. But the competition didn't stop there.
From Dave McMenamin of ESPN LA via (ugh) Sulia:
Dwight said it didn't count unless it was on the main court. So Bailey beat him at free throws on the main court. Then Dwight moved the contest out to the NBA 3-point line. They shot 3s from the corner and Bailey, a man standing about 5-10 wearing a lion costume, beat Howard, a man standing 6-9 and wearing his basketball practice uniform and sneakers as the first person to make five 3s.

Howard claimed he wasn't trying because "you have to lose to win" to help Bailey feel better about himself.

Didn't Dwight make like 80 percent of his FTs in practice once? He seems to just suck at FTs in games.

I honestly doubt he shoots 80% in practice. Also, you can get into rhythm in practice from shooting them over and over again instead of doing different things in between.

I also doubt he lost intentionally, whatever helps you sleep at night Dwight.

He's been in the league for 8 years now, it's not a mental block. He just sucks at shooting them.
