Work ethic king Kobe shoots the least amount of practice free throws out of everyone not named Jordan Hill.

OCD is kicking in twice. They have everyone's surname but address MWP as Metta, and he's also out of alphabetical order

For big guys, the more inconsistent your form is, the bigger your % will drop. As i've said in previous threads, the best shooters like nash probably make 99%. The best shooters drop off around 10%, the average shooters drop around 20% (as seen by many on that chart), and the worst shooters can drop up to 30%. But yes, Dwight can indeed improve around that, but let's not act like he can do much better. Make a couple more per game and the difference will be around 20%.

but anyways, very interesting pic to see how professional ballers' FT rates are in practice. Thanks OP.


I used to agree that Big Men probably have a harder time shooting in general, but with the influx of European big men almost all of them showing quite a bit of range, I think it's safe to say that rather than big men not being able to shoot, it simply wasn't part of hte training programme they had when they developed from high school to the pros. I mean look at somebody like Amare, started out simply as an athletic freak and now can hit the midrange quite well.

if in practice we just have to step to the line and shoot, my percentage still isnt good, and id imagine, its not weay better than in games. but if we are shooting, say 20 free throws, you can get into a rhythm, and i shoot much better.

id say that makes a big difference even for professionals.

i admit i'm surprised. i didn't expect him to hit over 80% in practice. was expecting maybe 67%. a 33% drop off is ridiculous...
