Sorry, but I'm not sure anyone's freethrows ever looked worse than Wilt's. Wilt threw those things up without a care in the world - other than to be done with it.

He actually had like 20 different free throw routines - one year he tried shooting them underhanded!

More Nate and whatever you have of West (defensive highlights are nice in particular...do you have anything sweet of he and Baylor running the break?).

Wilt shot them underhanded in his 50 point season (1961-62), based on Coach McGuire's advice. (Wilt, 1962, by Pomerantz).

Yes, he shot them that way perhaps until '67 or sometime thereafter, so he shot them underhand both his best pro FT% season ('62 @ .613) and also up to for sure his 2nd worst season ('67) at .414%, and perhaps he even shot that way in '68 too I just can't recall seeing him shoot free throws this way that season - and that was his worst season at below 40%. And maybe that's what prompted him to switch to the carefree looking overhand style that he used with the Lakers.

got any pre-broken-kneecap Elgin Baylor?

what about Tommy Heinsohn?

Early days Earl Monroe dude was incredible in Baltimore. They had like 5 point guards lol Don Ohl, Johnny Egan, and then they had Kevin Loughery and Jack Marin at forwards and old Ray Scott, which those guys are totally forgot. yeah. Got any early days Baltimore Bullets?

a little bit later on, any game between Wilt Chamberlain's Lakers & Chicago Bulls or the Bucks. Those were some incredible games. {edit: if you had some of those esp. from 1971 or 1972 you could see how Wilt would glide for 3 1/2 quarters and then Bill Sharman would talk to him for a timeout. They would walk along the sidelines and when you saw that, the game was over. At that point Wilt would wipe his face off with a towel and you would see sparks fly at that point.} San Diego Clippers. Or what about early Suns when they had Connie Hawkins? Fly Hawk!! That man was immensely skilled offense.
If you have now this is 70s but if you have some games where Bill Russell was doing color commentary I would like to watch some of them. Russell is the prototype of all great color commentary and better than almost everything out there today. He would watch teams for a few minutes and then he would just have this kind of pronouncement about what each team was trying to do........... and then he would just fall silent and you could just watch it unfolding exactly as he said it would. At times he was just literally astounding accuracy in what he saw happening.

I'd like to see Bob Lanier & Cowens - some of the actual games between those two guys were such a pure intensity you felt like the stands were going to catch on fire.
Friend of mine used to have a big old Zenith console tv with the built in hi-fi. We would drag that monster out onto his patio and sit under an umbrella with a bucket of something real cold to drink and watch games. During the commercial breaks he would crank out the Led Zeppelin or Jimi or Beatles and we'd be listening to Whole Lotta Love and watching some stupid commercial about a 1973 Buick. Anyhow by mid-70s it was like watching Ali & Frazier sometimes. Lot of fights. There were a couple of games that just got into all out brawls and the tv station would just change the program to something totally random, like, skiing or something else. Women's swimming, or ice skating in Norway.

But Lanier and Cowens is one in particular that we still talk about. There were 3 or 4 times they just threw down. They would go at it so bad that refs, coaches, and both entire teams would be standing between them trying to cool things off. Lanier was physically monstrous and would beat guys down on the court. Actually would hit them with his fists which, NO basketball player will ever hurt his hands. That man got thrown out of a lot of basketball games. But Dave Cowens would never let that happen to any Celtic. He was always ready to throw down on Lanier and did. Lanier was a big ol' boy but he ended up being Dave's b!tch for like 10 years.
