    Default Why is Lebron below average at Free Throws?

    Honestly there's millions of people in the world who can at least shoot 80% from free throws, hell I was that good at free throws in the 6th grade.

    I just don't understand why Lebron not only isn't good at free throws...he's below average.

    Someone help me.

    Something about not bulldozing his way to a rim shooks him up.

    Plus, as we saw in 2015, he ain't a good volume jump shooter.

    He has bad mechanics and fundamentals...partly due to illegal ped use

    What I don’t get is how he got worse. He used to at least be average.

    I think it's a mental problem, like he shook himself or something only at free throws. He has no problem with hitting tough shots during regular game play...but when everything stops and everyone is watching him at the free throw line...it's like he gets into his own head or something.

    I was always excited to shoot free throws because they were an easy two points.

    I used to think it was related to him being a power player because it was rare to see muscular guys with touch from the line. But he's improved his jumper all over the floor at various points, so why not ft too?

    6 finals losses got him rattled.

    They did a study on this, as a lot of people believed height was directly correlated with FT%.

    It was in fact weight that played the biggest factor. Makes sense as well, particularly if the player is muscle dense which LeBron is.

    More moving parts, more oxygen needed to fuel the muscle, and more room for error as a whole.

    But a lot of big men shoot better than he does. As a general rule, perhaps.but it isnt completely accurate.
