Re: Free throw routine?
In around sixth grade, at the University of Michigan Basketball Camp, they had a shot doctor come in and give a talk. One of his driving points was keeping a free throw routine as simple as possible. Contrary to many other players, he placed the nail perfectly in between his feet and did not stagger those feet. Then, three dribbles and rise. As a result, that's been my free throw routine ever since, and I've had excellent results, as I shot 87% from the stripe my junior year.
-Both feet up to the line
-Body directly in middle of paint
-3 comfortable dribbles
