    should D12 learn the rick berry free throw?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4eJSjwlD5o

    career 90% free throw shooter. he did granny shot underhand but was the 2nd leader in nba history in free throw shooting.

    i know d12 had a career free throw performance last night but when will we see the 3 for 14 d12 again?

    Did Shaq learn the Rick Barry underhand free throw?

    No.


    Dwight will be fine, it's just something he's going to have to work with for his career much like Shaq had to.

    Err? Dwight's never been as bad at the line as Shaq.

    Yeah, Shaq shot over 60% once, but followed it up with 4 straight seasons under 50%; one of which was damn near 40%.

    To say Dwight will be alright is one thing, to use Shaq as the measuring stick is quite another.

    He just needs to relax and shoot the damn ball. His form is not bad, though it can use a little tweaking. It's all in his head. He shot FT's pretty well last night...

    Nba players have too much ego to shoot underhand.

    He shoots over 80% in practise, it's about translating that success to the games, which he did very well yesterday... He said he wasn't thinking about making it last night, the only thought in his mind was "keep your elbow high and follow through".

    Hopefully he keeps it up.

    There isn't one player in the leauge that would do that. Rick Barry's sons didn't even try it.
