"A deadeye at charity throws..."

Shaq was better at free throws in high school and college too. What's up with these freak centers and foul shots?

Great stuff. Of course, his detractors will point out his overwhelming physical edge against the opposing players, but you can certainly see his SKILLS in that footage. BTW, his FT form was much better back then. Not sure why it progressively got worse after his college career. Even early in his NBA career he was shooting a decent .613 in one season.

61% isn't decent...

And his free throw form in this vid was horrible just like in any other vid. His shooting hand goes to the side on the release and not towards the basket on one shot it looks like, and on the free throw towards the end he doesn't extend his arm and hand but instead flicks it up with the balm facing the basket.
I have no idea how of all things you can credit him with good free throw shooting.


Also it's funny that they edited an high school vid of Wilt to make him look better. His pull up at 2.24 is a miss but they use a closeup of a ball going through coming from the wing lol.

Watch the first minute or so of this then...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rCWrGWuU2Ak&feature=fvsr

Actually...watch the entire seven minutes...

BTW, take a look at his PASSING in the last couple of minutes of that video. The greatest passing big man in NBA history. No wonder he was finishing THIRD and FIRST in assists in '67 and '68.
