Great Article on NBA Free Throw Shooting
Permalink  
 


Interesting article, however I'm not sure I agree with the title. The idea that poor FT shooting is not a result of a lack of practice is only half right. The problem is twofold: poor technique AND lack of practice. if you have poor technique, all the practice in the world won't help you because your mechanics will not result in a consistent shot. Once your mechanics are right, though, there is nothing but more practice. This is where the 10,000 hours principle in Gladwell's Outliers comes in. We talkin bout PRACTICE people.
