which player do you think has the coolest ritual before he shoots his free throws?

i kinda like Hornacek's ritual, touching his forehead before he shoots it.

it was his way of waving hello to his kids.

how about J.O's lane violation baiting free throw? if he misses, he'll take another one because the opposite team will have a lane violation, if he makes, the violation will be negated.

J.O is a smart man. :clap:

Shaq and how he ritually missed free throws during his career.



Wait, you are telling me that those weren't intentional?! :facepalm::facepalm:

When I was like 14 I was obsessed with the Gilbert Arenas behind the back, started doing it. Back in the dayyy.

I like Nate's behind the back twice before he shoots.
I think Kidd blows a kiss to his kids too before he shoots.

i always emulated rip hamilton while shooting free throws.

ball spin, knee bend, practice form of right arm. deep breath. two dribbles in front, one to the right, knee bend, shoot

Nash how he licks his hands, practice form of right arm, touches slicked back hair and then ALWAYS makes it.

Karl Malone, talks to the ball for about 8.5 seconds before shooting. I've always wondered what he said to the ball?

I always like Rodman. No real ritual. Dribble ball 2-3x and throw it up with not a care in the world if it went it or not :laugh2:

But on a serious note, like many have mentioned, Rip, Arenas are pretty cool.

Gary Neal had a funny incident once where it's his deal to give daps after a FT and even though no one was there he proceeded to do it anyway.

Kevin Durant's Harlem Shake before FTs is the best ritual in the NBA right now. That's one cool cat.
