NO....it was definately psychological....talking of Shaq as well::
Number of games shooting 65% or better, year to year...
This type of inconsistency is NOT CONSISTENT with being a "skills" issue. 65% is not an incredibly difficult % to make, yet you can see Shaq was all over the place with how often he could shoot that mediocre % per game. I'm sure his actual FT shooting skill didn't change that much yearly.
