Free Throw Shooting %


I had a sudden thought early in the morning and I decided to share that thought with others.  Because I just like to see my own thoughts in blog form.

The sudden thought that sprung into my mind at the unforgiving time of 6:00 AM was quite simply, why do NBA caliber players struggle with free throw shooting.  It is a maddening thing to see a player, standing a mere 15 feet from the backboard, throw up a brick.  This should be the easiest shot they ever get; it's a reasonable distance from the basket, it's uncontested, and they don't have to worry about that pesky dribbling.  Last year, only 61 players of a possible 450 players (for whatever reason I couldn't find that exact number of players for 2009-2010 season, and no I didn't wanna look at every NBA roster and get the exact number).  That means, potentially, only 13.5% of players hit 80% or above.  I find that atrocious given the fact that these men have played this game, in most cases, their whole lives.  I'm merely stating that I think they should be better than what they are at free throwing shooting given that it should one of easiest shots they take during a game.  Thank you for reading. (also, if you have that kind of free time, you can go into further detail.  I, however, work... and I hate math).
